Event description

Description

Rae Spoon sings the lyrics, “I want to live like this all the time” in their music video for “I Hear Them Calling.” The video, which was filmed in response to the trending transgender bathroom bills across the United States, features Spoon donning an over-sized fur coat, surrounded by people who are being unashamedly themselves. Spoon is an award-winning Canadian song-writer and author with a new book: an instruction manual for all musical levels called How To (Hide) Be(hind) Your Songs. Get ready to fall into a musically induced trance as Rae Spoon’s voice reverberates off the walls of Motel, straight into your eardrums. This event is one-of-a-kind.
