 It is punk night in Coaldale with Calgary punks the Motherfuckwers performing with local punks  the Scallywags and the Dregs

The Motherfuckers http://www.motherfuckerscalgary.com/shows.html

The Motherfuckers originally formed in 1998, with Sean Hunter on guitar, Roger Nilson on bass, Tim Bastard on drums, and Dan Izzo on vocals.
Hunter, Roger and Tim had already been jamming together for some time, but hadn't managed to find a singer.
Sometime in the Spring of 1998 Dan Izzo was brought in. Hunter suggested Dan about six months earlier (and has Tim as a witness to this...) but Roger was against it at the time, then forgot all about it until he thought he'd had the brilliant idea of getting Dan.
There was much rolling of eyes between Hunter and Tim on that day. Izzo was too scared to notice. These guys were OLD. and GRUMPY.
Nonetheless, the band started to come together, united by their lack of talent, and such notable songs as "Ode to Beer", "Jerk Around Queen", "E.M.O." and "Punk Like Skabby" were written in this time period.
Soon after, rumors of a show ran rampant, but it wasn't until Boxing Day 1998 that the band finally played its first show.
A few names had been tossed around, the most memorable being "Inside Joke" ("AND THE ALBUM COVER IS A PICTURE OF A PROSTATE!!!" Hunter cackled as he suggested it), and "The Butcher Boys."
Dan had jokingly suggested "Rowdy Roger and the Motherfuckers", and, unfortunately, had also started telling everyone who would listen that that was the name of the band. By the time the band played their first show on Boxing Day 1998, the name had stuck, and there was no turning back.
The original incarnation of the band only played 4 shows - two all-ages shows in Calgary and shows in Edmonton and Invermere,BC with Knucklehead.
During this time, Roger became the bass player of Field Day, and became increasingly unpleasant to be around, and disinterested in the band.
"Rowdy Roger and the Motherfuckers" fifth, and last, show was on May 22, 1999, the band's second show in Invermere. At the last minute, Roger decided he couldn't go, and Matt Young of Knucklehead was brought in to replace him.
