Presented at the Heritage Amphitheatre in Hawrelak Park, Edmonton, on the weekend of July 26-28, Interstellar Rodeo 2013 welcomes a host of musical mavericks, outlaws and rogues of all stripes (and even a few nice and quiet law-abiding folks), including Alabama Shakes, Steve Earle and the Dukes, M. Ward, and more. Kicking off the festival is legendary Edmonton band Jr. Gone Wild, who announced their reunion just in time to be added to the bill. Six Shooterers Danny Michel (with the Garifuna Collective), the Deep Dark Woods, the Good Lovelies, and former Six Shooterers Elliott BROOD have joined the party, as well as local heroes and long time friends Shout Out Out Out Out. Our pals Serena Ryder, Sarah Harmer, the Skydiggers, CR Avery, and Mike Plume, as well as accolade soaked American up-and-comers Kurt Vile and John Fullbright, are all making the glorious pilgrimage to Edmonton, guaranteeing a weekend packed full of stellar tune-age! We are crazy passionate about our flagship festival, and believe me, we have put a lot of thought and effort into carefully selecting artists who blaze their own trails, defy expectations and make music that transcends genres. We want the Interstellar Rodeo to be the best, most memorable festival experience for you, our wonderful music loving fans!

Driven by the blissful glee of how awesome last year’s festival was, we are focused on making Interstellar Rodeo even better! To that end, we are adding two new musical features this year! First up, the Interstellar All-Stars (Sunday, July 28), is a one-day-only “songwriter supergroup” (complete with a fully rocking all-star backing band) featuring Jim Cuddy, Danny Michel and Quique Escamilla. The All-Stars idea grew out of a recent showcase presented by the Americana Music Festival, where these three distinct artists learned each other’s songs and put on such a wicked awesome show that we had to cop the idea ask them to do it again. The Interstellar All-Stars is Six Shooter’s spin on the classic workshop concept.

The second new feature is motivated by our desire to present as many artists as we can in one weekend, on only one stage. Interstellar Rodeo 2013 introduces the Interludes, short sets spotlighting a collection of incredible singer-songwriters. This year’s Interludes performers are Amelia Curran, Del Barber and Rachel Sermanni. In all, 23 artists will grace the Interstellar stage. Did any of you see that psychological thriller starring Jim Carrey called The Number 23? Yeah, me neither, but I’m sure cramming 23 artists onto our stage will be both psychological and thrilling!

We really have to take a moment here to give our sincerest thanks to our returning patrons, volunteers, and sponsors. It is so tremendously uplifting and exciting to see our festival grow and to have the opportunity to bring more amazing music to more amazing people! Together, along with newcomers to this year’s festivities, we’ll make Interstellar Rodeo 2013 a weekend to remember.

We can finally use the phrase, “This ain’t our first rodeo” when it comes to our summer festival presented by Six Shooter in Edmonton, AB! I mean, we already using that phrase for many other things, like ordering breakfast, operating a juicer, taking public transit, negotiating with terrorists, entering a sheep shearing contest, building a competitive battle robot, giving the Biebs a piggy-back ride, wearing swim goggles while chopping onions, operating a Zamboni, going to an actual rodeo, sabre fencing, that kind of stuff. BUT, specifically in reference to our totally amazing summer music festival in Edmonton, AB, NOW is the time for us to use said phrase!! So here we go, this ain’t our first (Interstellar) rodeo! The line up for Interstellar Rodeo 2013 will be announced on Tuesday! You have a nice long weekend to prepare yourself for the announcement, and then BLAMMO, we gonna hit you with a truth bomb! We are really, extremely, hella stoked about the amazing artists we have coming to Edmonton this summer, and we know you will be too! Tickets go on sale to the public on Saturday, April 6, and will be available through our webstore at www.sixshooterrecords.com, and also in person (in Edmonton) through Blackbyrd Myoozik and Permanent Records.

For those who attended last year, you will be able to get in on the pre-sale happening between April 3-5. In order to qualify, you need to create a log in on our new webstore (go to www.sixshooterrecords.com, click “store”, and then click “log in” on the top right corner). When you’re filling out the form, click the button that says “I went to Interstellar Rodeo 2012.” Please note: being on this email list does not mean you are automatically on our new webstore system. The two are separate systems. One of them is the email list system, the other is the new webstore system. Systems. Not the same. Syyyyyssssteeeem-mm-m-m-m-s. *bloop*

The festival dates this year are July 26-28, and it will once again be hosted at the lovely William Hawrelak Park amphitheatre, and the vibes will once again be glorious.

