Due to the passing of one near and dear to me, I'm really late getting word about about this... hope those of you in Ottawa can make it!

The Dusty Owl Reading Series Presents Melissa Laveaux

Sunday 18 February


The Electric Gallery

30 Marier Ave. (off Beechwood, in Vanier)

No Cover

To heat up the February cold snap, soulfunk musician Mélissa Laveaux is coming to the Dusty Owl stage this month, and bringing her unique brand of funk-folk guitar and classy vocals with her. Mélissa was mentioned as one of the 2006 ‘Frémissements locaux’ ("local noise-maker") in Voir's annual music review. She also received two Ottawa XPress ‘Best of Ottawa’ nominations for 2006: Best Folk Musician and Best Album of the Year. The new album Camphor & Copper has been receiving great reviews from Germany to back home in Ottawa. If you missed her feature at Capital Slam this November, now's your chance to hear the voice that's causing the stir!

Please note: Due to ongoing repairs at Swizzles Bar & Grill, we are still on the road. This month's show will be happening at the Electric Gallery (30 Marier Ave., just off Beechwood Ave in Vanier; check their website for directions.) It might be a little off the beaten path but this space is a whole lot of fun and we're excited to be visiting!

After the reading, as always, there will be an open mike for anyone who wants to bring poems, stories, or songs, and the Dusty Owl's famous Object of Desire contest. See you there!
