In The Future...Weakerthans' Quadrilogy of Shows; Josh Ritter @ The WECC; And More!

>> Sunday, 4 July 2010

Embracing a growing and highly exciting trend in the music biz, Winnipeg folk-rock demi-gods The Weakerthans are scheduled to play four albums over four nights in December. But there’s a very cool twist: they’re changing up the venue each evening.

First up, John K. & the boys run through Fallow at the Albert on December 15th.

Next, the hometown heroes lay down Left & Leaving at the West End Cultural Centre on December 16th.

December 17th sees them perform Reconstruction Site at the Pyramid

Finally, they complete the trilogy by showcasing Reunion Tour at the Burton Cummings Theatre on December 18th.

No word yet if there’s a package deal offered.

Also, the impossibly charismatic Josh Ritter returns to Winnipeg on October 28th for a gig at the West End Cultural Centre. His sixth record, So Runs the World Away, dropped back in May.

Ghost Cousin, The Eardrums, and Enjoy Your Pumas play Le Garage Café (166 Provencher) on July 14th.

Finally, if you’re around Old Market Square Tuesday @ noon, this year’s Folk Festival launch party takes place featuring a free show courtesy of acclaimed roots act The Duhks.
