April 9

Cowboy Junkies at Ardmore Music Hall

Canada’s Cowboy Junkies had their biggest U.S. hit with a haunting rendition of the Velvet Underground classic “Sweet Jane.” Over 30 years later, they’ve come full circle with Songs of Recollection, a powerful new covers album that includes David Bowie’s “Five Years,” Neil Young’s “Don’t Let It Bring You Down,” the Cure’s “17 Seconds” and six others. The accomplished quartet’s quiet intensity should thrive in AMH’s intimate environs. Visit ardmoremusic.com
