Winnipeg’s The Weakerthans will be headlining Webster Hall Tuesday night with Brooklyn’s The Last Town Chorus and Canadian Jim Bryson in the supporting spots. The Weakerthans are of course promoting their just released ANTI-Epitaph record, Reunion Tour, and are in the middle of a tour that will last them well into December.
Last Town Chorus – Modern Love
The Last Town Chorus are a Brooklyn collective fronted by lap steel guitarist and songwriter Megan Hickey. Their most recent release entitled, Wire Waltz (Hacktone), featured a cover of David Bowie‘s Modern Love which was shown on the popular US television program Grey’s Anatomy. Check out the video for Modern Love above.
Ottawa’s Jim Bryson was a founding member of the band Punchbuggy, and currently performs as a solo artist and member of Kathleen Edwards‘s touring band. Among other things, he’ll be playing some songs off his latest record Where the Bungalows Roam (Kelp Records).
