Martha Wainwright

. February 27, 2013.

"I’ve made this record as a motherless child and as a mother. Two things I had never been before. For me, it is a new beginning," Martha Wainwright recently stated about her newest album, Come Home To Mama. And her voice has systematically carried a reflection of both of those circumstances: she holds a weary longing in her melancholy wail, but her vocals also carry a tender audacity for hope. The daughter of folk legends Loundon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, the 36-year-old heiress to the family throne continues to reinvent her progressively rootsy sound by dabbling in catchy pop, feel-good funk and the dark corners of country. $21. 8pm.
