Michael Bernard Fitzgerald w/ Altameda, McGowan Family Band & Guests
Sunday, October 9, 2016
Altameda is a four-piece alt-country band from Edmonton, combining the country drawl of Gram Parsons with the raw alt aesthetic of The Replacements. With all members (Jasper Smith, Todd Andrews, Erik Grice, and Troy Snaterse) coming in with roots in various genres, their sound perfectly blends the sincerity of classic Americana with new grit. With a twangy, heartfelt alt-country edge, with big drums leading the way for soaring pedal steel lines, and a quiet discontent filling the space between every lyric, Altameda are sure to both surprise and satisfy.
