Pick Of The Day (Tomorrow Edition): The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer

Based in Vancouver, this blues-rock duo is composed of guitarist/drummer Matthew Rogers and vocalist/harmonica player Shawn Hall. They’ve played Regina a couple of times in the last year, and will be back in town tomorrow night to play a show at the Exchange that’s being presented by the Regina Blues Association. The show should get going at 8 p.m., and tickets are $20 advance and $25 door.

To give you a taste of what The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer are about, here’s video of an in studio performance of the song “Wake Up”:


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
