Shannon Scott's songs blend elements of jazz harmony, pop melody and poetry; on piano, her music is expressed with an original voice as she winds her way through form and sound in unpredictable ways, and she invariably sings with her heart on her sleeve. She collaborates in a great variety of musical and artistic projects, and has been evolving her identity as a musician in Vancouver since 2006. In this trio, Drummer Skye Brooks and guitarist Jeff Younger bring their deep sonic sensibilities to the music, and the songs become explorations in possibility.
Are we not drawn onward to new era is a cross-wired fever dream of conspiracy and functioning. It is a plot of points, full of holes, desperately drawing lines. It tries to build a narrative out of fragments and yet is a caution against making sense of non-sense.
It is inspired by the honest desperation of superfluous young men, their need and stupidity.
>perhaps the heaviest things that we lift are not our weights but our feels.
Sawdust Collector takes place at The Gold Saucer Studio, a collective space located in The Dominion Building. Information on how to enter the show is posted on the front door of the building by 8:45 PM on every show night. After 9:30 PM you will need a cell phone to enter. If you do not have access to a phone please try to arrive by 9:15 PM. If you come later there may be a wait.
The front door is located at 207 W. Hastings. There is one low stair between the sidewalk and the building level. The studio is located on the second floor and is accessible by elevator. Seating is informal. We will do our best to adapt seating as requested, but site-lines may not be ideal on full nights and movement may be limited. If you have questions about accessing the space, please contact us. There is one single-occupancy, gender-inclusive washroom on the second floor, accessible by key. We are a trans-inclusive space.
Sawdust Collector is run by us, three artists and our friends who curate and produce the events on a volunteer basis. We own the glassware but not the room. For our weekly series, a bit of scruff is part of the deal. If you have questions about what kind of scruff you're in for, please feel free to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
We acknowledge that our work takes place in Vancouver on traditional and unceded Indigenous land belonging to the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish),Stó:lō and səlil̓wətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We are grateful for this place.
