A literal pseudonym: City and Colour, the recording project of Alexisonfire's Dallas Green, is noted for its gentle melodies and often somber aesthetic. The Canadian songwriter visits The Orange Peel on Thursday, Sept. 26 in support of his latest full length, The Hurry and the Harm, released in June.
