After 6 years of applying the Dandelions got into Sled Island! We are beyond excited and can’t wait to kick off the summer in Calgary with all of the best buds.
We play Friday the 24th at The Palomino at 4:15 as part of an Alberta Music Showcase
Next we play Saturday the 25th at Central Memorial Park at 4:00!
We had a whirlwind trip to Toronto but it was a blast! We got a review from Telescope Media, got to perform on Humble and Fred and played CKUA before we left! Links below!
“Jesse Northey and crew were prepared to impress from song one.
The quartet has been described as Flaming Lips-like and that was certainly evident (see them covering “Race for the Prize” below, for a taste). They also reminded of modern Canadian guy-girl harmony groups like The Salteens and Young and Sexy. Their material is intelligent and catchy—see “Til The End” above—and their sophomore album, out later this year, should make a splash.
Kudos on the enthusiasm in the face of a crowd that was 80% staff and other bands”
“Jesse and the Dandelions are this week’s featured act on TransCanada Music West! Hear songs from their forthcoming album, ‘True Blue’. Then, catch them live at The Needle Vinyl Tavern, Wednesday, May 11 in support of the Red Cross:
The album is complete! Masters came back and sound great! Discs are in production. The album won’t be out until later this year, but we promise it’ll be worth the wait. We are planning some big moves and hope to be able to get it into more ears than ever before!
