Tuesday, November 27: Whitehorse @ Crescent Ballroom

It's a rare thing to be awestruck by a band. As those of us who write, or attempt to write, about bands know, there's a lot of crap floating around out there that's being passed off as the genuine article. But Whitehorse is a genuine as it gets. This two-piece combo of steel and acoustic guitar, is just plain awesomeness.

This real life husband-and-wife duo pick up where others such as The White Stripes left off. Their latest album The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss is savagely bluesy at times, while maintaining a certain depth lyrically, and an intimacy one would expect, given the dynamic.

They'll be making their way to the Crescent Ballroom on Tuesday, November 27, as they gear up for this latest tour. -- Richard Noel
