The Capital Complex invite local musicians to the pay tribute to their favourite Fredericton musical acts.
Wednesday nights at The Capital Complex have long been associated with reggae music. For more than a decade now, Dub Antenna, the city’s enormous reggae ensemble have held court on the Wilser’s Room stage through a good portion of the year. But during the coldest months when most of us are dreaming about sandy beaches, ‘Pines in the park and tubing adventures down the Miramichi or the Nashwaak, Wednesday nights at Fredericton’s most popular live music venue take on various personalities. There have been craft nights, vinyl nights, and a variety of off-season musical residencies. In fact, for some, off-season at The Capital (that stretch of time when the members of Dub Antenna are free to stay home and watch Netflix or play other gigs in the dozens of local bands they inhabit) might be the most exciting time of the winter because you never know what to expect on the mid-week stage. And the latest Winter Wednesday event is no exception.
For three nights (February 7, 14 and 21), Locals Covering Locals aims to welcome local musicians to stage, each offering their own interpretations of music by other local artists. How fun is that?!?!?
“I’d love like The Montgomery St Band to cover Motherhood, the weirder the better,” says The Capital’s Kate Butler.
In order for this to work, they need as many musicians as possible to throw their hats in the ring. To sign up, visit https://goo.gl/a2oUXz for details. Interested musicians have until January 5 to register.
Let’s make this happen.
