Martha Wainwright @ Le National Tomorrow Night

Posted by Sarah / June 3, 2008

Martha WainwrightMartha Wainwright was born from a family where music is the driving motor of the blood that flows in their veins. Daughter of Loudon Wainwright and Kate McGarrigle (both well known musicians), she is also the sister of Rufus Wainwright. In honor of her new full-length release, she will be performing at Le National tomorrow night, Wednesday June 4th with special guest Jim Campilongo.

Her brand new record, I Know You’re Married But I’ve Got Feelings Too, actually just hit the shelves today. I haven’t had a chance to actually hear the whole thing yet, but it sounds pretty great. So far, I think I like it even better than her previous album. I’m totally in love with her EP I Will Internalize (2005) and truly enjoy the feel of her music. It’s powerful and heartfelt yet mellow and lovely. Even though her music is fit for more mature ears, I find myself connecting with her beautiful lyrics, which communicate a strong feminine voice and slightly cynical poetry.

Wainwright has toured a lot with her brother Rufus, also singing backup vocals on several of his albums including his latest, Release the Stars. She has also collaborated with artist such as Leonard Cohen, Snow Patrol, and of course finds herself playing alongside both her mother and father on their respective albums. It should be a great show. You should try to see it for yourself, but if you can’t make it, you’ll be able to read all about it in a few days in my upcoming review.

I gave up on the last name 'Wainwright' after Adam shut down the Detroit Tigers two years ago. Like I mean Rufus was all cool until he started covering Judy Garland. If I had those Ruby Red Slippers I'd make this Martha phony disappear.

As far as I'm concerned, the only thing poutine at midnight gives me is indigestion.

Tums after poutine usually helps. Though I recommend upping the dose of poutine and steeling your stomach, since late night pout in MTL is a staple.

I pay a quick visit daily a few websites and information sites to read articles, except this weblog provides quality based writing.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have
some experience with something like this. Please let
me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your
blog and I look forward to your new updates.

My brother suggested I may like this website. He was
once entirely right. This submit actually made my day.
You cann't believe simply how so much time I had spent for
this information! Thanks!

Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday.
It's always interesting to read articles from other writers and use a little something from their sites.
