Sasha Chapin - So Long

Once again Tim McCready turned his home into the city's coolest venue for a day, transforming living room, basement and backyard into performance spaces for a chill day-long party. A backyard stage under an arch of trees at the very far end of the lot made the show feel even more like it was taking place off in some friendly forest. The programming, thanks once again to an alliance with M for Montréal and an association with a large local corporate rock festival, mixed a few mostly-Montréal out-of-towners with local faces.

Action alternated back and forth from the backyard stage to the living room, which saw chugging postrock, minimalist art-disco and hip-hop — and also this quiet set from local balladeer Sasha Chapin, singing with a high, trembling voice and emotional directness recalling Sean Nicholas Savage. Chapin was also disarmingly entertaining, as heard in the story that precedes this one.

[Sasha Chapin will be playing at a POP Montréal showcase at The Silver Dollar on Thursday, July 23rd, alongside Nancy Pants, Look Vibrant, Goodbye Honolulu and The Nursery.]
