West My Friend

West is a relative concept, I suppose. For people in central Canada, Manitoba is part of the west. But for us, it’s east of here, while Alberta and B.C. are west of Saskatchewan.

The group is composed of Eden Oliver, Alex Rempel, Jeff Poynter and Adam Bailey, and they recently released their second full-length album. They’ll be in town tonight to play a show at the SCES Club that’s being presented by Grassroots Regina (doors at 8 p.m., tickets $15). To give you a taste, here’s video of the band performing their song “Take It Slow”:
