2nd SHIFT Concert: Myriam Gendron

Eventbrite - 2nd SHIFT Music Series Concert: Myriam Gendron

Please join us for an evening of music with Montreal’s Myriam Gendron, whose debut album adapting Dorothy Parker’s poems to song is one of the most affecting pieces of music we’ve come across in the last few years. Sad, funny and full of surprises, these songs will stay with you for a long time to come.

"One of 2014's quiet surprises was Not So Deep As A Well, in which Montreal's Myriam Gendron set Dorothy Parker's poetry to little more than an acoustic guitar and a wry, wistful voice. Just when you think Parker's words have worn away Gendron, the singer twists or repeats a phrase in a way that unexpectedly cuts deeper, or even skews absurd.” — Lars Gotrich, NPR

Doors open at 7:30pm and the show begins at approximately 8:00pm. Arrive early and enjoy a self-guided tour of the museum!

Beverages are included in the ticket price, non-alcoholic for everyone, and beer & wine to those 21+.
