Thursday 24 May: THE YOUNG NOVELISTS, with special guest RACHAEL CARDIELLO
8pm, $10 advance here, $20 door.
THE YOUNG NOVELISTS
The Young Novelists are a Toronto-based band fronted by husband and wife Graydon James and Laura Spink. With a sound that has been compared to everyone from The Band to ‘pre-weirdness’ Wilco, the band’s personal mission is to create sad songs for happy people — whether that means a nostalgic ballad or an upbeat anthem, The Young Novelists’ ability to tell familiar stories with a modern folk edge make them, and their songs, instant classics. Their last album 'Made Us Strangers' garnered them a Canadian Folk Music Award for Emerging Artist of the Year, and their third full-length album 'In City & Country' will be released May 4th, 2018.
Born in tornado alley, raised between mountains in Montana, and now residing in Toronto, Rachael Cardiello sings of cross-border living, mental institutions, love, ghosts, and an eclectic history of homes in an alternative version of the American dream.
