Fred Eaglesmith & the Flying Squirrels, The Fabulous Ginn Sisters 

When: Thu., May 6, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $15

So many songs, so many penetrating lines—such is the catalogue of Canada's roots rocker laureate Fred Eaglesmith. "Water in the Fuel," the tale of a restless trucker from 1997's brilliant Lipstick Lies & Gasoline, is one of the best, and these are some that burrow the deepest: "You wanted to buy that little trailer out on the edge with the money you saved/ It had a carport, a color TV, and no place to turn around." Such is the lot of Eaglesmith's characters, who, to paraphrase another pretty fair songwriter, would be luck-free if it weren't for hard luck. The Fabulous Ginn Sisters open. —Rick Cornell
