They're joined by Chanelle, one of their collaborators when they perform and record on this side of the border. They talk about touring, finding their sound, Santiago's former gig as a Winnipeg-based Buddy Holly impersonator (for real!), plus they perform three songs live! This episode brought to you by our friends at the Park Theatre, who are presenting '[Buffy Prom](http://www.facebook.com/events/222171375002264/)' on June 17! It's a fully-themed Buffy the Vampire Slayer prom/dance party featuring DJ K Chedda and awesome '90s music, plus a costume contest and door prizes.

WR357: Jaime Carrasco

[Jaime Carrasco](http://soundcloud.com/bluecaixa70) is a local drummer who has been an important member of the Winnipeg music scene dating back to the '90s. I first became aware of Jaime because of his work with [the Keith Price Double Quartet](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3544210612b466L/) – whose album was my favourite local release of 2017. Carrasco's music, however, expands well beyond the jazz realm, as his current gig with the Leftists demonstrates (haha). We talk about all of it and more! This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/) and by [Demedash Effects](http://www.demedasheffects.com/), a local company that makes hand-made guitar effect pedals like the glorious T-120 Videotape Echo.
