Hey y’all. After learning about a nearby case of COVID-19 (not at CJTR, thankfully), we are taking extra precautionary measures and staying home to monitor. Likely, everything is cool. We’re just playing it extra safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Follow us on Twitter (@OpManatee) for any updates.

Hey all! Chris is a sick sick bastard, so he’s going to bed long before this show would start. Cory’s using the time to brush up on his Gaelic for next week’s St Paddy’s Day special thing. Tune in next week, barring any Corona Virus-related problems. 🤧
Hey manatees, Chris here. I’m playing with The Lincoln Loggers this Friday. We dress in Buffalo plaid and play songs like ‘Taking The Treeline Down” and Snoop Doggy Dogg’s “Gin and Juice”. Would love it if you came and said ‘Hi.’ The Cure, 2323 11th Ave, Regina Friday, November 8, 9:00 PM FB event.

Sorry, our adoring fans. We’ve decided to take a much needed night off. Let’s blame weather. Let’s blame climate change. Let’s blame the The god Neptune. The important thing is that we don’t blame each other. Til next week… Sleepily, ChrisCoryOperation Manatee
