COWBOY JUNKIES

Cowboy Junkies are remembered by most people for their 1988 cover of the Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane,” which later showed up in Natural Born Killers. Frankly, it's too good for the likes of Mickey and Mallory Knox and the carnage it book-ended in the movie. And it's unfair to sum up the Canadian quartet’s career with just that one song. The group formed in the mid-'80s by guitarist and songwriter Michael Timmins and his longtime bassist pal Alan Anton. It became a family affair shortly after, when Timmins’ singing sister Margo and drummer brother Peter joined them. Expect to hear songs from The Wilderness, the band’s latest album and fourth release in less than two years, when they play the Kent Stage this week as part of their intimate An Evening With … tour. New cuts like “Idle Tales,” “Unanswered Letter,” and “We Are the Selfish Ones” should mix and mingle perfectly onstage with the Junkies' torchy songbook that's packed with longing, low-fi country and tunes of haunting loneliness. 8 p.m. Tickets: $30. – Peter Chakerian
