The Milk Carton Kids announce Vancouver show with Haley Heynderickx

Mar 17 2020, 9:02 am

California folk duo The Milk Carton Kids are coming to Vancouver this spring with special guest singer-songwriter Haley Heynderickx

The artists are set to perform live at the Commodore Ballroom on Thursday, May 14 during The Milk Carton Kids’ world tour.

Kicking off on March 28 with a show in Tennessee, the tour is followed by stops in San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, LA, Sweden, Netherlands, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney, among other international cities.

The group’s latest release “The Only Ones” sees Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale playing a raw acoustic set without a backing band. Already, the duo has been nominated for three Grammy awards, and their newest album All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn’t Do drops on June 29.

Meanwhile, Heynderickx’s debut album, I Need to Start a Garden, echoes her search for calm through waves of uncertainty. The singer, who grew up in a religious household in Oregon, closely identifies with her Filipino roots and straddles multiple cultural identities.

The songs on I Need to Start a Garden are reminiscent of music of the ’60s and ’70s with soft guitar picking, trombone sighs, and operatic vocals.

Tracks on the album were produced by Timothy Stollenwerk at Stereophonic Mastering in Portland. Also featured on the album is Lily Breshears on bass, keys, and backing vocals, Denzel Mendoza on trombone and backing vocals, Phillip Rogers on drums, percussion, and backing vocals, and Tim Sweeney on upright bass.

Tickets to The Milk Carton Kids and Haley Heynderickx’s Vancouver concert are on sale now for $45 (including fees and taxes) via Ticketmaster.
