Before becoming a Juno Award-winning international pop sensation, Feist was a part of the Canadian alternative music scene with her Calgary-based punk band Placebo, which won a local Battle of the Bands to earn a spot to open for the Ramones. 

She was also a key member of the musical collective Broken Social Scene.

Feist has since released several solo projects: Let It Die (2004), Open Season (2006), The Reminder (2007), Metals (2011) and this year's Pleasure.

If you want to catch Feist in Calgary at the end of September, there are a couple of tickets left, which can be purchased through Ticketmaster
