THE SUPER 8’S VIDEOS & ANIMATIONS OF BOB WISEMAN

SUN, MAR 15 / 7 pm
Introduced by Bob Wiseman

Currently on tour across Canada, Bob Wiseman – referred to as “Canada’s Tom Waits” by Ron Sexsmith – brings his incredibly eclectic films and music (guitar and accordion) for a live performance with films at Cinematheque. Bob will present an evening of singing and films, including The Found Poetry (with Sarah Harmer), Who am I (with Feist) and Bob and Choice (with Scott Thompson of The Kids in the Hall).

His touring history includes jaunts with Billy Bragg, Michelle Shocked, Daniel Lanois, Cracker, Jane Siberry, Jim Carroll, Vic Chestnut and countless others. He has produced recordings for such notables as Edie Brickell, Kids In The Hall’s Bruce McCulloch, Ron Sexsmith and many more. He has written movie and television scores (including for Don McKellar and Bruce McDonald’s Twitch City).

Wiseman has also recorded and played with a who’s who of excellent musicians – including Wilco, The Wallflowers, Blue Rodeo, Bare Naked Ladies, the Hidden Cameras…
