Pick of the Day: Final Fantasy w/Timber Timbre

Final Fantasy a.k.a. Owen Pallett has performed in Regina a couple of times before. In 2008, in fact, he played the main stage at the Regina Folk Festival. Here's the video for the title track of his 2006 Polaris award winning album He Poos Clouds. (YouTube) As well, if you check out our Sept. 24 issue, you'll find an interview with him by Emily Zimmerman that serves as a preview of his gig tonight at the Exchange as part of the RFF's Concert Series.

Joining Pallett is another pseudonymous singer-songwriter Timber Timbre a.k.a. Taylor Kirk. He's signed to Arts & Crafts and has three albums to his credit -- Cedar Shakes (2006), Medicinals (2007) and Timber Timbre (2009). I believe he's making his first appearance in Regina. But don't be surprised if, following this show, you see him on the main stage at a future Regina Folk Festival. Here's him performing his song "Demon Host" off Timber Timbre (YouTube)
