Polaris Prize winner (and, again, 2014 nominee) Owen Pallett brought his In Conflict show to the Imperial Theatre in Vancouver on Tuesday night. Kirk Chantraine was there to snap some pics.
The live dates for the album include Pallett on violin and keyboards, drummer Robbie Gordon and multi-instrumentalist Matt Smith.
Pallett originally recorded under the name Final Fantasy. Under that name, he won the 2006 Polaris Music Prize for He Poos Clouds, his second album. Earlier this year, he and William Butler were nominated for Best Original Score at the 86th Academy Awards for their work on the soundtrack to the movie Her.
Pallett was born in Mississauga, Ontario, in 1979. In Conflict is his second album under his own name, following 2010’s Heartland. He has worked with Arcade Fire and Mountain Goats‘ John Darnielle, among others.
