Doors 830, Show 9
$10 Cover

Classic Water

The songs of Classic Water bring to mind driving through dusty backroads of deserted villages, thinking back on what once was but will never be again. The surreal words of singer Tom Gerritsen are guided by stretches of intertwining melodies, alternated with brief bursts of rock and roll. In an earlier life, Tom released folk music as The T.S. Eliot Appreciation Society, playing over 180 shows in Europe. Seeing Classic Water perform live is a visceral experience. The debut album Concrete Pleasures was recorded and produced by Stacy Parrish (T Bone Burnett, Alison Krauss & Robert Plant) in a 14th century farmhouse in Sweden.

Don McGlashan

Don McGlashan is one of New Zealand’s best known and highly regarded singer-songwriters. He led iconic Kiwi band The Mutton Birds for most of the 90s, relocating with the group to London for the latter half of that time, to sign to Virgin UK. The band’s album “Envy Of Angels” made the UK Sunday Times ten best albums list of 1996. David Sheppard of Q Magazine called their next album,  “Rain Steam & Speed” , “…a minor masterpiece”.

The Mutton Birds were part of The Tragically Hip’s “Another Roadside Attraction” tour of Canada & the US in 1997, along with Los Lobos, Wilco, Ron Sexsmith and Sheryl Crow.

Since The Mutton Birds, Don has made three acclaimed solo albums, “Warm Hand”  (2006), “Marvellous Year” (2009), and “Lucky Stars” (2015). His 2006 gospel anthem “Bathe In The River” has become one of the biggest NZ singles of all time, and Australian Legend Paul Kelly has included Don’s song “White Valiant” in his live solo set.

Don’s latest album, “Lucky Stars”, was released in New Zealand in 2015, and has been his most successful record since his hits with The Mutton Birds, going top five on the NZ charts, and receiving rave reviews in both NZ and Australia.

Don has toured Australia, the US and Europe with Crowded House, both as opening act and as a band member, and he played euphonium, guitar, mandolin and backing vocals on Crowded House albums “Time On Earth” and “Intriguer”. He was part of Neil Finn’s Seven Worlds Collide project, collaborating on his own songs with the Smiths’ Johnny Marr, and members of Wilco and Radiohead, and he’s just finished providing vocals on Finn’s 2017 album “Out Of Silence”.

The Vancouver Poetry Slam is an ongoing event, every Monday, at Café Deux Soleils. There is an open mic section, and then a poetry slam competition. We usually have a feature poet as well. Founded in 1996, Van Slam is the longest-running poetry slam in Canada. Since 2008, there have been regular poetry slams every Monday of every month.

In a regular poetry slam, the poet must perform a poem of their own, of any style, within a time limit without the aid of props or music. 5 randomly selected audience members will become judges and are given score cards to score the poet from zero to 10. The poets with the highest scores after 2 rounds of poems are the winners of cash prizes. Every slam has 10-12 spots open for poets with the top 5 going on to the 2nd round. check out www.vanslam.ca for more up to date and in-depth details of rules!

Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.

Also, be kind to our VOLUNTEER door staff. They have to follow BC Liquor Board Rules and once we are sold out we can’t let anyone in unless someone leaves. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let them know if you are leaving. Also no ATM on site, it’s cash ONLY.

Capacity is 95, please respect the regulations of the venue.

Jesse Waldman

One of Jesse Waldman’s most cherished possessions is a cassette of his grandmother singing the Yiddish folk song Papirosen to his mother. A remnant, like the abandoned guitar discovered in his parent’s basement, that drove his rock ‘n roll dreams out of the suburban sprawl of Thornhill, Ontario, and into the bars of downtown Toronto. A journey cross-country led him to mountains, ocean, and into the arms of Vancouver’s Commercial Drive music scene. Now his home of over twenty years, the West Coast continues to inspire his lush imagery, sublime melodies, and outstanding technique.

Influenced by folk and blues pioneers Townes Van Zandt, JJ Cale, and Neil Young, Jesse has toured Canada, Western US, and the UK, performing everywhere from local pubs to soft-seat theaters, appearing at major festivals including Vancouver’s Folk and International Jazz Fests and Burnaby Blues and Roots Fest.

Mansion Full of Ghosts is Jesse’s highly anticipated solo debut, an exploration of the city’s vast duality, a backdrop of beauty mirrored by a fierce underbelly, and a need to keep a light on in the dark.

1st, 2nd, 3rd & 5th Monday: Open Slam
Sign up at 8pm, show at 9pm

The Vancouver Poetry Slam is an ongoing event, every Monday, at Café Deux Soleils. There is an open mic section, and then a poetry slam competition. We usually have a feature poet as well. Founded in 1996, Van Slam is the longest-running poetry slam in Canada. Since 2008, there have been regular poetry slams every Monday of every month.

In a regular poetry slam, the poet must perform a poem of their own, of any style, within a time limit without the aid of props or music. 5 randomly selected audience members will become judges and are given score cards to score the poet from zero to 10. The poets with the highest scores after 2 rounds of poems are the winners of cash prizes. Every slam has 10-12 spots open for poets with the top 5 going on to the 2nd round. check out www.vanslam.ca for more up to date and in-depth details of rules!

Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.

Also, be kind to our VOLUNTEER door staff. They have to follow BC Liquor Board Rules and once we are sold out we can’t let anyone in unless someone leaves. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let them know if you are leaving. Also no ATM on site, it’s cash ONLY.

Capacity is 95, please respect the regulations of the venue.
