ABOUT P.O.D. http://payableondeath.com/
ABOUT ISLANDER http://www.victoryrecords.com/islander
It has been quite a journey for ISLANDER, who, in just over a year, have gone from obscurity to a band in constant radio rotation. Fueled with a combination of emotionally capturing songs and audience grabbing live shows, ISLANDER continue to lead at the forefront of their peers.
The thrilling trip for this quartet began in the foothills of Greenville, S.C. with the release of their Victory Records debut Pains. in 2013. Now, a lethal combination of alt-rock, punk and nu-metal that recalls the finest of bands like Refused and Deftones, ISLANDER have released their full length Violence & Destruction to critical recognition. Comprised of members Mikey Carvajal on vocals, Andrew Murphy on guitar, drummer Eric Frazier and bassist Chris Doot, ISLANDER recorded the album with producer Cameron Webb (SILVERSTEIN, ALKALINE TRIO) at Hollywood's NRG Studios. It is twelve tracks of American rock anthems spawned by individual struggle and organic affection. The result is a refreshing and unpredictable performance of cutting edge, modern-day rock with classic punk overtones fused with groove laden beats.
Violence & Destruction awakens the nerves and lets life in. From the blockbuster single 'Coconut Dracula', to the outlaw collaboration of 'Criminals' with P.O.D.'s Sonny Sandoval and the fist-pumping title track, ISLANDER sonically 'demonstrate that fragile dichotomy between softness and weight in a riff', as described by Noisey/VICE.
Already this year, ISLANDER have been part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and their full length release Violence & Destruction was deemed one of Revolver's 'Most Anticipated Of 2014'. The proof is evident in the response.
Alternative Press confirmed that ISLANDER was one the '100 Bands You Need To Know' as 2014 continues to shine with festival confirmations at Aftershock in Sacramento and Louder Than Life in Louisville.
ABOUT THE PATH LESS TRAVELED www.tpltband.com
Breaking down the barriers of convention with three vocalists fuelling their ferocious sound - Calgary's The Path Less Traveled adds a uniquely intense approach to the radio rock, punk and metal we all know and love.
Kick drum madness, frantic guitars and a straight for the throat spirit have all led to unforgettable live performances backed by a dedicated fan base built out of camaraderie and respect.
ABOUT NEGATIVE EARTH http://www.negative-earth.com/
Negative Earth is an electronic gravity rock project. An alternative industrial feel delivering intense lyrics and aggressive riffs that stem from a negative to positive transformation. Incorporating electronic pulses and ominous melodies, Negative Earth leaves a searing brand of celestial inspiration. This is the undying symphony from inside the unnerving infinity. That somber little sphere spinning in all of us.

Back To Your Roots
The Blind Beggar is proud to bring you one of the best rock shows that Calgary has to offer! We've selected four of Calgary's top original punk rock bands and asked them to put a spin on their typical sets in order to bring you back to the bands that made you fall in love with music...
Coming Out Swinging: Calgary's truest SoCal sounding punk band is paying homage to one of the reasons they play music: Green Day. They'll be covering everything from Dookie to American Idiot, all while throwing in some of their own tunes to show Calgary that they bleed punk rock. Check them out at www.facebook.com/comingoutswinging and www.comingoutswinging.bandcamp.com
Sparrows Over Spain: Calgary's polished punk entity came together from the humble beginnings of Calgary's own Rockets and Dinosaurs, and stepped on the gas pedal. Recently qualifying for CBC's searchlight contest, SOS was the obvious choice for Chicago's punk king pins: Rise Against. https://www.facebook.com/sparrowsoverspain?fref=ts
The Path Less Traveled : The band that is too heavy to be punk, but not heavy enough to be metal is covering their obvious predecessor and doppelgänger: Canada's own Sum 41. Taking you through tunes like Fat Lip, The Hell Song, and Pieces, they'll remind of high school, and all of the great and awkward things that came with it. https://www.facebook.com/TPLTofficial
Colour in the Clouds: If you haven't heard of them yet, you should. After making some serious waves in the all ages scene, Colour in the Clouds has put out 2 EPs since their inception in 2014 and have showed no signs of letting up. The moment you hear them, you'll know why they were the obvious choice for Alexisonfire. Recently announced for a reunion show in September at X-fest, it's the perfect time to get a refresher course on why they were "the only band ever". https://www.facebook.com/ColourInTheClouds
The event will be hosted by Calgary's own radio host JD Lewis, and there will be prizes given out of some of your favourite albums in between band's sets such as Crisis, American Idiot, All Killer / No Filler, and The Sufferer and the Witness.
COME EARLY! This event WILL HIT CAPACITY, and is not one that you want to miss!
$10.00 Age limit: 18+
