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.

Apocalypse Kow Spring Fling – Friday, June 16. 7:30 pm. Tickets: $15 adults/$10 students and seniors. Location: Happy Harbor Comics (10729 104 Avenue NW)

ETown Vocal Music Society presents Bring Your Jukebox Money – Sunday, June 18. 4:30 pm. Tickets: $17.50 advance online / $20 at the door cash only. Location: Royal Alberta Museum Theatre (12845 102 Ave NW)

Edmonton A Cappella Festival! April 8

Apocalypse Kow has been working on a lot of things behind the scenes. At our big, annual goal-setting meeting, one of the things we wanted to work on this year was to get more involved with Edmonton’s music community. After 18 years of operating in the secret, underground festivals (like the Fringe, Kaleido, and Festival of Trees) and performing at little-known venues (such as the Shaw Conference Centre, Commonwealth Stadium, and the Winspear Centre), we thought it was high time came out from the shadows and do a big show.

To that end, Apocalypse Kow is hosting the first Edmonton A Cappella Festival (poster at the top of this post). One night, four local groups, all a cappella. Unlike Northern Harmony, an a cappella show which we have also done, this show is a non-competitive one. We want to showcase some of the great a cappella music that is happening in our city that you may not have heard about!

The Edmonton A Cappella Festival is happening really soon – April 8th, at the Journey Church of God, doors open at 7pm, show at 7:30pm. Tickets are only $15, but if you’re a student, you can get in for $5. That’s right, only FIVE DOLLARS! So bring your friends, your family, your choir, anyone you think would enjoy a night of a cappella styles. In addition to Apocalypse Kow, you’ll see 6 Minute Warning, The Chickadeez, and High Street Sound.

So come out to the first of what we hope to be many evenings of Edmonton a cappella. And bring your piggy bank because groups will have CDs and other merchandise available for sale at the show! If you just can’t wait to buy your ticket, we have an Eventbrite page up for the festival! And you can find us on Facebook, too!
