× Bahamas: Still Sad Tour
Monday, January 17, 2022 at 8:00pm
Tickets: Advance $52.50 / Door $57.50

Description: Sad Hunk, the fifth album from Bahamas, the award-winning singer-songwriter otherwise known as Afie Jurvanen, takes its title from a nickname bestowed upon him by his wife in reaction to his media portrayal, "…I did a photo shoot, and in all the pictures they sent back, I was lit half in shadow, looking all brooding and mysterious." Fitting for an album that embodies an undaunted self-awareness, each track graced with Bahamas' wry wit and unabashed heart. Having moved to Nova Scotia, the Ontario native imbued the album with his surroundings.

2018's Grammy-nominated Earthtones featured bassist Pino Palladino and drummer James Gadson (D'Angelo's Black Messiah rhythm section), merging them with Bahamas’ stable of heavyweight musicians. Sad Hunk was created with those same collaborators—Christine Bougie (guitar), Don Kerr (drums), Mike O'Brien (bass), and Felicity Williams (vocals). Recorded by producer Robbie Lackritz, the album is born from charmed spontaneity and raw imagination.
