BOBBY BAZINI – Guest:Gabrielle Schonk

Key City Theatre

Quick. Which Canadian artist’s debut album went platinum this year?  Besides the rapper Drake, we mean. The answer is Bobby Bazini, a Montreal-area singer-songwriter with a magician-like name who’s trying to make good his escape from Quebec, where the bulk of the 80,000 copies of Better in Time were sold. If you haven’t heard of him yet, you will soon. The 21-year-old does not take his own advice. His planned ascent is steeply graded, and his time is rapidly approaching.

Tickets $35 | $29 Key City Theatre Members | $15 Students
