Ontario’s Great Lake Swimmers have been compared to Iron and Wine, Red House Painters and fellow countryman Neil Young. Their performance will include songs from their critically acclaimed third album Ongiara, and works from their forthcoming Lost Channels, named for the passage of water near Canada’s Thousand Islands, responsible for a series of mysterious disappearances. Their music draws equally from roots as it does from rock with banjos, fiddles and peddle steel woven through the resonant songs. The new album, out March 31, marks an expansion of the band’s signature haunting sound, embracing rhythmic tension and increased electricity, both emotionally and musically.

I'm pretty sure the show is only at the Brattle Theater.
