Jason Collett

In late March we had an alumnus of the Toronto music collective Broken Social Scene pass through town. That would be Emily Haines, who currently fronts the Canadian rock group Metric. On Tuesday April 19 another former member of BSS plays Regina.

As a solo artist, Jason Collett has eight studio albums to his credit — the most recent beingĀ Song and Dance ManĀ which was released in February. For some time now, he’s had a regular back-up band that has also released material of its own under the name Zeus.

Zeus will be performing with Collett on Tuesday, and the opening act will be Ontario singer-songwriter Kalle Mattson. The show goes at the Exchange, and tickets are $15 advance and $20 door.

To give you a sense of what Collett’s been up to lately here’s the video for the title track off his latest album:
