Past song of the week / August 2009

Grand Analog
"I Play My Kazoo"

From the album Metropolis is Burning

Featured track, available from August 26 to September 3

On August 29, 2009, Manitoba Music will say farewell to summer by taking over The Forks’ Scotiabank Stage for one last musical extravaganza, dubbed Stage 8/29.

The concert’s formula is simple: five DJs, five bands, five hours. But into that brisk format, Manitoba Music has packed some of the most explosive performers from the keystone province. Stage 8/29 will feature turntable sets by DJs Mike B., Penny Lane, Dlo, Bmac, and Solidaze, as well as blistering live performances from rap'n'roll collective Grand Analog, roots darling Alana Levandoski, ska kings The Afterbeat, electronic pioneers LeBeato, and rockers Novillero. To bring visual life to the vibrant sounds, there will also be live art demonstrations by a crew from progressive downtown art studio The Graffiti Gallery.

To celebrate, we're offering up Grand Analog's new song, "I Play My Kazoo," off Metropolis is Burning. Click the red button and it's yours!

Meanwhile, come down to The Forks for the free show on August 29, 4-9pm to catch some great live music.
