Sled Island Festival

Calgary, Alberta (Canada – the world!) is hosting the second annual Sled Island festival between June 25-28. The lineup this year is absolutely insane (Wire!!), and I am writing about this here because my band Endangered Ape is playing, as well as other SevenTenTwelve favourites such as NO AGE, The Ostrich, The Cryptomanics, DD/MM/YYYY, Japandroids and Azeda Booth. Plus, lots of other big-name acts to get excited about – Deerhunter, Mogwai, Of Montreal, Yo La Tengo, Drive By Truckers, Okkerville River, Scout Niblett…
