Last week at the Latent Lounge a number of Latent artists covered songs off of The Trinity Session. Pete and Mike sat in on a few of the songs, it was an amazing night. We have been and will continue to be posting songs from all four Latent Lounges so make sure to subscribe to the Latent Recordings YouTube channel.
We had an amazing time at the third installment of Latent Lounge last night, celebrating the release of Jerry Leger‘s new album Nonsense and Heartache as well as the songs of The Trinity Session. We will be posting some videos of the night in a day or so on our Cowboy Junkies Facebook page and on the Latent Recordings Facebook page (please Like them if you haven’t already). But in the meantime you can check out all of the videos that we have posted so far on the Latent Recordings YouTube channel. Here is David Bowie’s Five Years from last weeks Dead Heroes cover set.

We are excited to announce Latent Lounge a concert series that will take place at Monarch Tavern in downtown Toronto on March 22, March 29, April 5 and April 12. Each evening will consist of three sets of music; a headlining set ( LeE HARVeY OsMOND, Cowboy Junkies, Jerry Leger & The Situation and Skydiggers); a middle set (Thompson Wilson, HarpAcash & the Morals, Ivy Mairi and Jerry Leger) and an opening set devoted to various Latent artists covering songs based along a theme. On March 22 we will be taking on “The Songs Of Lou Reed” (Cowboy Junkies plan to perform at least two new Lou Reed covers); on March 29 the opening set will be made up of cover songs written by “Dead Heroes” (expect to hear songs by Prince, Joe Strummer, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, etc); on April 5 the theme will be “Latent covers songs from Trinity Session” (no doubt some of us Junkies will help out on a couple of songs); and on April 12 we will all be saluting some of our favourite Canadian songwriters and songs in a set called “Canadiana”. Here is the complete lineup for each night and ticket links. You can buy each show individually or all four shows. We hope to see a lot of you there.
