Rattle Shake

Rattle Shake, a six-night festival of musical mayhem, kicks off this Wednesday (October 13) with Winnipeg's Telepathic Butterflies and Vancouver's the Neins at the Railway Club. Other highlights include a CD release party (also at the Railway) on Thursday (October 14), for local roots king Herald Nix's fine new record What a World, some young punk banjo-picker from Halifax who calls himself Old Man Luedecke at the Main on Thursday (October 14). Still want more? Well then consider pop champions the Gay at Ironworks on Saturday (October 16).
