Carole Pope Rocks Toronto

By Charlotte Robinson, February 27, 2014

Gay pop icon Carole Pope who pushes the boundaries of sexuality, sexual politics & the status quo, making you think & dance at the same time, is appearing live in Toronto, Canada. Catch her unplugged & uncensored Friday Feb 28th at The Flying Beaver Pubaret accompanied by storied guitarist Tim Welch at 9P. Carole stated, “Excited to be back in Toronto for a show at The Flying Beaver with Tim Welch. So fun to be all loose cannon crazy with him.” Pope’s music has provided LGBT anthems for our community on The L Word, General Idea Art Aids & the fin de siecle, The Trailer Park Boys Movie, Queer As Folk, This Revolution, Miami Vice, Cruising & numerous TV shows. Her work has earned her three Canadian Juno Awards, multiple independent music awards & a Genie Award. She's also been awarded 4 gold, 1 platinum & 1 double platinum album. Her new album, "Landfall" featuring a duet with Rufus Wainwright was written with Hawksley Workman. When asked how that duet came together Pope stated, “I’ve known Rufus for a few years & I’ve always wanted to sing with him. I asked him & his manager called & said that Rufus has an hour on a certain day so we had the song ready so we totally got it together. So we went into the studio & banged it out in an hour. It was pretty amazing. He was great to work with.” More good news, Pope's autobiography, "Anti Diva" published by Random House has been optioned & a film is in development. The Flying Beaver Pubaret is at 488 Parliament Street Toronto, Ontario.
