It’s March, and winter seems like it’s here to stay. We can’t let it win though, guys; that’s just what it wants.


Besides, better things than winter are happening here at Royal Mountain. Hollerado has just finished building themselves a recording studio and are now hard at work on their next record. In addition to the recent Juno nom, they have also found themselves on the Prism Prize shortlist thanks to Marc Ricciardelli’s video for ‘So It Goes’. They are also starting to announce some summer festival shows including TURF festival in Toronto, and Squamish in British Columbia.


Speaking of new show dates, PUP has been to Europe and back, and are now tackling the states and the west coast with Solids. SXSW is next week and PUP has four, yes four, shows happening during the festival….3 of which are on one day. Here’s hoping they come back alive, we kind of like them.



Alvvays has a couple of shows lined up this week; Friday they’re in Ottawa with Etiquette and Stella Ella Ola, and Saturday they come home to strut their stuff at The Silver Dollar.   


Summer is coming, it will be here to save us soon, so hang in there.
