SINGER-SONGWRITER Matt Mays is unplugging his electric guitar and taking to the road this fall.
Mays is setting off on a 19-date Canadian tour of intimate venues that makes a stop at the Park Theatre on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
"I love playing on my own with just an old acoustic guitar or a piano," Mays says in a release promoting the tour. "It's how all of the songs on Coyote were conceived. Late at night in a haze, or with a coffee in the morning. It's how I met the muse on these songs. I've wanted to take that vibe on the road, and now I am."
Opening for Mays will be Adam Baldwin, Mays' longtime bandmate in El Torpedo.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Advance tickets go on sale Friday at ticketbreak.com, the Park Theatre and Music Trader.
Also appearing at the Park Theatre, on Tuesday, Oct. 15, is three-time Juno winner David Francey. The singer-songwriter's 36-date cross-Canada odyssey is in support of his latest recording, So Say We All, which hit store shelves in the spring.
Tickets for Francey's concert are $17 in advance, through the West End Cultural Centre, Music Trader and Ticketmaster, and $22 at the door.
