Chan Centre EXP presents Juno-nominated The Weather Station featuring UBC
On January 21, Juno-nominated experimental folk band The Weather Station will give a special performance for the Chan Centre EXP series, co-presented with the UBC Centre for Climate Justice.
The Weather Station is the ambitious and expansive musical project of Toronto’s Tamara Lindeman. Her most recent albums, Ignorance and How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars, explore deep emotional landscapes, as Lindeman reckons with the realities of climate grief and the ecological crisis through her songs.
The latest albums, which were released in the last two years, have propelled The Weather Station to new-found fame and praise. Alongside major tours in Europe and North America, the records have landed in the year-end top 10 lists of The New Yorker, Spin, The New York Times, Pitchfork, The Guardian, and several others. Most notably, these albums were written during a period when Lindeman was experiencing intense grief due to the climate crisis. Her lyrics poignantly and achingly lament the loss of the planet instead of lost love.
For this concert, The Weather Station will be joined by a 10-piece orchestral ensemble featuring members of the UBC Contemporary Players. They will perform new arrangements of several songs by The Weather Station, including “Robber” and “Tried to Tell You” by award-winning Canadian composer Darren Fung and UBC School of Music PhD candidate Mark Marinic.
The concert takes place on January 21 at 8 pm at the Chan Shun Concert Hall at Chan Centre for the Performing Arts.
