Calgary post-punk collective Crack Cloud plays at Rotondes on 29 May and Delano has tickets to give away.
Described as a “a many-headed beast” by Loud and Quiet, Crack Cloud from Calgary is a fluid collective that can perform as a three piece, a full art-rock orchestra, or just one person solo. The post-punk outfit operated as a rehabilitative outlet for a revolving cast of multi-disciplinary artists, recovering addicts and people who work with mental health patients and people with addiction. Their music is reminiscent of danceable post-punk artists like Gang of Four or Talking Heads, while on stage they sport the paramilitary chic of anarchist punk collectives Crass or Chumbawamba, says The Guardian.
Check out 2017 track “Swash Swash” or the more recent “The Next Fix” to get an idea of what the band is all about.
Support comes from the “ecstatic, vital, and brilliantly unhinged” Guerrilla Toss. Full details of the concert can be found here.
Delano has pairs of tickets to give away to the gig next Wednesday. To enter the draw to win a pair, simply answer the question below and fill out the form. Deadline is noon on Monday 27 May.
