Montreal-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Watson graces the Ballroom stage with music that is at once subtle and dramatic; full of atmospheric tension and anchored by his stunning and hypnotic falsetto. Winner of the Polaris Prize for his beautiful and fragile debut record, Close to Paradise, Patrick Watson continues to transport listeners with his vast emotional depths and compelling sonic drift on his latest release, Love Songs for Robots. Watson says he wanted it to be a “science fiction R&B meets Vangelis erotica with a zest of folk kind-of-record.” The result is layers of instrumentation, sonic baubles, restless percussion, and reverb-heavy guitars.

The Westerlies (“prevailing winds from the West to the East”) are a Brooklyn/NYC-based brass quartet comprised of four childhood friends from Seattle that explore jazz, roots, and chamber music influences to create music that is both “folk-like and composerly, lovely and intellectually rigorous” (NPR Music). Equally at home in concert halls and living rooms, The Westerlies deliver the precision of a string quartet, the audacity of a rock band, and the charm of a family sing-along.

We do expect advanced tickets to sell out for this show; a very limited amount of tickets will be available for purchase at the door.
