I'm Trying Records, CKUW, and UMFM Present: The I'm Trying Records Showcase I'm Trying Records is an independent record label based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba. While the label may still be in its infancy (being founded in the early months of 2011), the group of young men have acquired an impressive roster of talent. On September 17th, I'm Trying as well as CKUW and UMFM will be presenting a showcase to display this talent. The show will be a great opportunity to see all of the I'm Trying bands at one time, pick up some of their merch, and meet the bands as well as the members of the label. Come down and check out the show. The show will feature: A Waste Odyssey Formed by five young musicians from the rural areas surrounding Selkirk, Manitoba, A Waste Odyssey is a band concerned with writing accessible, hooky songs populated with a level of emotional and lyrical complexity rarely found in pop music. Inspired equally by traditional folk music, modern experimental compositions and simple pop classics, the band has created their own unique brand of rock music that appeals to a wide audience while still treading new ground and exploring exciting musical territory. Little House With a genuine focus on originality, Little House welcomes the unique talent that comes with every musician. Shaped by five close friends, all with different musical backgrounds, Little House’s sound can only be described as “good times." Forming in the spring of 2010, their rapid productivity in songwriting has resulted in a vast repertoire of original songs. Little House is named after a jam space in Matlock, MB where the band writes and records their music. Ask any of the members of Little House what the band is really about, and they will tell you, “Everyone is welcome. That is the number one rule at the Little House.” The band frequently hosts open jams with many musicians and friends. Anyone who wishes to take part in music created at Little House is encouraged to do so. With a captivating, energetic live performance that is possibly the band's greatest attribute, Little House will leave you wanting much more. The Hoots Exciting and always entertaining, this 4 piece band from Selkirk, Manitoba always puts on a great show. The band released their debut EP in March and have since toured Western Canada, taking their unique brand of indie rock on the road. Zoppa Zoppa is a songwriter. Zoppa is a band. Zoppa is a week at home, and Zoppa is a party. Zoppa is brothers jamming. Zoppa is new friends making music. Zoppa is whatever you want it to be, because Zoppa is here for you.
