IRON AND WINE + CALEXICO
Three years ago, Iron And Wine's Sam Beam entertained the idea of recording with Calexico founding members Joey Burns and John Convertino as the backing band for what would have become his debut record. Due to unavoidable situations, that recording didn't happen. Finally, after much acclaim for both bands, recording for "In The Reins" took place in December of 2004. It's a collaborative affair that features seven Sam originals with the backing of the full Calexico band and vocals by Joey Burns. A truly harmonious affair with equal parts Iron and Wine and Calexico to satisfy fans of either or both. Beam's evocative melodies have earned him a great following. And Beam's powerful songs are a magnificent match for Calexico's blend of jangly '60s-era reverb guitars, soaring pedal steel, mariachi horns and Morricone twang. Special guest opener TBA. Presented by WDET-FM 101.9 and Metrotimes. $20 advance tickets on sale now! All ages welcome, and doors are at 8PM.
