Animal Nation

Animal Nation is a band that found Canada-wide exposure by both being cast in supporting roles in MTV’s Peak Season as well as licensing several songs

to the show.

The show later went on to be picked up by VH1 in the US as well as airing on MTV networks in 145 countries worldwide.

Their latest release has been charting near the top of nation-wide college hip-hop

Charts and their latest music video (self directed/shot/edited) was also featured in the 2011 Whistler Film Festival in the shortworks Film Maker Showdown, and was nominated for the Shortworks Award.

Their style is laid-back, west coast indie hip-hop and they say that they

place well with fans of hip-hop, indie-rock, folk, or even punk.

The band is fronted by two MCs- Mike Armitage (Armadillo Slim) is on

vocals as well as the decks and Garnet Clare (Tall Man) adds keys,

harmonica, banjo, live percussion and other unique musical elements to

their show. They also have a rotating cast of other players and talkers.

“Even though our sound is laid back we are masters at getting people

into the show with our witty banter and on-stage antics,” said Clare. “We have

opened for the likes of Classified, Jully Black, Zion I, Hilltop

Hoods, Sweatshop Union, Blackalicious and Buck 65 and have performed

at several major festivals including the 2010 Winter Olympics (official

Village mainstage), Telus, Crankworx, Pemberton Music Festival,

Shambala and Canada Day on Parliament Hill.”

Animal Nation will take to the stage at The Northern in Fernie on Saturday, May 26.
