Tonight’s Concert Pick: Buffy Sainte-Marie at World Cafe Live (UPDATE: Postponed)
One of the biggest surprises at this year’s NonCOMM convention was a spellbinding Wednesday night set by Canadian folk icon Buffy Sainte-Marie. Though she built her name in the 60s and 70s on lyrically charged, musically subtle songs like “Universal Soldier,” Sainte-Marie’s new Power in the Blood is a rager, rocking hard and loud with some alluring mystical moments that would not have sound out of place coming from Kate Bush. She returns to the World Cafe Live stage tonight, and if you missed her last week, don’t miss her tonight.
Tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. (UPDATE: tonight’s show has been postponed due to illness. Keep tabs on World Cafe Live’s website for information about rescheduling.)
