James Gordon and the Sad Clown

Joking about taking one last stab at earning street credibility, folk singer James Gordon stole his sons’ rock band for this special set. Evan Gordon, (ex-Constantines, ex-Royal City), Geordie Gordon (Salt Lick Kids, Barmitzvah Brothers) and the rest of the Sad Clowns utilised their experimental classic rock sound to juice up the elder Gordon’s socially conscious songs. The outspoken activist was charged up by his boys’ punk energy, while the young Gordons in turn made nods to such mutual inspirations as the Band on the new "Inukshuk.” A magical performance for locals, James Gordon and sons brought it home.
