Cable Street

 Calgary, Alberta, CAN
BandAlternativeRock

Hailing from southern Alberta, Adam (vocals), Mat (Bass), Eric (guitars), and Dan (drums and percussion) rallied in 2011 to take a stand against music that was getting louder, dumber and more repetitive. With lyrics that make you think and beats that make you move, Cable Street has been shaking things up in Canada’s alternative scene where they’ve been referred to as “local favourites”, and “the next Killers, but with better vocals”.

Biography

They think we’re simple. Complacent. From their leather backed chairs they spoon feed us the same derivative bullshit and expect us to beg for more. Image consultants turn naïve new artists into roadside freak shows to cover up the fact that you’ve heard this song before. It’s time for us to change that. 

Cable Street is forcing back the march of the music industry fascists that demand conformity and market value over expression. 

“To music execs, talent is a commodity,” says Mat, bassist. “To be discarded for the next shiny thing.” 

“We’re in it for the music,” says Adam, vocals. “And putting on a great fucking show”.

The band was recently nominated for 2017 Rock Recording of the Year and is looking forward to ripping it up in the '6 for Indie Week Canada 2017.
