Burly Calling is back for year #7. An awesome array of great live bands playing all over the city all weekend in a DIY Music Showcase.
After a half dozen years, Burly Calling VII returns to gathers up some fifty artists at six venues over four nights and while it celebrates young new music, this year it also marks the end of the band that began it all (Saint Alvia) .
While Saint Alvia has remained one of the strong headliners over the years, Burly Calling has featured Monster Truck, Walk Off The Earth and dozens of bands with international clout. Fuelling young new talent and in Burlington proper is the mandate but there has also been a strong element of historical celebration. Finger 11, Grade and even Saint Alvia all were once a bunch of teens looking to find anywhere to play in their hometown but in the process found stages around the world and this festival always pays homage to the past that spawned this scene.
This year’s event features five reunions, Somehow Hollow, Gym Class Joke, The Next Best Thing, Rise Over Run, and Jersey all reunite for BCVII.
