CALGARY — August, you sneaky bastard, how are you here already? With festival season in full swing, and some promoters and collectives like 403DNB and Noctilux taking well-deserved holidays after a hefty year of shows, August is a relatively quiet month. Here are a few shows to fill your lazy summer days in the city.

The Hifi is presenting Montreal’s Tommy Kruise on August 6th. He has been making a serious impact in the early years of his career; this will be a very fresh and exciting show. Hood bass lines for days!

On August 9th, Miike Snow will be gracing the stage of MacEwan Hall. Made up of pop mastermind Swedes Bloodshy & Avant (who have produced for likes of Madonna, Britney Spears and Kelis) and vocalist-producer Andrew Wyatt, the trio will perform with all the gusto and melodic knack they can manage while in town.

A recent addition to Calgary’s monthly dance parties is NOIR at Habitat. This night is focused on tribal percussion and “psychedelic saxophone” based deep house. Featuring Rusty Meeks, Jared Andres, TKL and Lenza, this one will quickly becoming a recurring fave on the 12th.

On the 19th, Le Cirque de la Nuit presents Esenta at Habitat. This will be a celebration of their “ringleader” Bass Caravan. It’ll also feature Edmonton’s Future Funk, Jessica Pitt, Paul Who? and Applebaum, as well as belly dancing, hooping and plenty of other circus fun.

Waynefest, which runs from August 19-August 21, will be a much smaller, more intimate festival setting taking place in Burnt Timbre, Alberta. Tickets are only $40 and a lineup of local talent is still yet to be released.

A true pioneer of bass music Grenier, previously known as DJG, will perform at Hifi on August 20th with Calgary’s Overland on opening duties. Expect a night of deep, driving techno.

Hoping you all are making the most of these summer months, and as always stay tuned for more show listings. September is already looking like it’s going to be a very stacked month.
