The Wooden Sky

Based in Toronto, the Wooden Sky are an indie country-rock band with a fondness, it seems, for wordy album titles. They first made their mark in 2009 with the release of If I Don’t Come Home You’ll Know I’m Gone and followed that up in February 2012 with Every Child a Daughter, Every Moon a Sun. That album was nominated for a Juno in the Roots & Traditional category in 2013.

On Tuesday, Sept. 23 the quintet, which is fronted by Gavin Gardiner, is in town to play a gig at the Artesian. They’re touring in support of their third full-length with the much more concise title Let’s Be Ready that was released on Sept. 2.

Doors are at 7:30 p.m., and tickets (assuming they’re still available) are $15. To give you a sense of what to expect, here’s video from 2012 of the band performing their song “Something Hiding For Us In The Night”:
