BRAIDS Are Going On Tour!

In Canada, Celebrate Your Scene, Gigs, Montréal on May 4, 2010 at 9:21 pm

The Montreal-based Calgary-natives Braids are about to embark on a cross-Canada tour, which does include two stops in the United States (New York City and Boston), starting on May 20 in Toronto and ending (temporarily, at least) the weekend of June 30-July 2 in Calgary at the Sled Island Music Festival. They’ll be making several stops in Ontario (Toronto, London, Guelph, and Subury), one stop in Quebec (Montreal), one stop in Manitoba (Winnipeg), one stop in Saskatchewan (Regina), several stops in Alberta (Edmonton, Calgary, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Canmore and High Prairie), and several stops in British Columbia (Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, and Nelson). Holly Miranda will be opening the first few shows and then from June 5 until the end of this leg of the tour, Gobble Gobble will be opening all Braids shows.
