Poutine Presents: What Might Have Been

Taylor and Timothy want to know you better. They also want you to know them better. This show is an opportunity for them to show you what they might have been like if just one tiny part of them was loved and nurtured differently, inflated and allowed to completely take over the rest of who they were becoming. They already know who they are. Why not explore who they aren't?

A night of acoustic and electronic music. Featuring Nicole Antonuccio (shoot-from-the-hip guitar and earnest vocals; sentiment without saccharin), Meredith Johnston (voice and circa-1986 keyboard; looped and delayed into haunting melodies), and Dan Derks (computer and grids; malleable electronic compositions performed with a 'wet paint' approach).
