Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Leave the Radio On
It’s part talk show, part CD launch and part poetry slam. At least it was on opening night.
This fun, quirky, 45-minute offering from Vancouver “accordion power rock” band Proud Animal (Barbara Adler, formerly of the Fugitives, Gavin Youngash and Aaron Klassen) is a different show every night, as well as a live podcast.
One constant is an interview with the band’s “Winnipal” du jour — an interesting local they’ve met since arriving in town. This time it was Lyndon, the barefoot “lifestyle artist” who founded the House Party of Canada.
Besides performing the indie pop-folk tunes off their new self-titled EP, the band will also write a new song for each show based on the audience’s suggestions.

Stories of small town British Columbia, homework, accordion power rock and the world's second or third analogue PowerPoint presentation. When we say "come again," we mean it: every show is different.
