Punch Drunk Cabaret - Live Album Release Party 

Drummer, Sean E Watts began recording nearly every PDC show in 2018-2019. The goal was to simply use the recordings for rehearsal purposes, however, after repeated listens, it was decided that a live, vinyl-only album would make an excellent edition to the PDC catalogue.  The 10 song album was recorded at a number of shows across Alberta, including a show at the Manluk Theatre.  Make sure you are 'in the mix" and join us for the album release party and be the among the first fans to get your hands on this limited edition marbled vinyl recording.
