Concert and Performance Dates

We're pretty psyched about visiting Calgary, Alberta (Canada) less than a week away!  No, it's not because we love way-below-freezing weather -- but because of the Soundasaurus Festival! Best of all, it will be our rare Nosferatu soundtrack show (aka Reels Of Steel) which we've done just once in the last six years.  We'll also participate in a group Q&A.  There's also sound installations and other events, all at the Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts.

Evolution Control Committee 
What happens when you make a movie soundtrack using only soundtrack albums of other movies? The Evolution Control Committee composes a score to the silent horror classic Nosferatu resulting in a fun collage of familiar tunes, DJ’d live. In Reels of Steel a tightly-composed soundtrack is spontaneously created using only vinyl records, pushing the limitations of copyright. Followed by a Q&A with the artists.
