This Week in Saskatoon: Rose Cousins, We Were Lovers, DJ Shub

March 6 - 13, 2017

Why are we such suckers for downer music that push us into a funk so deep that not even an endless loop of cat videos can fish us out? Probably because the majority of break-up songs are delivered with such conviction that the beauty can’t help but shine through the murk. And so it goes on Natural Conclusion, where singer Rose Cousins delivers a bittersweet pill so catastrophically intimate that a listener can’t help but be swept up in the tsunami of melodies and emotions and everything else. Catch Cousins on Sunday, March 12 at the Broadway Theatre, but make sure to balance out your music moods with a little dancing at Femfest at Amigos on Friday, May 10, and at DJ Shub at Louis on Saturday, May 11.
