As iconic singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen once said, "We are so lightly here. It is in love that we are made. In love we disappear." That truth was made clear upon his death Nov. 7, 2016, when countless eulogies praised the Canadian-born poet and musician for his peerless career as a poet, painter, philosopher and troubadour.
Expressing their love for the Bard of the Boudoir (as the Washington Post called him in 2006), a raft of local musicians will come together at the Record Exchange for an evening of live Cohen covers. With Tim Johnstone of 94.9 FM The River hosting, artists on the bill include a.k.a. Belle, Belinda Bowler, Steve Fulton, Kayleigh Jack, Leta Neustaedter, Thomas Paul, Curtis Stigers and more.
Attendance, should be high, so guarantee your admission with a free wristband available at The RX (one per person).
To borrow another phrase from the late, great Cohen, "I've often said if I knew where the good songs came from, I'd go there more often." Now you know where to go: The Record Exchange.
