Pick of the Weekend: Haunted Souls

New local supergroup to distract joyless prairie citizenry.

A local weirdo noise punk group has arisen in Saskatoon, shockingly enough formed by members of other bands. Dubbed Haunted Souls, the four-piece is making their recorded debut on the upcoming Bloodstains Across the Prairies compilation on Mammoth Cave, but plan on showing off to assorted friends at Amigos on Jan. 13. Other bands abound, including locals The Eyebats, and out-of-towners Teledrome and Fist City.

Citizenry remains nonplussed.
