When news broke that local superstars, friends, and good people Scott Nolan and Joanna Miller were going on tour with one of the world’s great singer/songwriters, Mary Gauthier, the obvious question was, “When are they playing Winnipeg?” Well, unfortunately for the longest time, the answer was, “I don’t know.” As the reviews came in, all declaring this show, where Scott & Jo open and then back up Mary during her set, a real winner, things in Winnipeg got a whole lot more frustrating. How could a couple of locals do something so amazing and not want to show it off in their home town? Well, they did, but it took some effort to make a local date work and happen.
Enter the unstoppable force known as Eugene Osudar. He’s the crazy dancin’ dude you see at EVERY local show. He’s also a passionate promoter, supporter, and he just happens to be friends with Erick from one of Winnipeg’s best live venues, The Park Theatre. After all of the whining that Old Pal Stu and I did about this show, all it took was dancin’ Eugene to make a request, and the offer was in. We’re all super thrilled that things worked out and all parties accepted.

Tickets $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Tickets are available now at Music Trader, The Park Theatre, and should be available online soon at http://www.parktheatervideo.com/ticket-break/. But cheap-hearted Winnipeggers will want to save on those pesky “convenience fees” by getting them directly from Eugene, Stu, or me! We’ll even deliver them to you or meet up with you at a location of your choice! Doesn’t get much more convenient than that, and there’s no fee involved! Find us, hit us up, or take your chances at the door, but don’t miss this show!
