The Ghost Bus tour of Animal Nation along with Kyprios (of Sweatshop Union), and MC Lozen will be spinning their hip hop at The Royal this Saturday night.
Animal Nation is from Whistler where The Pique News Magazine called them
“the motley crew of west coast hip hop”. They combine harmonicas, guitars, drum machines, and Bacon & Eggs with turntables, sampling, banjos, and hilarity to create a hip-hop show.
Since being nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Album last year, and playing sold out festivals across the country, the band has released their latest album Don’t Grow Up To Be Like Us with Saskatoonian band Sly Business.
After spending the last three years touring, drinking, singing, laughing and partying together it seemed inevitable that the two bands Animal Nation and Sly Business would join forces and make an album together.
The album captures the essence of what it is to be a group of young touring musicians. Broke, deprived of proper sleep and nutrients, and absolutely loving life to the fullest.

This Saturday night is your chance to see them live right here in Fernie.
