The Million Dollar Unicorn Show
We Did it! We Hit the One Million Mark in Ticket Sales!
In 2017, we began matching artists with willing hosts of all kinds of space - homes, businesses, public spaces, actual performance venues - and created connective shows. In 2020, we pivoted within a week of shutting down our in-person shows to online shows, first honing the interactive shows, integrating Zoom, and now introducing high-quality broadcast shows, integrating Vimeo.
In case you haven't heard, we're celebrating this tremendous milestone after a year of crazy growth with The Million Dollar Unicorn Show on January 31. Tickets are $20, with all the proceeds going to the Unison Benevolent Fund.
Our co-founder and CEO, Laura Simpson, is hand-booking this show, and today, she’s announcing our first two Artists!
Press play to get the full announcement and to hear the backstory from Laura on the connection these two artists have to Side Door.
Stay tuned as we continue to reveal more artists in the coming weeks. We can’t wait to see you at the show!
Legere is a genre-hopping, multidisciplinary artist situated in Halifax/Kjipuktuk. Honest, charming and open-hearted, his songs are lovingly crafted with vivid storytelling and luscious harmonies. His performances have been presented at festivals across Canada & UK. He also composes music & sound for theatre & film. An avid & passionate collaborator, his work is fascinated w/ vulnerability, sexuality, intimacy, the destruction of persona and the celebration of performance.
Since her solo debut in 2018, Nova Scotian funeral director-turned-songwriter Terra Spencer has charmed audiences in the Maritimes, Ontario, the UK, and Europe with her onstage ease and humour, honest voice, fingerstyle guitar and church bench piano. Showcased on her acclaimed 2019 debut album Other People’s Lives and recent release Chasing Rabbits, Terra’s uncanny knack for crafting intimate storytelling songs has caught the attention of mentors and collaborators like David Francey and Dave Gunning. To see her play is to sit knee-to-knee with her, in a room of 5 or 500. “The real deal.” - Ron Sexsmith
