The Strumbellas @ Big Four Roadhouse
Nov 24 all-day

The Canadian Legacy Project, a charity dedicated to supporting our veterans in need;  will be presenting The Strumbellas on November 24th at the newly renovated Big Four Roadhouse at the Stamped grounds.

That journey has been a whirlwind since the release of the band’s 2012 debut album My Father And The Hunter. The Strumbellas’ sound — haunting lyrics fused with infectious, danceable melodies — won them both fans and critical recognition. A year later, they followed up with We Still Move On Dance Floors, which earned the band six awards, including a JUNO and Sirius XM Indie Award, as well as a spot on the Polaris Music Prize Long List. And of course, there’s been touring. Lots of touring. Catch them in Calgary! Purchase tickets now.

Over the past three decades, Alec Baldwin has established himself as one of Hollywood’s most gifted, hilarious, and controversial leading men. For his work in the role of Jack Donaghy on Tina Fey’s irreverent series 30 Rock, he won two Emmys, three Golden Globes, and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards.

In his new memoir Nevertheless, Baldwin transcends his public persona, opening up about facets of his life he has long kept private. Told with his signature candor, savvy, and wit, Nevertheless reveals an Alec Baldwin we have never fully seen before.
