November 20, 7:15 PM, Artesian on 13th
We're very excited to welcome back Winnipeg & Montreal-based CHIC GAMINE to Artesian. Playing on Friday, November 20th, the band is on tour celebrating the release of their latest Album: Light A Match.
Intensely creative and always evolving, Chic Gamine have built much since their start in 2007 – touring across Canada, the USA and parts of Europe, bringing their sound to venues everywhere, to festivals such as the Montreal Jazz Festival, Festival International de Louisiane, Winnipeg, Regina and Calgary’s respective Folk Festivals, France’s Transmusicales and SXSW amongst others.
Their first self-titled album was released in 2008 and garnered them a 2009 Juno for best Roots Album. Their sophomore album, City City (2010), was nominated for a 2011 Juno in the same category. Then came an American re-release, Closer in 2012 – mixed and mastered anew by three of Rick Rubin’s Grammy Award-winning engineers – and in winter 2014, the Holiday-themed EP they pushed on a six-week, cross Canada run with Stuart Maclean’s Vinyl Cafe, Christmas Vol. 1.
Enter Light A Match. More daring than their previous records, Light A Match shows an amped-up, fleshed-out side of Chic Gamine, one they say is truer to the vision they originally had for themselves, one they needed time to evolve into.
Doors and Lounge will Open at 7:00PM, the Show will start at 8PM. Tickets are $20 in Advance or $25 at the Door.
