Welkin Blow Into Toronto Next Week

Published: 2005-03-31
Touring behind the very recently released sophomore effort "Strangers & Exiles", Vancouver's dream rock band Welkin will pack up their bags and head to the opposite side of the country. The trio will hit Toronto in just a few days, and will be setting up shop in the metropolis for a good four days. During that time Welkin will play two gigs, one on the 7th at the El Mocambo, and the other on the 10th at the Reverb.

On their way towards Toronto, Welkin will also be hitting up quite a few other Canadian cities. They kicked off their very first cross-country jaunt in their hometown on March 24th, and they'll be playing tonight (March 31st) in Thunder Bay, Ontario. There are six remaining dates on the tour, all scheduled to take place in Ontario.

Welkin's latest disc "Strangers & Exiles" was just released this Tuesday, March 29th, and features 12 new tracks from the band. And just for some added fun, here's something most people will count among those facts that you don't really want to know: Welkin mastermind Geoff Birch records all of his vocal tracks in the nude. See, did you really want to know that? Probably not.

Remaining dates on Welkin's cross-country tour:

March 31 Thunder Bay, ON - The Apollo
April 2 Sudbury ON - The Townehouse
April 5 Hamilton, ON - Casbah
April 6 Kitchener, ON - The Circus Room
April 7 Toronto, ON - The El Mocambo
April 10 Toronto, ON - The Reverb Room
