We hit Whelans (upstairs) this Friday with the wonderful Canadian Alt Country singer, Lindi Ortega. If anyone is interested in catching an early days performance when we are still rusty as hell then come on down. Click here to get tickets for the show.

Here's some info on Lindi Ortega: "With her arresting vocals and unique brand of alt country, a genre she describes as "a roadside motel love affair between old school outlaws and country darlings". The record will be a collection of songs that aims to speak to the desperado in all of us. Be sure to keep an ear out for that sweet vibrato and an eye out for those little red boots because it won’t be long before Canada boasts of a brand new country darling."
