This Sunday is our beautiful big boy Joshy’s twenty-REDACTEDth birthday, and to celebrate, we’re headlining Empress Comedy! There will be new songs, there will be old songs, there may very well be weird songs. Come celebrate our beautiful boy’s big day!
FOMO YEG is a new variety show featuring music, comedy, magic, and all sorts of other stuff! It also includes a dinner prepared by some of the best chefs in the city. The catch? Only forty tickets to the event will be sold! Success 5000 is thrilled to be a part of the first ever FOMO YEG! Get your tickets before they’re GONE.
Whether you’re in Edmonton or Calgary, you’ve got two chances to catch Success 5000 live this week! Edmontonians can find us at the live taping of Late Night Edmonton on Sunday night, or performing at the outdoor stage of Found Fest on Thursday evening. After that, we’re headed down to Calgary for two Sled Island showcases on Friday and Saturday night at the Grand!
Late Night Edmonton

Two chances to catch Success 5000 live this week: performing a full set at the Folk Lordz Tour Send-Off show (featuring a handful of Edmonton’s best improvists putting on an amazing high-concept long form show) and performing a few choice tunes at the 9th Annual NextFest SMUT Cabaret (where things are bound to get super sexy and SUPER weird). Come on out to Mile Zero Dance on Thursday night for the Folk Lordz show, or hit up Roxy On Gateway on Friday evening for all things smutty. Do you dare come to BOTH SHOWS?? Like, realistically no, because you’ve probably got a life and stuff, but still… MAYBE??
That’s right, nearly a year in the making, the 1997 music video is finally up on YouTube! Check it out below. You can alsostream and/or download two new Success 5000 tracks at our Bandcamp page, including everyone’s new favourite, Grandma!
It’s been a while since we’ve released any new material, so we decided to do it all at once! You can catch the premiere of our new music video for 1997 and the release of our new Grandma EP on Friday, May 20th at The Sewing Machine Factory on Whyte! PLUS we’ll also be recording a live album of all our number one hits! If you’re ever going to check out a Success 5000 show, MAKE IT THIS ONE.