We really can’t overstate how excited we are for the return of our festival! The inaugural edition of Interstellar Rodeo was so much fun, and the overwhelmingly fantastic response we got from those who attended last year has been truly inspiring. We can’t wait to saddle up and do it even better for you all this time around! Yaaa!

Interstellar Rodeo Returns!

Interstellar Rodeo returns for its sophomore year with a big name at the top of the 2013 bill. The Alabama Shakes, purveyors of raucous southern soul powered by the force of nature that is lead singer Brittany Howard, are confirmed to play Interstellar Rodeo’s stage this year. The band’s acclaimed debut album, Boys & Girls, included “Hold On,” named Rolling Stone’s Best Song of 2012. With multiple Grammy nominations already to their name, this relatively young band’s meteoric rise is built on knockout performances and true blue talent. Interstellar Rodeo is excited to announce the Alabama Shakes as one of this year’s headliners.

See the Alabama Shakes perform the tune on Saturday Night Live

Stay tuned for Interstellar Rodeo’s full musical lineup announcement later this month. The festival takes place in Edmonton’s beautiful Hawrelak Park, July 26-28, 2013.

Interstellar Rodeo Advance Presale Details

If you went to Interstellar Rodeo last year and want to make sure you get first dibs on tickets for 2013, then you’ll need to pre-register for the pre-sale (if you haven’t done this already). Our webstore, located at www.sixshooterrecords.com has a new system. You’ll need to create an account (sorry, I know we have your email address here and all, but we couldn’t afford the IT bill that it would have taken to integrate the two systems). When you create your account (by hitting the little “login” button on the top right), click the box “I attended Interstellar Rodeo 2012.” Watch for the line up and ticket announcement in March!

Interstellar Rodeo

One of the clearest points of feedback we received from our audience was around 400 Hz when that one dude bum rushed the mic. Just kidding, that didn’t happen, I just wanted to make a lil’ joke for our soundguy readership (whazzup nerds?!). But really though, I want to talk about the other kind of feedback. Thanks so much to those of you who filled out a survey for us, and let us know that a top priority is to figure out a way to guarantee ticket availability for returning patrons (we love you for wanting to be returning patrons, btw! You da best!). We’ve been working on how to incorporate this into the new web store we just launched (Sneak attack! New web store! Check it!). If you went to the Interstellar Rodeo last year and want to get first dibs on tickets for 2013, please go to (our webstore) and log in to our new system, click the “yes” button next to the statement, “I went to Interstellar Rodeo 2012.” If you weren’t there and you lie, we will totally catch you and publicly shame you, but we probably wouldn’t want to…what we really want is a lot of people having a great time in Hawrelak Park next summer. Anyway, when we announce the line up in March, 2013, you will be given 3 days to make your purchase before we release tickets to the general public. Sound like a deal?

Meanwhile, we’ve also received a bunch of requests from people asking if they can purchase early bird passes for holiday gifts. Hey, good idea! You are such thoughtful gift givers! We don’t have our line up ready to be announced juuuust yet, so we’re putting on a “Have a Little Faith In Me” Rodeo Christmas special where a limited number of weekend passes will be made available for sale through our brand new web store for the low price of $139 ($99 for youth/senior). These will be available while quantities last. Give the gift of exclusivity, and you will surely be rewarded with smooches. Please note: you don’t have to purchase the Christmas special to have your name reserved for the pre-sale in March.

Have a Little Faith in me Rodeo Christmas Special

We’ve received a bunch of requests from folks asking if they can purchase early bird passes for holiday gifts.

These will be available while quantities last.

This pre-sale will begin in March once the line up is announced but before tickets are made available to the general public.

The Interstellar Rodeo was Awesome

Well, the Interstellar Rodeo was just awesome. Straight up, it was an amazing weekend. Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful feedback on our inaugural year. We loved reading through all the audience surveys, emails, facebook posts and random hugs where we learned how much you loved the music, the wine, the beer, the weather, the food, and the vibe. Thank you to the artists who brought the house down, set after set.

Thank you so much to our sponsors (FACTOR, The Edmonton Journal, Big Rock Brewery, CKUA, Lite/Hot, The Westin, and Steinway). Also, a thousand shout outs to our fabulous volunteers. And, most of all, thanks to the people who came out to the show!! We’re gearing up to do it all again next year! For those returning patrons coming next year, we are working on a way for you to be able to renew your tickets. Stay tuned to this newsletter for more details as soon as we have them (and please tell your concert-going friends to sign up through the Six Shooter Records website). Edmonton! We did it!

P.S. Anyone still wanting an iRodeo t-shirt may order through the Six Shooter Records webstore. We have some smalls and mediums left in both men’s and women’s styles.
