The Bowery Ballroom Welcomes Patrick Watson Tonight

September 7th, 2012

Patrick Watson dabbled in a variety of musical genres, including jazz, ska, classical, ambient and electronica, before launching an eponymous chamber-pop quartet close to 10 years ago. That the band’s eclectic sound has included the use of a bicycle and spoons is probably why Patrick Watson (above, performing “Adventures in Your Own Backyard”) have played with such disparate acts as James Brown and Philip Glass. The band’s fourth album, the spare Adventures in Your Own Backyard, came out last April. See them, alongside fellow Canadians Great Lake Swimmers, tonight at The Bowery Ballroom.
