the smalls Reunion

Some cool news came out this week about an Edmonton band re-uniting for a couple of gigs. The band I am talking about is the smalls, a metal band that shut it down over 10 years ago. This band was hugely popular during the 90's in Western Canada, releasing four albums, and constantly touring, which helped them sell over 40,000 albums independently in there time.

There had been rumours for a while now about a reunion, but with Corb Lund doing good on his own with his country/roots band Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans, I didn't think this reunion would happen. But lo and behold the band will be playing two gigs this summer, Calgary's X-Fest (Aug.30th) and Edmonton's Sonic Boom Fest (Aug.31st) both held during the September long weekend.

It will involve all the original members Corb Lund on bass, Mike Caldwell on vocals, Dug Bevans on guitar and Terry Johnson on drums. These shows promise to be very popular and hopefully lead to more gigs and maybe a new album, here is hoping so.

In other concert news...Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans will be playing the Interstellar Rodeo Festival in Edmonton on Friday July 25th headlining the opening night of this festival.
