Patrick Watson

Opening act: Loney Dear

Our Patrick Watson has come a long way since his first appearance at the Festival, in 2005, when he opened for John Cale in the Spectrum. Four years later, his remarkable musical trajectory landed him on the Place des Festivals for an unforgettable Grand événement featuring star turns by Lhasa and Guy Nadon. This time, the Montrealer settles into the prestigious Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier with a new 4th album, Adventures In Your Own Backyard. It's elementary, dear Watson.

After dazzling us with an enchanting "Événement spécial" several years back, Patrick Watson, one of Montreal’s most cherished musical sons, returns to us with what may be the finest show of his career. And he arrives with the promise that he’ll unveil an array of unheard and unseen surprises for the Festival. I can’t wait!

from gnrd will attend this concert:

I have only one Patrick Watson album but thought that I should try to see him as he plays in his hometown Montreal. He reminds me of Jeff Buckley but also Antony & the Johnsons. It will be an ethereal show. Goto his website and watch/listen to the title track of his new album 'Adventures in your own backyard' - it sounds like Jeff Buckley singing a Radiohead version of a Burl Ives song - really out there!
