Festivities :: Ghost Throats [Edmonton, May 13-15]


There is an unusually wild Post-Hardcore scene thriving in Alberta. Untamed teenaged beasts running rampant with empty lungs and fists full of camaraderie. A singularity festering within our western abandon. It all culminates in an annual festival aptly named Ghost Throats. Organized by some familiar names within the Weird Canada cosmos (Kevin Stebner (Bart Records), Andrew Benson (Crippled Children), and Cecil Frena (GOBBLE GOBBLE)), the festival veers from the pop pantheon and remains harshly fringe, obliterating audiences with condensed signals of sound and idea.

Date: Friday, May 13th through Sunday, May 15th, 2011.
Location: Alberta Avenue Community Hall (9210 118 Avenue Northwest)
Price: $10 per day or $20 for a 3-day advance pass
