Vancougar Announce CMJ Show at Fat Baby (Mint Records)

Vancougar Announce CMJ Show at Fat BabyVancouver's Vancougar have announced a CMJ show at Fat Baby on October 24th. The band signed to Mint Records earlier this year (home to The Pack A.D.) and are touring behind their debut disc Canadian Tuxedo.

Comparisons to Sleater-Kinney seem to get thrown at every female-fronted band but, this time, I can the basis for the comparison. Vancougar's music falls somewhere between later-day Sleater-Kinney and a hypothetical garage-rock band fronted by Belinda Carlisle. Check out "Obvious" from Canadian Tuxedo.
