Description: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
EARLY SHOW! 7pm doors, music begins at 8pm. $10 or PWYC.

Canadian author and former Sunriser frontman Darryl Webster (aka OLD KID) performs a special acoustic show to celebrate the release of his new EP "This Echo" on Hamilton indie record label Maisonneuve Music (http://maisonneuvemusic.com/artists/old-kid/)

A departure from the sparse acoustic tone of his last release (OLD KID, 2010), This Echo resurrects the singer/songwriter's indie rock roots. Electronic undercurrents run beneath hypnotic, lilting guitars in "Yorkshire Lady." The restless, expectant energy of "OK, Okay" dissolves into a wash of resonating guitars and synths.

"[This Echo] is more than just okay — it's deep, soulful and moody..." —David Mooney, 104.9 Imagine FM (Manchester, UK)

The release of This Echo follows Darryl's recent 70,000-km trip around the globe, and the book he wrote to chronicle his journey. Released by Pitch Publishing in November 2014, "Pride in Travel: A Title-Winning Season Exploring the World of Manchester City" is a captivating exploration of local culture and sport, set against the author's journey towards self-discovery.

This Echo is a musical snapshot of one Canadian musician's evolution from indie rocker to incisive storyteller.

Featuring opening sets by singer/songwriter Paul Federici (http://www.paulfederici.ca/) and instrumental guitarist Emilio Bonito (http://emiliobonito.com/).
