The Edmonton A Cappella Festival

Happy New Year, Kowpokes!

We’ve really hit the ground running this year, planning and prepping for an event that we hope you’ve already heard about (if not from social media, then at least from the title of this blog post).

Yes, it’s true! The Edmonton A Cappella Festival is back for a record 2nd time! And this time it’s bigger, better, bolder, boulder,  balder, and with at least as many bowler hats as we had last year.

Here are the details:
Time: 7:30 pm
Date: February 3rd
Place: The theatre at Harry Ainlay High School (4350 111 Street).

Groups featured include:

We hope you can make it out as this is sure to be an outstanding family friendly time.

June Concert Alerts!

Friends, it’s turning into a busy June month for Apocalypse Kow! Well, let’s face it, it’s more like a busy weekend, but it’s taking all our focus.

So how can you, our friends, see us, your favourite comedy a cappella quintet, the weekend of June 16-18? Here’s how!

First up, on Friday, June 16, it’s our Spring Fling! (Yes, it’s STILL spring then) It’s the time of year where we’re gearing up for Fringe, so you can hear what we’ve been working on. A HUGE thanks to Happy Harbor Comics for giving us a space. You can find tickets here.

Then, on Sunday afternoon, we’re so excited to be singing alongside of the ETown Vocal Music Society at their “Bring Your Jukebox Money” concert. ETown Augmented, ETown Minors, and Apocalypse Kow will be singing #1 hit songs at the old Royal Alberta Museum Auditorium. You can find tickets here.

That’s right! Two shows in three days! If you don’t see us then, you might be waiting until our Fringe show in late August.
