Cowboy Junkies


The song that broke the Cowboy Junkies' career - a cover of The Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane" - was recorded in one night with one microphone along with 11 more songs. "The Trinity Sessions" set the stage for a two-decade career during which the Canadian band has rarely strayed from the sparse, languid sleepycore that once presented such a stark contrast to the over-amped grunge era. Singer Margo Timmins possesses one of the prettiest voices this side of Sarah McLachlan - a perfect complement to the band's gently strummed acoustic guitars and brushed drums. The quartet recently re-recorded "The Trinity Sessions" with admirers including Ryan Adams and Natalie Merchant, foreshadowing a bevy of "Trinity" material on the group's current tour.This show is general admission but seats will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
