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.
