Overall 2008 winner:

To Endangered Ape for putting on amazing shows and revitalizing Southern Alberta’s music scene as well as being a straight up kick ass band. Lethbridge collectively owes you guys a first born. A newer band with some very classic Lethbridge scene maintays, you couldn’t pack more talent into this lo-fi punk rock group. Not that I’m the only one who’s noticed these guys and with two successful tours this year, recording a holiday clasic and getting all the good press a new band could ask for, these guys are going to really blow up Alberta’s music scene.
