Tuesday night, Abigail Lapell played her music in The White Room in Nanaimo, BC. It was the longest day of the year, and when the show wrapped up at 9:50pm, the sky was still very bright. The last of its reflections on Turtle Island for this “day”. Our planet rockets like a boomerang slingshot around that fireball sun, and now the days become shorter with every passing one. What a trip.
Today’s program moves through a number of different sounds without any talking breaks whatsoever. A whole hour of non-stop music for your little ear holes. Many of these artists were selected by a random cross-section of sidewalk loiterers (outside The White Room, incidentally), and it was up to me to put it all together and in a coherent order. I hope you enjoy!
