Calpurnia Shares Weezer Cover & Announces World Tour
Vancover-based quartet Calpurnia are one of the latest acts to participate in the Spotify Singles series. The group led by Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things fame recorded a live version of a track from their debut EP Scout as well as a Weezer cover. Calpurnia also announced a batch of tour dates including a handful of U.S. performances.
Wolfhard & Co.’s Spotify Singles installment begins with a different take on “Wasting Time” than the studio version found on Scout. The band then chose a song that has personal meaning for them to cover. “Inspired by Weezer’s triumphant cover of Toto’s Africa, we decided to take on ‘Say It Ain’t So,’ a fan-favourite song on the console game Rock Band. We played that song so many times in the game it inspired us to actually learn how to play it as a band!” said Calpurnia in a statement.
Next up for Calpurnia is a performance at The Phoenix in Toronto on October 20. The four-piece act then heads to Europe for shows in the U.K., Germany, The Netherlands and France between November 28 – December 5. Next, Calpurnia plays a hometown gig at The Vogue Theatre in Vancouver on December 21. 2019 starts for the group with January concerts in Portland (Oregon), Nashville, Dallas, Austin and Houston.
