Lindi Ortega adds sizzle to country

Ortega plays with Dustin Bentall and the Smøkes at Lucky Bar

Lindi Ortega plays Lucky Bar Feb. 23.

Lindi Ortega just wrapped two great tours with K.D. Lang and Social Distortion and now she’s on the road for a solo tour across the country.

Canadian-born, Nashville-based Ortega will be back in Victoria on Feb. 23 at Lucky Bar. Her new album Cigarettes & Truckstops which follows Ortega’s Juno award-nominated debut album, Little Red Boots, has been getting great reviews since its release last October.

Cigarettes & Truckstops flaunts Ortega’s distinctive vision that embraces the oft-neglected, politically incorrect realism of traditional country and frames it in a charmingly, and sometimes darkly humourous contemporary context.

Ortega plays with Dustin Bentall and the Smøkes at Lucky Bar, 517 Yates St. Advanced tickets available at Ticketweb.ca.
