DEATH VALLEY GIRLS :

For nearly a decade, Death Valley Girls have made it their mission to remind the punks, psych rockers, garage aficionados, and desert mystics of the communal, transcendental, and triumphant power of music, as evidenced most recently in the riotous affirmations of their 2022 track “When I’m Free.” The song fuses Bonnie Bloomgarden’s passionate vocals, Larry Schemel’s anthemic guitar chords, rousing sing-along choruses, and feverish organ lines into a perfect three-minute shot of adrenaline and dopamine. Despite the old-school nature of their instrumentation, Death Valley Girls are well aware of the revolutionary power of the dance floor, so they approached one of their heroes to help re-envision “When I’m Free” for the club crowd. What better way to reinforce in the liberating spirit of the song than to give it to Peaches—an artist who continues to push boundaries in a career that spans over two decades, and who has helped so many people navigate sexuality, gender, identity, and being comfortable in one’s body in the new millennium. Under Peaches’ meticulous care, “When I’m Free” transforms from a scrappy rock song to a throbbing, minimalist club banger. The musical key switches from major to minor, taking the song from celebratory mode into a leaner and meaner message of empowerment. Bloomgarden’s impassioned vocals remain in place along with a few organ glissandos, though the rest of the original is excised in favor of stark four-on-the-floor beats and pulsing synth bass. The sound may prompt a different type of gyration than the original, but the spirit of freedom and revelry remains and takes on a whole new angle under Peaches’ masterful manipulations. Suicide Squeeze is proud to present the Peaches remix of Death Valley Girls’ “When I’m Free” in Spring 2022.

    Purple City Music Festival is pleased to announce its full 2022 artist lineup! Between August 26 - 28th, Edmonton will host 80+ Artists in nine venues across the city. 

    Daytime programming will be located in Hawrelak Park, with evening performances taking place at historic Edmonton venues including The Starlite Room, Garneau Theater (Metro Cinema) and The Freemason’s Hall. 

    This year's Hawrelak Headliners will feature Brooklyn based and self-proclaimed dance punks !!! ( Chk, Chk, Chk ) electrifying the dancefloors of the covered amphitheater on Saturday. Oakland garage rock revivalists  Shannon & The Clams will close the outdoor stage Sunday with their own brand of psychedelic surf punk. 

    Hawrelak will also feature a secondary dance stage called the  Purple City Picnic. This stage will be curated by local tastemakers Night Vision and female-focused Collective Dollhaus Events.

    Kicking off the evening shows for the festival Friday will be a special, all-ages performance hosted by Metro Cinema from the first-ever champion of Canada’s Drag Race, Priyanka. Friday will also see the ecstatic, chaos-and-stimulation overload that is NYC’s noise rockers A Place To Bury Strangers at The Starlite Room. 

    Saturday will keep the party going with the Grunge inspired heaviness of Toronto buzz band Dilly Dally at the Freemasons Hall. Saturday will also feature San Francisco dream-pop staples Papercuts at Starlite

    Closing things out Sunday, The Freemason Hall will reverberate with the sound of California psyche rock troupe Death Valley Girls. Starlite will host a two-room, post-punk showcase featuring a headlining performance by L.A. goth rocker Glaare.

    Wristbands and Day Passes will be available Saturday, April 23, at 12 p.m. MST. Individual tickets go on sale Friday, April 29, 12 p.m. MST.
