COWBOY JUNKIES PRESENTS: LATENT LOUNGE OCT 6TH via SIDE DOOR! + “JUST THE NIGHT BIRDS” POETRY BOOK 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SALE
Join us on Wednesday, October 6 at 8pm EST on Sidedoor for a very special return of the Latent Lounge presented by Cowboy Junkies, when we will be streaming a 70 minute pre-recorded acoustic concert featuring five brand new songs that will be on my next studio album. You can purchase tickets for the show here
You’ll also hear 6 new songs by labelmates, Cowboy Junkies (Margo & Michael Timmins) as well as a performance by Townies, a project by Michael Timmins and Andy Maize (of Skydiggers, also on Latent Recordings).
A couple of months ago, as Covid restrictions began to ease, a few of us who record for Latent decided to get together in a funky old converted barn, located about two hours north of Toronto, to share a few of the songs that we had been writing and developing over the past many months in isolation. Andy Maize (Skydiggers) and Michael Timmins (Cowboy Junkies) performed a handful of songs from their Townies project; with my longtime bass player Dan Mock, I performed five acoustic versions of songs that will be on an upcoming studio album; and Margo and Michael of Cowboy Junkies performed six brand new songs that they had been working on at The Barn over the previous few weeks. We brought along a couple of cameras and our recording gear and the result is the latest Latent Lounge, our third in the series. Mike, Andy and myself will be in attendance in the chat so please make sure to say hi!
We have intentionally kept the cost of the ticket for this event very low in hopes that many of you can donate a few more dollars to the “Legacy Of Hope Foundation”. This is a Canadian Indigenous charitable organization with the mandate to educate and create awareness and understanding about the Residential School System. If you can afford it, please pay a little more for your ticket. All money collected by Latent Recordings over the $10 suggested ticket price will be donated to the Legacy of Hope Foundation. Alternately, you can use the Donate link or go directly to the Legacy Of Hope website. www.legacyofhope.ca.
