Tuesday, May 1st:
*** Drawing influence from a vast array of musical references, Sweet Alibi apply a quirky pop sensibility to an eclectic set. Songs range in mood from hauntingly provocative ballads to left of centre takes on everything from Country to old school RnB. Backing their vocals with electric guitars, banjos, hand percussion, ukuleles, upright bass, Sweet Alibi compliment a diverse set with an equally eclectic instrumentation.

***David Newberry sings folk music with rock sensibilities. Or is it the other way around? His increasingly noisy songs provide insights into the complex contemporary social world. His music and performance draws comparisons to energetic, younger Dylan and Springsteen, but his eyes and ears are turned towards the future, constantly aiming to broaden the interpretation of what folk music “sounds like.” His brand new CD “No One Will Remember You” is already garnering rave reviews from musicians and critics alike.

***Common Robin is a secret project of a Vancouver based award-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist T. Nile.
Doors: 8:00 PM. $7
