Go to the Prom with Mark Berube and Erin Lang

One of the acts I’m most looking forward to seeing next week at M for Montreal is the nomadic Mark Berube - he’s playing the M for Martini showcase on Thursday. He may call Montreal home, but he’s traveled the world singing songs, and stock piling anecdotes and observations.

The result is a unique sound built on his spoken word background, accordion and piano prowess and finely tuned travelers eye that are blended together into driving, indie-folk anthems and theatrical live sets filled with surprises and smiles. Whether it’s opening with a heartfelt a cappella version of the South African National anthem or closing it by bringing a thirty-piece volunteer brass band on stage with him in a club that holds roughly the same amount of people, Mark’s love of music translates into a show that leaves you satisfied and often inspired.

If it wasn’t for the other shows at M for Montreal, I’d also be getting gussied up and heading to the Prom with he and Erin Lang. Honestly, how can it NOT be fun? Here are the official deets for anyone hoping to get their Back to the Future on, pick up the phone. IT’S YOUR COUSIN… MARVIN. MARVIN BERRY!
