The Handsome Family

When: Sat., June 19, 9 p.m. 2010

Brett and Rennie Sparks hail from Albuquerque, N.M. Brett handles the low-blow vocals, and Rennie writes the captivating lyrics. On paper, that might sound good but not great, but the Sparkses spin their tales with care and detail like few others calling themselves country singers these days. By merging the old country ballads of lonesomeness and loss with vivid storytelling talent and a backdrop of American domesticity and alienation, The Handsome Family has created a wide-open songbook for themselves. Don't miss their return to the Triangle —Chris Toenes

Price: $12-$14
