The Sheepdogs will return to Kamloops on Wednesday, Jan. 18, for a show at Night Shift on Fifth — and tickets are going fast.
The band is touring following the June release of its seventh album, Outta Sight.
Evan Currie, the band's lead singer, said the band took negative energy from the pandemic and turned it around.
“A no-bullshit approach, a workmanlike ability to put our heads down and play resulted in a real feeling and vibe on the record that I think is special,” Currie said. “It’s something that just might have saved us and the feeling on the album is us taking that negative pandemic energy and expressing it, transferring it, through non-bummer straight ahead rock ‘n’ roll.”
The Saskatoon five-piece rock band was formed in 2004 and has released seven albums since 2007. The band was the first unsigned group to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and has picked up four Juno Awards along the way.
Doors at Nightshift on Fifth, downtown at Lansdowne Street and Fifth Street, will open at 8 p.m. Tickets to the age 19-plus show are $40 plus fees, available online at ticketweb.ca.
