This Thursday: Badlands

Artist Bio:
Lethbridge based alt country quartet Badlands pays homage to the near desert like conditions in southern Alberta. The band’s namesake provides a fitting backdrop to Ali Cat’s songwriting musings that explore personal struggles, triumphs and temptations. Heart songs, after all. The stuff that’s at the centre of the country music canon. It’s the same distilled spirit that raised the likes of Sarah Shook & the Disarmers, the Turnpike Troubadours and others to come before. A mattress on your back is good to have, sure. Keep a look out for where Ali and company choose to land as they explore the musical landscape that’s raised them.

Weekly concerts on Rotary Square at Casa every Thursday night after work from 5pm – 7pm. Meet your friends, have a drink and listen to local music in the downtown core.
While you’re visiting, explore the galleries inside Casa, as it is always FREE.
Continue your evening by visiting the many restaurants, bars and performance venues after the concert
