Concert Review--Cowboy Junkies

Went with Kit, and Mark and Amy, and Bob and Jane, and Becky and her sister, Sunday to the Botanic Gardens to see Canadian country/alternative band Cowboy Junkies. It was OK. If you googel ennui and alternative music the first entry to come up is this band. Not a lot of fire in the belly. Margo Timmins (her brothers Peter (drums) and Michael (guitar and songwriting) are most of the rest of the band) has a good voice but there is a bit of soporific sameness to the songs. Common Disaster is pretty good; and two I can't remember off the new studio album, At the End of Paths Taken, were pretty good. They can't even get the words to their big hit, Sweet Jane, right.

Standing on a corner, suitcase in my hand....

Still, it was a good night.
