CALGARY — Luckily for my first edition of this new column full of Calgary rock show listings, the city is blowing up with events worth checking out, so you guys get less ramblings and more recommendations. Yes, soon the city will be overrun by Stampede tomfoolery and many of us will seek cover in our favourite off-the-beaten path haunts, but if you are the type who likes to take advantage of the free music at the Coke Stage, a couple Calgary artists will be holding it down for y’all (I too shuddered at that word use). BeatRoute favourites like the raspy and rugged JJ Shiplett and The Dudes will be on stage July 7th, and former Calgarian mainstay, the honey-voiced Jocelyn Alice will be performing on the 13th.

Starting July 18th, the Ship & Anchor crowd will be welcoming back its fourth season of the raucous and sometimes comically offensive weekly Punk Rock Sing-along, featuring the fantastic off-kilter hosting skills of Ghost Factory’s Rob Gruszecki and Eric Svilpis. Prepare for a weekly romp through the best punk songs of all time on the Ship’s packed patio as guests are encouraged to scream their lungs out along to live acoustic versions. There’s also awesome prizes, and the first week is Rob’s Bachelor Party edition, so don’t miss it, because he’s a gem and will soon be married and no doubt way less fun (kidding of course).

Starting July 21st, Calgary Folk Music Festival begins with some of the best headliners we have seen including the ethereal Swedish folk God, Jose Gonzalez, and finger picking wizard The Tallest Man on Earth. As far as Calgary representation goes, post-rock/atmospheric newbie Evan Freeman will be performing, and the crowd-warming beard-core Neo-folk of The Northern Beauties will be in full swing. Additionally, former Calgarians BRAIDS will be bringing their multi-instrumental experimentalism back home.

On the smaller/newer side of the festival scale, Southern Alberta Hardcore Fest takes place early in July at Distortion. Go get some spin kicks in and support an up-and-coming festival and some awesome Calgary and out of town bands.

Finally, Kensington will be turned into Diagon Alley July 31st in commemoration of J.K. Rowling’s new release, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. With the whole community taking part in the day transformation, prepare for a swarm of witches and wizards to be running the Kensington streets. Get your wands ready!
