Not your average acoustic show

Death ballad songwriters strut their stuff

David P. Smith plays his Death Ballad Love Tellers show Feb. 23 at the Merlin’s Sun Home Theatre. 

Victoria’s own David P. Smith plays the Death Ballad Love Tellers show Feb. 23 at the Merlin’s Sun Home Theatre. The show is a songwriter round featuring Smith, Ben Sures and Bubba Uno.  All have written new death ballads to premiére during the tour.

Testosterone’s answer to the Scrappy Bitches of a decade ago, Sures, Smith and Uno will premiere new songs written for the tour and for a new album they’ll record together when it’s over.

They’ll also accompany each other on guitar, ukulele and accordion respectively while each takes a turn showcasing songs from his solo repertoire.

Smith says touring with Sures and Uno is exciting because everyone on the bill is so different. “This songwriters in the round is about 5,000 miles away from three earnest dudes with acoustic guitars,” he said. “There’s not a chance to get bored.”

Call 250-598-7488 or email timgosley@telus.net. The show is at 8 p.m., tickets are $20.
