Okanagan Music Rundown: From Crowd the Joanna to Bush Party, your week will be filled with great live music

Pencil these great shows into your calendar this week

Last week was a long weekend and I definitely took full advantage.

Friday night I kicked things off at Fernando’s to see Heron, Bort and The Grudge on their The Decibel Worship tour. I thought my ears were going to start bleeding, but it was so worth it. On Tuesday I steered myself over to see Wintersleep, Kelowna’s own rising stars, Post Modern Connection opened up for them and filled Sapphire with their dreamy rock tunes and then Partner took the stage with their unique blend of punk rock. They put on an amazing show and I live for a lighter used as a slider.

Wednesday night was a double header, That Awful Variety show that takes place every Wednesday was amazing, seeing local bands broken down and performing acoustic was amazing. Scott Gibson from Escape Goat performed punk rock, unplugged and I don’t think I have ever loved punk more. Then we got to check out West of Hell who were headlining over at Munnin’s Post. There was a saw and metal, sparks flew and I may be turning into a bit of a metal head because of it.

Definitely check it out this Wednesday, and I will tease you with the fact that I have an article coming featuring the creators very soon.

This weekend It’s my birthday so it is time to celebrate with some great music.

I plan on spending Friday over at Doc Willoughby’s Downtown Pub to see Hired Guns and The Psycherelics, I have heard nothing but good things about these bands and I cannot wait to check them out.

Remember last week when I told you about Sarah Bee? Well now you can see her take the stage with her band, Crowd the Joanna. This band is lively, so grab a coffee before going to the show, you will need all the energy to keep up with them.
