Radio songs, concert shows…

It’s been a long time coming, but tonight, if you tune your radio (or, through the magic of the internet, your computer) to CBC Radio 2 for The Signal between 10pm and 12 you’ll be the first to hear something brand new from Paper Beat Scissors!

For the next little while you’ll also have the chance to get ahold of that track on a sampler exclusively available at the upcoming shows below…

April 15 – Toronto, ON: Burdock, 1184 Bloor St. West // Tickets (presented by Burdock)
April 16 – Montreal, PQ: Casa Del Popolo // Tickets/Billets (presented by Passovah)

Interstellar Space Band

For the Montreal and Toronto shows I’m going to be joined by an amazing band comprised of Leif Vollebekk, Gregory Burton, Patrick Latreille, and Stef Schneider & Pietro Amato (the Luyas/Bell Orchestre).  You should probably come.

The Maritimes in May

There’ll be a short jaunt around the Maritimes in the middle of May, where I’ll be playing alongside Maine’s Jacob Augustine, my former housemate Catherine MacLellan, and my present favourite band in this particular universe Bing & Ruth.  You should probably come.

Wolfville (tomorrow) to Upper Canada

Hello peoples,

This missive shall be brief.  I wanted to let you know about some Canadian shows coming up (starting tomorrow in Wolfville) and running into April, and to give a forewarning to expect a long-overdue announcement relating to the new album in just a couple of weeks!  Oh, and finally I should let you know that a good friend will be the special guest on Q on CBC Radio tomorrow morning!  More on all of this below…

Wolfville Acadia Chapel Show Tomorrow Night

In spite of living in the vicinity for a decade, I’ve yet to have the pleasure of playing in Wolfville.  Thanks to Axe Radio the time has finally come with a very special last-minute show happening tomorrow, Friday 27th March at the beautiful Acadia Chapel.  The show starts at 8pm, and $8 will get you in the door and some pew space.

Friday 27th March
Wolfville, Acadia Chapel

Upper Canada Shows in April

After way too long a wait (going on two years?!?!) I’ll be heading back up to Quebec and Ontario to play as part of the Forward Music Revue alongside label chums Gianna Lauren, Find the Others and (in Ottawa only) Michael Feuerstack.  For the Montreal and Toronto shows I’ll be accompanied by Leif Vollebekk, Gregory Burton, as well as Stefan Schneider and Pietro Amato from the Luyas and Bell Orchestre.  Needless to say, it will probs be a fun time…

PBS Producer and Collaborator Michael Feuerstack on CBC Radio Q tomorrow morning!

Michael Feuerstack (better known to many as Snailhouse) produced and played on the eponymous Paper Beat Scissors album.  He recently released the magnificent album the Forgettable Truth and he’ll be playing some tracks from that album and putting his words in your ears tomorrow morning on Q from 10am in Canada (10.30 in Newfoundland).  For those overseas, or who can’t listen at the time there are many other opportunities to listen.

Quebec and Ontario shows this April!

I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 years since I played in the wilds of Upper Canada. Next month will change all that with 4 shows in Quebec and Ontario as part of the Forward Music Revue, which will feature labelmates Gianna Lauren and (new addition), Find the Others.  Montreal and Toronto shows will feature an all-star band (watch this space).  The Ottawa show, presented by Arboretum Festival, taking place at the beautiful St. Alban’s Church will also feature PBS producer and Canadian indie legend Michael Feuerstack

Fantasies and Theremins and Violins

A belated happy new year!

So, I thought I was going to be having a quiet January, but some rumbles have grown into plans and I’m playing four (very different) shows across the Maritimes this weekend: opening for old mr. “Final Fantasy” himself – Owen Pallett, playing the theremin for 2 dance performances and performing arrangements of PBS tunes with a symphony orchestra!
