Devin Townsend / Versechorusverse
Venue: St James's Church, London
Canada’s cosmic conjurer strips down
Devin Townsend is a master of the unpredictable.
One minute he’s hijacking the Royal Albert Hall for a night of sensory decadence, the next he’s bumbling onto an austere stage in a parish church with nothing more than an acoustic guitar and a few pedals. VERSECHORUSVERSE , aka the unassuming Tony Wright formerly of And So I Watch You From Afar, serenades the arrivals searching for a pew. You have to admire his enthusiasm, but his busking songs for the new generation are really just killing time.
