K Comp & The Showcase at The Habitat

Our song “Lookin’ All The Time” was selected to be on Kelowna Radio Station K96.3’s first compilation album. There will be a showcase of most of the bands that are going to be on that compilation at The Habitat in Kelowna on Saturday, November 27th. The catch is that the only way to get tickets to see the show is through the radio station or from the bands.
