2012 might just be remembered for NASA sending the Curiosity rover to Mars or Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations or for Michael Phelps becoming the most decorated Olympian of all time. But it will definitely be remembered as the year Gotye’s “Somebody I Used To Know” wormed its way into our collective consciousness, causing us all to emotionally belt out the breakup anthem’s complete lyrics at its mere mention.
If it sounds like we’re being silly, we are. Belgian-Australian singer Gotye performs Wednesday, August 29 at the Stampede Corral, 10 Corral Trail SE at 8 pm. He’ll be joined by opening acts Chairlift and Jonti. Expect songs from his 2011 album Making Mirrors. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.ca. – Adele Brunnhofer
