On Friday June 19th, Adam & Christian will be playing a rare acoustic set at The Station Pub in Port Hope. Their performance will be part of a benefit show for Slidestreet, the event that will turn the main street of Port hope into a giant water slide on Saturday August 8th. Also performing that night will be Shaun Savoy, Derrick Ballard, and Stacy Doherty. There will also be an information meeting from 6:00pm-8:00pm before the show for anyone who wants more info on the event.
We will be playing a few acoustic versions of some of the songs you are used to hearing Storm The Palace perform, but we will be playing mostly songs that we have never performed before. Expect some different instrumentation than you ares to hearing from us: Acoustic Guitar, Piano, Kids toys, Harmonica… and No Programming.
From the Slidestreet website:
It’s fast. It’s big. It’s art.
On Saturday, August 8, 2015, the team at Critical Mass plans to host a contemporary arts experience on Main Street Port Hope, inspired by UK artist Luke Jerram’s urban slide project! Designer, play expert, and host of the TVO Kids’ show Giver, Michael Lagimodiere, has designed a 400 ft urban water slide for Main Street Port Hope, which will be built on the morning of the event, with a team of volunteers from our community.
Slidestreet is more than an amazing slide though – it’s a compelling contemporary arts experience, and a super fun community event. In addition to the urban water slide art installation on Main Street; Critical Mass will present Slidestreet as a family-friendly event that turns the streets of downtown Port Hope into a contemporary art venue for the day. Critical Mass is working with community partners to coordinate additional entertainment throughout the day for spectators, including DJs, live music, pop-up street performances, activities for the kids, summer refreshments and street food; making this a day to remember!
For one-day only, the community and visitors to Port Hope are encouraged to play in the street, for art’s sake!
