Sloan "One Chord to Another" 20th anniversary tourTuesday, October 11 20167:30pmOpening doors time / heure d’ouverture des portes6:30pmBuyMembers $36 | Regular $39With over 25 years’ worth of music to sift through, it may be hard to pick a favourite Sloan album. If, however, you're a massive fan of the Canadian pop rock project's 1996 LP, One Chord to Another, you're in for a treat.Read more...
Sloan will play two sets, with a full-album performance of One Chord to Another preceding a more general set of "hits and fan favourites."
One Chord to Another was written by Sloan in 1995 during a time at which many believed the band had been broken up. It followed their two-album stint with DGC Records and was released in Canada through the group’s Murderecords in 1996. Since-shuttered indie imprint the Enclave handled the U.S. release in 1997.
Album stand-outs include the hard garage bop of "The Good in Everyone," horn-blaring pop piece "Everything You've Done Wrong," and Ferguson's knock-out gorgeous, Ringo Starr-saluting masterpiece, "The Lines You Amend."

Tanya Tagaq AnimismWednesday, October 19 20167:30pmOpening doors time / heure d’ouverture des portes6:30pmBuyMembers $32 | Regular $352014 Polaris Music Prize winner Tanya Tagaq comes to the Capitol to perform Animism, her latest work. Often called a masterpiece, the album has gained major acclaim throughout Canada. The innovation on Animism is an argument not for moving beyond, but for putting more emphasis on the value and necessity of the traditions. The rootedness is where the newness of the record comes from. That will not be a contradiction for you, if you listen properly.Read more...
Animism seamlessly uses the technology of the digital recording studio to make an encyclopedic argument for the natural world. In fact, it will erase from your mind the notion of human artifice and nature as opposites. If you listen.
If you listen, you will careen through a panorama of the contradictions of existence. You can hear the living land, and the land under assault. You can hear children being born and conceived. You can hear the torture of the innocent, and the glory of the tenacious, unstoppable force of life. If you listen you can actually hear the sound of a people defying genocide to rise, wounded but alive, strong, and ready to fight.
There is no artist working today more emphatically herself, more incomparable than Tagaq. There is no musician in this world more powerful. Animism is the album that finally translates her unique power to the recording studio.
An accomplished vocalist, Tanya Tagaq is sure to expand your horizons and wishes to bring you along with her on the journey that is Animism.
The Barr Brothers Opening act : Laura SauvageThursday, October 20 20167:30pmOpening doors time / heure d’ouverture des portes6:30pmBuyMembers $24.50 | Reg. $26.50The Barr BrothersRead more...
Brad Barr and Sarah Pagé meet when Sarah’s harp-playing drifts through the thin walls separating their two apartments. He is inspired and attempts to learn her music through drywall. They meet and become friends. Sarah, an experimental harpist, had been playing with various orchestras and performing with the esteemed singer Lhasa de Sela. Brad, a recent transplant from the US, had played for years with his brother Andrew in the Providence/Boston-based band The Slip. He had followed Andrew to Montreal after a fire in a Montreal club they were playing sparked a romance that took them over the border. The two brothers and Sarah began playing and recording together in their makeshift studio, ultimately producing their debut record, The Barr Brothers, “...a dusty journal of hushed Americana, West African grooves, and voyeuristic lyrics, rich with artifacts...”.
The idea for a solo project came to Vivanne Roy during the last three years on the road with Les Hay Babies. The band was garnering success wherever they went; winning Les Francouvertes in Montreal in 2013, getting instant fans in France, Switzerland, Germany and Belgium on three consecutive tours, receiving multiple East Coast Music Award nominations and winning the French Songwriter of the Year award at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. The fact that she had no deep roots anywhere, travelling from hotel room to hotel room in often unfamiliar cities, inspired new songs. Thus was born Vivianne’s solo project, Laura Sauvage.

Hey Rosetta!Sunday, October 23 20168pmOpening doors time / heure d’ouverture des portes7pmBuy39.50
Presale from May 25th 10am until May 26th 6pm
Public on sale May 27th at 10am
SECOND SIGHT, Hey Rosetta!’s first album in nearly four years represents the
longest musical gestation in the band’s history. In part, the delay was due to
the lengthy touring cycle following the success of their last album Seeds, which
was short-listed for the Polaris Music Prize, and resulted in the band’s first JUNO
nomination and a performance on the JUNO telecast. There was also the
band’s determination to expand their sonic horizons and, as songwriter Tim
Baker puts it, “let each song come on its own terms and become what it will,
unencumbered by some predetermined structure or symbolism or thesis.”
So when the band started recording at Montreal’s MixArt studio in late 2013
with producer Marcus Paquin (The National, Stars, Local Natives, Arcade Fire)
SECOND SIGHT began as a long list of these new songs with "no real concept,
no over-arching theme to the work,” says Baker. “We had enough songs for an
album – but what was the album about? What were we trying to say as artists?
How did these songs relate to one another?”
As the session progressed, things got clearer, but another familiar hurdle
arose, “We didn’t have a single, which seems a perennial problem for us.
We’ve never really had a single, but boy do people want one” Baker says. “At
first we kicked against it, but then, eventually saw it as a challenge.” A second
studio session was booked at MixArt from which “Kintsukuroi” emerged. It’s a
song about real, broken, messy love, the title drawn from the Japanese art of
mending broken pottery with gold, thus producing a new object of beauty
with flaws highlighted instead of hidden – the idea being, that the object is
actually more beautiful for having been broken.
SECOND SIGHT would also experience a rebirth – a re-breaking and the
album’s vital lyrical connective tissue would reassemble to clearly define the
common threads in Baker’s lyrics.
“I’d been thinking about potential, about the great promise within all of us that
we never seem to fully realize. And as an artist, I'd been fixating on how to get
there. Which led to another of the album's main themes: this idea of shifting
your vision slightly – moving away from your everyday, rational, denotative, leftbrain
way of seeing the world and embracing a more suggestive, intuitive,
animalistic and ultimately more interesting ‘second sight’.”
You hear it in the lyrics to “Soft Offering (For the Oft Suffering)”. The song, Baker
explains, “is all about morning coming to tear down the vision that the sweet,
irresponsible, unscheduled hours of the night provides.”
Opening act : HANNAH GEORGAS
Light dancing with shadow, fingers finding answers in the expanse of a keyboard, a
voice that shimmers even in its most shattering moments—this is the power of
acclaimed pop singer-songwriter Hannah Georgas. Over two full-length albums, 2010’s
This is Good and 2012’s self-titled follow-up, she’s traversed a carefully constructed
soundscape that never fails to surprise. Georgas has an endless capacity for crafting
textured pop songs that confound expectation. She’s as likely to layer luminous,
devastating, and witty as she is upbeat, broken, and defiant. This is what makes her
music, even at its simplest, so transfixing, something that’s never more evident than on
Georgas’ forthcoming release, For Evelyn.
