Show Alert: We gotta Hannah to you

Hannah Georgas
Thurs., Jan. 31
The Pike Room ~ The Crofoot, Pontiac
W/ Decades and Mountain Babies

In the States, you may only know Hannah as that voice in a 2009 Walmart commercial.

She wasn't a whole lot better known in Canada then, either.

"This girl named Hannah was supposed to open for Said The Whale when they released their album nationally at the Phog Lounge (in Windsor)," recalled co-owner Tom Lucier. "I was like, 'Who? Oh, okay if Said The Whale thinks so.' And then she opened with Said The Whale as her backing band and she tore the fucking roof off the place. It was easily one of my top five favourite shows of all time."

We saw Georgas when she returned to the Phog Lounge in 2010; it made our top shows that year. In 2011 she was nominated for two Juno Awards,“Best New Artist of the Year” and “Songwriter of the Year.” Still not convinced you should make the trip to Pontiac on Thursday? CBC Radio 3 listeners voted Georgas "Hottest Pipes" for "Robotic," from her new self-titled album.
