Went to the first of two nights of The Wooden Sky‘s Holiday Show at the NAC Fourth Stage.
This was the first time the band has done the holiday show outside of Toronto and Ottawa got a chance first hand.
Dubbed as a the holiday, the band didn’t really perform any Christmas/holidays.
This was more of a revue show for them to perform materials from their first three album plus the current album.
The special guests for the Ottawa show were Jon Hynes and Evening Hymns.
Overall this tops my favorite show from the band (Second being The Horseshoe Tavern back in 2013 and third being at the Blacksheep Inn on November 27, 2009.).
I didn’t have to deal with drunken ya-hoos or stand in a crowded room, it was more of a sit down and be intimated kind of a show.
Proceeds from the ticket sales went to Carty House, which is a communal residence in Ottawa that provides transitional housing for female refugee claimants.
So come out and see the second night of the show.
