About This Event

Andy ShaufFew artists are storytellers as deft and disarmingly observational as Andy Shauf. The Toronto-based, Saskatchewan-raised musicians songs unfold like short fiction: theyre densely layered with colorful characters and a rich emotional depth. On his new album, The Neon Skyline on ANTI- Records, he sets a familiar scene of inviting a friend for beers on the opening title track: I said, Come to the Skyline, Ill be washing my sins away. He just laughed, said Ill be late, you know how I can be. The LPs 11 interconnected tracks follow a simple plot: the narrator goes to his neighborhood dive, finds out his ex is back in town, and she eventually shows up. While its overarching narrative is riveting, the real thrill of the album comes from how Shauf finds the humanity and humor in a typical night out and the ashes of a past relationship.
