The Georgia Straight presents Whitehorse at the Commodore
Live Nation has announced that Canadian roots-rock band Whitehorse--the husband-and-wife duo of singer-songwriters Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland--will perform at the Commodore Ballroom on Saturday, January 26, in support of its second studio album, The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss.
Whitehorse’s live show wrests complex layers of percussion, keyboard and telephone receiver amplification with looping pedals, adding complicated (and risky) elements.
"We have a pretty complicated setup on stage," McClelland says. "We're looping rhythms. Luke has a kick drum and I have a stomp box, and we have seven guitars, bass guitar, keyboards, tons of percussion. So for a lot of the songs, we're building pretty complicated loops and playing along to that. We're building it very organically on stage so anything can happen. It's gone very wrong, and very right.”
Tickets for the show are priced at $22.50 (plus service charges and fees) and go on sale this Friday (October 12) at 10 a.m. on the Live Nation website.
Tickets are also available for purchase by phone at 1-855-985-5000, at Red Cat records, all Ticketmaster Outlets and Rogers Wireless Box Office.twitter.com/vanhappenings
