Believe it or not, summer is just around the corner.  You wouldn’t know it from looking outside, but another sure sign is the Calgary Stampede entertainment announcements are coming in at a furious pace!

The Coke Stage just announced their line up and as per usual, it’s a mix of “Cool!”, “Really?”, “Who?” and “Awesome!”

Here’s the bands announced so far:

The Trews, These Kids Wear Crowns, For The Weekend, Marianass Trench, The Dudes, Kevin Costner (yes, that Kevin Costner), State of Shock, Mother Mother, Alyssa Reid, Shawn Desman, Fefe Dobson, Justin Nozuka, Lights, Finger Eleven, Down With Webster, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

Yeah, so that’s quite a mix, eh?  Who would you file under what?  I think Kevin Costner will be pretty cool.  I’m also kinda groovin’ on Justin Nozuka and Lights too.  The Trews are always pretty sweet and as the sole maritime band, they are my best bet at getting someone to bring me out a McLobster this summer.

If you weren’t planning on going to the Calgary Stampede this year, will you now?
