ABOUT BROKEN CITY
On the old Electric Avenue, the rhythm and soul of rock and roll beats on at Broken City. Since opening in 2004, creative Calgarians have found a new home at Broken City, which has dedicated itself to hosting and supporting our diverse, independent arts and entertainment culture. For just under a decade now, we have been Calgary’s foremost home for music and art, a hub for like-minded friends, new and old, to come together underneath one roof to share ideas and moments, develop their visions and help Calgary realize its potential as a vibrant cultural destination. Broken City stands at the centre of it all, a cold tall can of beer always in hand, ready for the next great adventure.
We are proud to host a series of weekly events that capture the heart and imagination of our vibrant city: comedy, punk rock bingo, live music, DJ sets and home-spun karaoke all collide on our dance floor, imitating the cross-pollination for which the Calgary scene is known. Countless touring bands have also graced our stage, coming from all over the continent, Europe and Asia. We are committed to fostering and developing talent from a young age, too, by showcasing all ages matinee shows that are family friendly.
