So this coming Thursday, Calgary get ready – Lightning Dust will be touching down on their recent tour with a stop at Broken City. The Jagjaguwar recording duo is in Wildrose Country for a couple of shows (May 5th in Edmonton at the Pawn Shop with May 6th being the Calgary show). It has been a while since I last listened to their self titled album that released back in 2007. With discovering the Vancouver gothic folksters coming to my side of the Rockies, I took another listen and it still has what first caught me. It has the all the lamenting background of country seance, but with keyboards.
They are expecting a new album from Jagjaguwar this summer/fall which is a good thing – you know us “indie bloggers” loose focus after a while… Seriously, should be a great show this Thursday and the fact that they are bringing along another Vancouver talent in the form of Slowcoustic favourite Jon-Rae Fletcher should elevate this great concert into the stratosphere (check out my post over on You Crazy Dreamers for some Jon-Rae, here and here). So, kids, where are you going to be this Thursday….Broken City – show starts at 8:00pm!
p.s. For all you non-Albertans, you can also check out the tour as it crosses off more destinations across Canada and the US with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Cotton Jones. Dates are available on their MySpace page and Label page. Do not forget to visit their own website while you are at it.
