On the strength of their carefully crafted folk-pop, The Weepies have quietly become one of the most beloved indie folk bands of the last two decades.

Led by the husband-wife duo Deb Talan and Steve Tannen are, the Weepies are known for their remarkable musicianship, insightful lyrics and distinctive harmonies wrapped up in the whimsical sound of their deceptively complex songs. Through the struggles and joys of their life together, Talan and Tannen have sharpened their skills and honed their focus, and the couple is at the height of their powers.

​The duo will be backed by the musicians who played on the original recording of their popular album Hideaway as the ​band celebrates the album's 10-year anniversary.

Friday, ​May 11 at 8 p.m.
