In case you haven’t noticed over the years, The Carleton is a sucker for artists who know how to write a great song and that goes for acts that everyone in the world is familiar with and those that the world isn’t familiar with yet but ought to be, or might be somewhere down the road.
We think it’s our responsibility to introduce Halifax to as many of them as we believe in. That’s the case with Saint John transplant Adam Washburn and Edmonton songwriter Doug Hoyer. They’re sharing the bill on Thursday, April 16th and we think it’s going to be a stellar night that deserves your attention.
Show time is 9 PM and it’s a freaking measly $5 at the door to get in.
Adam Washburn is now based in Halifax but started his career in New Brunswick. He’s been working with Dale Murray to produce his first full-length and he and his band will rock heavily (he’s promised) on this night. I think he’s someone we’re all going to be hearing a lot more about in the near future.
Doug Hoyer is a pop-rock artist from Edmonton, a prominent member of the Edmonton based music collective, OLD UGLY Recording Co. and, interestingly enough, was a cast member of the reality show Rock Camp, which aired on CBC Television in 2004 and featured our own Joel Plaskett along with various guests. He’s got some game.
