September 25 | 5pm
Paul Jacobs, while you may know him as a founding member and the drummer of Montreal buzz band Pottery, his solo project existed long before its formation. A DIY rock'n'roll machine surfing a psychedelic deluge, as vibrant and motley as his signature album covers and music videos, the Montreal-based songwriter runs on day-glo slickness and creative frenzy with seven albums already and a slew of EPs and singles to his credit.
