The Weekend Kids

Everybody might be working for the weekend, but Edmonton pop-punkers The Weekend Kids are working longer and harder than anyone else on the weekend. The band has spent plenty of weekends playing shows, recording albums and going on tour in order to spread its message far and wide.

With a blend of early pop punk melodies and post punk/hardcore grit urgency, the band has built a strong foundation and community in their hometown through DIY ethics and persistence. The band recorded and produced their first full length 'Of Friends and Foes' (2010), which earned them the 'best single' award at the Edmonton Music Awards, and their most recent EP 'Run This Town' (2011), as well as designed their own merchandise, and planned their Canada wide tour. The Weekend Kids prove that DIY does pay off. They've even started directing and producing their own music videos, which can be seen on their youtube channel at

"These guys blend technical guitar work with plenty of sing along opportunities." - Dustin Blumhagen (
