Mark Lanegan has one of the most instantly recognizable voices in all of modern music. As soon as you hear his smoky, whiskey-soaked vocals, you know he's going to take you on a dark musical journey. After winding down the Screaming Trees in 2000, Lanegan has been rather prolific, working with Greg Dulli in both the Twilight Singers and the Gutter Twins, completing a successful stint with Queens of the Stone Age, and collaborating recently with Isobel Campbell and Soulsavers, among others. Lanegan just released the inventive, soulful Blues Funeral, his seventh solo record. Lanegan has a magnetic stage presence, and hearing him sing is always a special occurrence, so this intimate show at the Cedar should be a real treat. With Sean Wheeler and Zander Schloss.
