White Poppy

Cosy Father

Old Girl

About Brad Dunn:
Brad Dunn has long been known in Seattle's underground music circles as a brilliant songwriter. After a long hiatus from playing live, this will be his first show in Victoria.

From ballofwax:
"Brad Dunn is yet another of Seattle’s all too well-kept secrets. Whether spewing noisy, somewhat-tonal guitar riffs with his old band Sleepy Workers or creating masterpieces of brooding pop music under his own name, Mr. Dunn can do little wrong to my ears.

Brad Dunn’s sound is somehow timeless – there are echos of Lee Hazlewood, Ennio Morricone, and 90s guitar bands such as Polvo and Sonic Youth, among many others – and yet completely his own. There’s a certain weariness that comes through, both in the music – which is often slow and subtle – and in his somber baritone voice. At the same time, though, there is a playful energy that can’t be denied, whether in the dark humor of his lyrics or the decade- and globe-spanning turns that the music itself can take. Generally his songs manage to be slow, and often sad, while still being compelling to listen to rather than a depressing slog"
