Happy hour 9-11 ($3.50 drinks)
Kali Yuga, longtime purveyor of auditory excellence, has been slaying dancefloors with her extreme bodacity for many a fortnight. Prepare your orfices for a sonic earblasting the likes of which has ne'er been seen, except for those other totally radsauce shindigs when she done gone laid down dem sweet beats. Yea verily: unto thine earholes shalt be poured pure liquid gold, but not like literally as such would likely maketh thee spake thusly: ouch.
Kali Yuga enjoys cheap wine and dancing to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
The Genesa Project:
Promoting opportunity in various aspects, The Genesa Project strives to showcase rising talent alongside bigger names. Having the opportunity as a young, inspired artist to work with the very source of inspiration can do wonders for motivation and drive. Whatever the medium, be it through music, art, fashion or general ideas, The Genesa Project aims to connect people within the community and make dreams come true.
The Genesa Project is a duo of doers. Based out of Calgary, AB, Canada, the project encompasses a wide range of ideas and ventures, including local event promoting, stage design, music production, and video podcast hosting. Their first local event was held in 2011; a small, intimate venue with a modest turnout. Since then, the project has snowballed, gaining momentum with opportunities to work with and perform at a number of western Canadian music festivals such as Astral Harvest, Motion Notion, Inshala, and FozzyFest. Through their local event series, they have brought artists such as Mr. Bill, Govinda, Defunk, Mochipet, ill-Esha and Starkey to our Calgary based scene. They strive to provide a different kind of sound to our local area; what many might consider to be "out of the box". The goal is to always have multiple live musical elements within each show, including live instrumentals, drums and vocals. As of 2015, they have had the chance to team up with Astral Harvest Music and Arts Festival as their official Calgary promotional affiliate.
Their video podcast project, The Genesa ThoughtLab, kicked off in January, 2016 featuring guests such as Defunk, Longwalkshortdock, Beama Visuals and SkiiTour. With topics and guests ranging from music, local artists, activists, and fellow promoters, they have the ability to present ideas and subjects from an unimaginably broad spectrum of beautiful humans.
The dynamic coupling of The Genesa Project (Tanner Berry) and Kali Yuga combine two unique sounds behind the decks. With high energy and love for the community, they have been making great strides within the Calgary electronic music scene.
