This Saturday’s show at Amigos, a fundraiser for the band’s upcoming UK tour and appearance at the End of the Road Festival in North Dorset, was conceived in pretty much the same way the band was: a flagrantly sketchy collection of pals making a massive clatter together.
Tellingly, the whole thing has kind of turned into a hilarious shitshow. Which, of course, is pretty much the best hang outs with friends you could ever ask for.
The band has gathered a mammoth collection of local musicians – freaks, creeps and weirdos the whole lot of them – to help back up the show in true Slow Down fashion – an ostentatious presentation that will no doubt nearly implode Amigos Cantina with over-the-top-ness and a perversely diverse collection of Saskatoon’s finest whatever-rock.
Other friends that are playing are: Maybe Smith, the Foggy Notions, Foam Lake, the Karpinka Brothers, soso, Reform Party, Jeans Boots, the Eyebats, Pearson, Father Figures and the Browntones.
