Big City Cough w/ Animal Parts: Born At Night Album Release Residency
@ The Dakota Tavern, Toronto
November 21, 2017
As they await Big City Cough, a hushed crowd is aglow from the stringed lights draped across the stage at Dakota Tavern. Its hometown feel and intimacy make the venue feels like it was meant for the explorative ‘folk art’ music of Big City Cough, Toronto-favourite Sean Beresford’s first solo set since gracing many stages across the city as another band’s guitarist.
Every Tuesday in November, from 6-9 pm, Big City Cough and formidable host of local opening acts serenade captive audiences. It is a beautiful way for Beresford to share the instrumental compositions from his solo release, Born At Night (November 3, 2017, independent).
David Celia and Hamilton Trading Co. helped to open Big City Cough’s month-long album release residency.
Last Tuesday, the talented singer/songwriter Josh Cockerill from Animal Parts warmed up the crowd. Big City Cough graced the stage to share epic improvisations and album material, along with works by esteemed Chicago songwriter, Jim O’Rourke.
Lee Rose and The Ace of Wands will help Big City Cough close the intimate album release series on Tuesday November 28. For $10 it’s a steal. Be sure to pick up one of the 300-limited pressed vinyl of Born At Night for your collection.
