After releasing a self-titled album earlier this fall, The Weather Station bring their folk-rooted tunes to Boot & Saddle tonight. The project of Toronto-based songwriter Tamara Lindeman, The Weather Station is known for its energetic and forthright yet soft and delicate sounds. The latest release, the project’s fourth LP, is perhaps its boldest yet — though Lindeman refers to it as a “rock and roll” record, it still maintains its laid-back folk vibes. James Elkington also plays tonight’s show. Listen to “Thirty” below and find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.

Usually seen performing as the frontwoman of Metric, Emily Haines can be seen in a different light tonight as she brings her solo project to Union Transfer tonight for an intimate seated show. Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton are on tour supporting Choir of the Mind, the recently-revived project’s first album in over a decade. Listen to “Statuette” below. A portion of ticket sales benefit Planned Parenthood; find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.

Singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III released his 26th album Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet) a few years back, and returned this year with a memoir called “Liner Notes.” The prolific musician and, now, writer is known for his eclectic folk-inspired songs that dwell on real-life subject matter ranging from personal to political. The musician’s daughter, Lucy Wainwright Roche, also plays. Listen to Wainwright on the World Cafe below and find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
