Mon, Sept 21, L.A.: Arthur and When You Awake present Doug Paisley, more at the Echo, FREE


Canadian country-folk musician Doug Paisley‘s debut album was released late last year through No Quarter Records, its understated beauty capturing the admiration of Arthur’s C and D, who were scheduled to review it in their column in the tragically unpublished Arthur No. 32. The album’s been kinda underheard since, but whatever, that’s the underhearers’ problem, right?

In any event, this month Mr. Paisley (who is now being “managed” by Arthur’s Jay Babcock) will be traveling to California to perform as a solo artist for the first time ever in the Golden State at a bunch of affordable, all-ages shows. (Some folks may have seen Paisley before as one-half of the Dark Hand and Lamplight duo with artist Shary Boyle when they opened for Bonnie Prince Billy on a California jaunt in 2006.)

Catch this rich-voiced Torontonian troubadour, mustachioed or otherwise, at the following time-space coordinates:

Mon Sep 21 2009 8:00P at The Echo w/ Leslie & Badgers Los Angeles (free!) (see poster above) (presented by Arthur, put together by the great When You Awake blog)
