Calgary Punk Shows works alongside many venues and booking agents to promote local talent, as well as touring Canadian artists in the punk rock genre. They heavily utilize social media outlets to boost exposure for several new acts, announcing tour dates, local show, times and major events that involve our city. They also book local shows themselves that include hard working Canadian acts. They have had the opportunity to speak with international touring musicians and featured these interviews through their podcast. With their podcast, they also blast overseas punk bands not readily heard here. Calgary Punk Shows’ goal is to build the punk rock scene in Calgary and get people out to shows.
