Who: Marlon Chaplin
When: July 19, 2017
Where: House of Targ, Ottawa ON
In his first visit to the Capital since touring with Broken Bricks, Marlon Chaplin made it a point to mention he found it fascinating that a Batman Forever pinball machine; a machine prominently featured alongside the many found at House of Targ in Ottawa’s Glebe neighbourhood.
“The only time I played before was four years ago and that was at the Rainbow,” said Chaplin, who played alongside local artists Price of Gas and Lost at Sea. “I had a pretty good time, so why not [come back]?”
With plans record new material in the fall, Chaplin debuted four new songs he plans to introduce to fans next year; in addition to selections off of his 2016 release Wanderer by Trade. He was also excited to play recent singles “Annabelle” and “Fossils”.
As far as upcoming tour dates, Chaplin says that he’s working on dates in St. Catharines and Hamilton; as well as shows during Toronto Indie Week in November. Thank you for the invite to cover this event, Sound Check Entertainment and Marlon Chaplin! It was blast.

Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
