If you've overslept your alarm that was set for the last few Talkin' Donkey shows you'd better set another for Saturday January 25th. Much a buzz has been coming from the walls of the Talkin Donkey lately with the fellows from Paperboy packing the house consistantly. “We couldn't be happier with the response we've gotten from the community. We sold out the last show and couldn't believe it. It really goes to show that Vernon, while constantly in Kelowna's shadow, is a far more supportive place for up and coming musicians and artists alike.”
While each show has been gathering more and more momentum, the lads from Paperboy never loose sight of the small, and most important things. “the people that come out to the show are our friends, family and co-workers, so we want to work that much harder at every little detail so it's that much more memorable.” True to thier word Paperboy has hand folded 50 limited tickets in the traditional origami style. Each one at some point was carefully creased and marked. “I took a english class in college with Kevin McPherson, and he'd always be cooking up ideas for public events. They seemed so outlandish at the time, but perhaps its because no one else was doing it. But the idea of making an event so unique that it probably wont happen again really resonates with people. I don't see alot of people on their cell phones.”
An evening it will be. Opening the evening is Vernon's own Naked Ghosts. Perhaps you've heard the expression "like a bull in a china shop?" Well very quickly it needs to be changed to ““like Naked Ghosts in a Coffee shop". With all the energy of an atom bomb these young guns are fixin to steal your heart and soul with their inspiring take on rock an roll. While the talkin donkey shows have largely been talent from the interior, this show promises to offer something different.
The second act of the evening Heard in the Mountains hails from the lowermainland. While echos of chamber and symphonic themes can often be heard in their compositions, these young men blend organic textures with synthesised sensiblitys for a sound that will leave you breathless. Imagine for a moment if you were in a baroque theatre in 1650 in some township in mainland europe and the ensemble proforming had amplifiers and keyboards. “Don't sleep on these guys, they are the real deal!” said Mortenson. Lastly is Vernon's own Paperboy. As always they promise to sweat themselves to dyhydration during their set. This dynamic trio, drawing heavily from mo-town, stax records and the soul music tradition want to show some love to their hometown crowd.
The show begins at 6 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased at the Talkin Donkey as well as Electibles records (downtown across from the town theatre). $10 for adults and $7 for students (with valid ID)
