Thanks to all the fans in Banff and Calgary who came out to see us on our first tour of 2012! We always look forward to our time in Alberta, and playing three sold-out shows at the Banff Centre, Fish Creek Concerts and The Nickelodeon was a fantastic way to start the year. After a full month of vacation (Amanda went to Thailand…I went to Fairview Mall), it was a great feeling to step on stage together again.
While out West, we made sure to drop in on our favourite Canadian cafe, the Communitea Cafe in Canmore. The Communitea recently celebrated its 5 year anniversary, and on top of that Marnie the owner just became a new mom! The occasion definitely called for a special Dala gift.
On this tour we also debuted the Dala Loyalty Club cards. Amanda can’t wait to stamp your card. Seriously, I think she’s more excited about using that stamp than she is about our new album.
Loyalty Club Cards will be available at all upcoming Dala shows. Fans will get a stamp from us for every show they attend, with special gifts and membership upgrades as they progress from Bronze (6 shows) to Silver (12 shows) to Gold (18 shows). After that, we find you a new hobby.
To all our friends in Alberta: Stay warm!
p.s. The new album “Best Day” will be released on June 8, 2012. We can’t wait!
