Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew for Dublin, Cork and Galway solo shows

Kevin Drew

Kevin Drew is taking his solo tour to Dublin, Cork and Galway

The Broken Social Scene musician and singer released the album Aging last November on Arts & Crafts.

A Dublin show happens July 24th at Whelan’s with Selective Memory, and the tour dates include Cork, Galway, Latitude and London.

Tickets €22.50 plus fees from Ticketbooth for Dublin.

July 23rd – Cork, IE – Connolly’s of Leap

July 24th – Dublin, IE – Whelans

July 25th – Galway, IE – Galway Arts Festival @ Roisin Dubh

July 27th – Henham Park, Suffolk, UK – Latitude Festival

July 28th – London, UK – Lafayette

Aging’s sonic profile sits in a similar place as beloved Broken Social Scene songs like “Lover’s Spit,” “Anthems For A Seventeen Year-Old Girl,” and “The Sweetest Kill” – beautifully dark, richly melodic, and tinted with shades of melancholy and longing. Where other Kevin Drew songs throughout his vast and incredible catalog – both with BSS and as a solo artist – lean into the exuberant fist-pump of being alive, Aging is an album best played at the end of the night; a collection for the stragglers left when the bar is about to close; a serenade for those who are coming down; songs that are quietly sad but ultimately ruminative and comforting.
