Lethbridge, Alberta's "Love And Records Festival" Is Not To Be Missed

If you're planning to travel in Southern Alberta in September, there is one unique tradition that you definitely won't want to miss.  The Love & Records Festival takes place every autumn in the heart of sunny downtown Lethbridge, Alberta. Typically occurring on the second or third Saturday of the month, this free, single-day outdoor event has established itself as one of the province's most distinctive parties.

Thank you Lethbridge College for supporting Love & Records

The sponsorship provided by the Lethbridge College allowed the Love & Records planning team to bring a Ferris Wheel to this year's event - on a by-donation basis.  The best part is that donations will be accepted in exchange for rides in support of student scholarships at the Lethbridge College!

L&R Artist Profile: Geoff Berner

Singer/songwriter/accordionist/novelist Geoff Berner’s music combines klezmer (for the uninitiated, the folk music of Eastern European Jews), punk, political satire, and Balkan dance rhythms. He writes sharp, literate songs that make you want to weep, laugh, grind your teeth, or kick out a window – often all at the same time. A lot of famous people have covered his compositions. Look it up.

Community Support, LP, Support L&R

L&R Artist Profile: Royal Canoe

A six-piece ensemble from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Royal Canoe give you everything, but on their own maniacally hybrid terms. It's one thing to reference a particular style, or even a range of styles. It's another thing entirely to grab huge handfuls of sounds from pretty much anywhere, throw them all together and come up with something both cohesive and totally distinctive—something that also happens to ripple and crack with energy. This is what Royal Canoe does best.

L&R Artist Profile: Five Alarm Funk

Hot, sweaty dance floors with feet stomping and every body moving. Grooves for days. Monster horns and shredding psych-rock guitars. These are among the elements that make up the Five Alarm Funk experience. The Vancouver-based band is nine men strong and over a decade deep into a career that has seen it release five acclaimed albums and burn up stages across the country on four national tours. And this vehicle isn’t about to slow down. In fact, Five Alarm Funk is just picking up steam.
