Along the way, you’ll also see some bank notes specific to the gold rush, tokens good for a variety of human vices and of course, a real nugget of the stuff dreams are made of. Mining the Miners opens on 24 June 2016 and will run until the end of 2017 at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Québec. Located on the lower level, next to the Canadian Stamp Collection.

Red Heaven is a seasoned band of experienced musicians who combine their talents to produce exotic, rich rock tapestries. Weaving post-grunge metal with Turkish, Indian and African motifs, layers of vocal harmonies and dirty, gritty guitar-driven rock… Red Heaven crafted Amplification into a solid, enduring collection of 14 original compositions. Critics call Red Heaven “purely, ethereally beautiful” and “refreshing” with a “killer voice.” From the trance-like opening of Break It In Two to the anvil-hard riff of Infidel, from the dark jazz ostinato of I Guess This Means We’re Through to the atmospheric Graciana, from the unnerving intro of The In-Between to the explosive finale of Push, Amplification never bores, never waits, never draws from the same well twice. Delve into the sonic landscape of Amplification and pick up your copy today.
