Upcoming Solo Performance at The Metro Cinema

Dead Venues July 16 Poster copy I will be performing a couple of songs solo at the upcoming second showing of Eden Munro and Mike Siek’s NTT Films documentary “Dead Venues” at the Metro Cinema in Edmonton on Thursday July 16, 2015. Also performing that evening will be Sherry-Lee Heschel and Bob Prodor.

“Dead Venues” premiered to a packed house for the opening night of this year’s Global Visions Festival on May 8, 2015.

“City landscapes are littered with fallen music venues of every shape and size. Some old buildings still stand tall, bricks cracking, paint peeling more with every year, while others are marked only by the condos that cover their graves. Dead Venues explores the history of several of Edmonton’s shuttered venues and the communities that grew and evolved around them.”

There is live footage of my old band Idyl Tea in the film: first, playing live at The Ambo in March 1987; then performing at The Bronx (now The Starlite Room) for our cd release show in 1990.

The movie begins at 7:00 PM on July 16, 2015 at the Metro Cinema, 8712 109 St, Edmonton, AB T6G 1E9. Live performances occur during the intermission. Tickets available from TicketFly
