Toronto’s Cowboy Junkies achieved something really awesome in 2021: an authorized biography called Music is the Drug hit stores in February. Not many bands get to do this. Last time they were going to visit Seattle, there was a snow storm (yes, in Seattle), which led to a waiting time. . . but they returned! Led by Margo Timmins, the band performed songs from their cool career, including the track “My Little Basquiat,” with the words: One day they’ll be older/Maybe bolder perhaps than me/One day they’ll be rising/Maybe living perhaps in peace. Here’s to peace.
