Chloé Laberge & The Noisy Locomotive - Chloé Laberge & The Noisy Locomotive
|After a busy year of farming, heritage carpentry and touring the world with the circus, The Noisy Locomotive are back. This time around they are joined by Chloé Laberge, who will lend her captivating voice and accordion playing to the gang. Their new album “Chloé Laberge & The Noisy Locomotive” is a collection of Cajun and Québécois tunes that are near and dear to their hearts. The album was recorded on a chilly winter’s night in Cantley, QC, huddled around a single mic, with dinner on the stove and whiskey and wine a-flowing. This is a kitchen party, no doubt about it—and you’re invited.
Chloé Laberge, The Noisy Locomotive, and Nik Field would like to invite you to their Double Release Party!
$10 Cover or $25 Cover & Both CDs!
8 pm - Saturday, April 15th @ Happy Goat Coffee Co.
A dusty church room in Chinatown, cozy apartments, poutine and gear hunting through the bustling streets of Montreal. Nik Field's debut solo album Where the Watermelons Grow brings together the sights, sounds and familiar faces that have defined him as a songwriter. Influences of John Prine, Paul Simon, early Tom Waits, and traditional folk music inspire this diverse set of original songs, each with a compelling story to tell. Where the Watermelons Grow is self-produced, recorded and mixed, and is as honest as they come.
Chloé Laberge & The Noisy Locomotive
Entre plusieurs tournées mondiales avec le cirque, ainsi qu'un retour à la terre en agriculture et en menuiserie, 'The Noisy Locomotive' est de retour. Cette fois-ci, en compagnie de Chloé Laberge, qui les accompagne au chant et à l'accordéon cajun. Leur nouvel album "Chloé Laberge & The Noisy Locomotive" est une collection de chansons cajuns inspirées des frère Balfa, ainsi que des chansons traditionnelles des bois québécois. L'album a été enregistré à Cantley, QC, un beau soir d'hiver...tous autour d'un micro, le souper sur le poêle et le bon vin en main. C'est un vrai party de cuisine, et on vous y invite!
“Ces musiciens possèdent un art précis, celui de faire renaitre des airs d’autrefois, ceux du vrai style old-time...Musiciens chevronnés et dotés des mêmes talents d’antan, ils nous rappellent la débauche d’un de ces fameux partys de cuisine dont nous sommes restés nostalgiques.” - Basement 819

The Ramblin' Valley Band is going to make you want to get up and bounce! These local favourites cook up flavourful jams mixing blues, country, bluegrass and rock and roll into one sweet spread. This versatile band can jump genres seamlessly, trade instruments with ease, and work together to highlight each member as a part in a mighty groovin' machine.

On an ordinary day, hapless florist’s assistant Seymour finds a mysterious plant that changes everything. Suddenly, Seymour’s dreams all come true: he gets the girl, his boss adopts him as family, and he becomes a rich and famous horticulturalist. But nothing comes for free, and Seymour has no choice but to give in to his bloodthirsty plant’s escalating demands. Written by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken — the musical team behind Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin — it features a slew of iconic songs including “Suddenly Seymour,” “Somewhere That’s Green,” and of course, “Little Shop of Horrors.” This Off-Broadway cult classic won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, and the Outer Critics Circle Award. Don’t miss this hilarious and touching send-up of science fiction, the Faust legend, and classic B-movie horror.
