Fun during the floods

Sled Island was cancelled but a flooded city still found time for celebration

Almost as quickly as Sled Island was cancelled house shows started popping up all over town to showcase the bands that had flown or drove in from all over Canada the U.S. and beyond. With nothing to do but wait for the waters to go down Calgarians let off steam and enjoyed the weird freedom of a city in a state of emergency.
