That thurr is a pretty self explanatory headline, but this show is kind of a big deal so I am going to add a few extra details. Normally, Superbowl Sunday is filled with black, gold and yellow but since this year it might end up being the Nickelback of Superbowls - you know, generic and terrible but still watched by millions of people - this show at Halifax’s best listening room might be the tonic that cures your (football) ailments.
Postdata - the side project of Wintersleep’s Paul Murphy and his brother (and author) Michael - delivered one of 2010′s best records and since both men are committed to other projects, touring has been held to a minimum. The last show in Halifax, an intimate night with Brian B. and Julie Fader, was incredible and with a rumor of new songs, I can’t think of a better way to spend ten dosh.
Well, unless I tell you that one of Halifax’s most promising young songwriters is going to warm the stage for the Murphy’s. Nick Everett’s debut EP, Old Adventure/Love Songs blew me away on first listen and the young man has pushed boundaries on every project since. He’s muscled up the beautiful folk numbers he first wrote, but the cozy confines of The Carleton might just find him revisiting his softer compositions. Either way, you’ll leave a fan.
