Republik - The Antlers
I had to huck across downtown Calgary to make it to The Antlers' headline performance at Republik on 17th Ave. and I was lucky to get in because it was jam-packed. This Brooklyn based band plays progressive indie folk music that is pure beauty. They had the crowd in a trance, and I felt like I was interrupting something when I came in late. The room was decorated with lightning bolts and clouds, a perfect setting for music to console you through a perfect storm.
