    YAOCAVE (acoustic)
    Very pleased to have YAOCAVE back in Calgary for one of two performances this month (the other is electric, and on the 14th at Good Luck Bar). This is music in a state of transition, apparently, and in past shows have yielded a variety of performance modes and stlyes, all of which have been engaging and somehow connected. In their own words: "yaocave is a fluid project from montreal and calgary rooted in popular electronic emotions and buddhist bubblegum ballads." Ok, sounds good!

    WW
    A new grouping featuring the talents of Mr. Daniel Wilson on snare drum, cymbal, and baritone guitar, and Mr. Jason Philip Wierzba on guitar. Wilson was last seen on Bug Incision stages many years ago, alonside Jzero Schurmann, at the old Soda on 12th avenue. He is also known for his kitwork with many Calgary bands from the last decade, and is currently manning the drums for the Northwest Passage. Wierzba is emerging from a hibernation of his public musical activities, and we are excited to see what his return to the stage brings.

    DADGE/MCGREGOR/OTA/ZANIN
    A truly odd grouping of musicians who will play together in this formation for the first time. There are, however, connecting threads. Chris Dadge (drums) and Jeff McGregor (sax) have been playing together for many years, in a wide spectrum of situations, including minimum jazz-wage lounges, as a free improvising duo, and Jeff often with Dadge's band Lab Coast whenever possible. Whitney Ota is one of the shining lights of Calgary's fringe/experimental music scene, issuing classy albums from the likes of Maurizio Bianchi, Mongst, Jack Wright, and Chris Riggs, as well as performing in various projects such as the mighty free-rock trio Burro, his solo kosmiche worship vehicle Yankee Yankee, and lots of ad hoc collaborations (including guitar/drums duos with Dadge). Liam Zanin (guitar) has emerged into the city's scene in a big way over the last few years, as a guitarist in the soon-to-be-defunct band Lunatique, and manipulating electricity with acts such as Women Of Jazz and State Buddhism.
