KATE REID LIVE AT THE FLYING BEAVER PUBARET!
THURSDAY, AUGUST 2nd - 7pm
KATE REID
"DOING IT FOR THE CHICKS"

Like so many musicians before her, Reid really is "Doing it for the Chicks." What else but quadruple-entendre humour, cherry flavored cigars and a hilarious album cover that paints her as a misogynistic femme rapper can one expect from one of the queerest straight-shooters in contemporary music these days. "I'm merely on a divine plan to convert you to the dark side of the bedroom," she sings on the title track of her eagerly anticipated third album. "The music's all just extra-curricular, I'm just doing it for the chicks." It's not for nothing, then, that Reid has recorded Led Zeppelin's cock-rock classic "Hotdog" with a bluegrass-styled hoot, holler and a broad wink.

Given the all-persuasions crowds drawn to her shows, Reid is doing it for the ladies and everyone else with a yen for her fiery performances and rare ability to glide from laughaloud sing-alongs to intense tales about the price some pay in staying true to their own trailblazing sexual identities. Critics have been cheering her on as much as her diehard fans and the new album follows the wave of acclaim that greeted 2009's "I'm Just Warming Up". Indeed, Reid was voted Favourite New Discovery of 2009 by Penguin Eggs Magazine (Canada's Folk, Roots and World magazine) critics, received a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for Best New/Emerging Artist of the Year (2009), a Toronto Independent Music Award nomination for Best Acoustic Album (2010). In the interim she has toured like a flame-haired banshee while nurturing a grassroots audience that now stretches east across Canada and south into the U.S.
