Spring thaw with Corb Lund in Chilliwack May 8

Corb's songcraft runs the gamut from goth girls to survivalists, bovines to bibles and antique pistols to vintage motorcycles

Corb Lund and guests Harlan Pepper on Thursday May 8 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The honky-tonking Juno winner is on a Spring Thaw Tour.

From rockabilly to western swing, ballads to country-rock with an occasional yodel thrown in, Corb Lund and his three piece band Hurtin’ Albertans are coming to Chilliwack next week.

Country 107.1 and Rock.It Boy Entertainment present Corb Lund with guests Harlan Pepper on Thursday May 8 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The Juno-winning songcraft of Corb Lund runs from goth girls to survivalists, bovines to bibles and antique pistols to vintage motorcycles; exactly what you would expect form a native son of Alberta.

Their latest album Cabin Fever, screamed to Canada’s number one album in its first week.  The album also made the Polaris Prize long-list in addition to receiving rave reviews across the globe from the likes of NPR, Uncut (9 out of 10) and the New York Times who described it as “an album of pithy mischief and roguish charm.”  From the regretful ballad “The One I Left in the Chamber”, the twangy paean to survival “(You Ain’t a Cowboy) If You Don’t Get Bucked Off”, the yearning “September”, the raucous “Drink It Like You Mean It” and the apocalyptic “Gettin’ Down on the Mountain” to the bluesy “Dig Gravedigger Dig”, the wily road tale “Bible on the Dash” and the Betty Page-inspired “The Gothest Girl I Can” and more Cabin Fever delivers a dozen ass-kicking songs.

Tickets are $37.50 (+ sc) at the Centre Box Office or at 604-391-7469 or online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.
