Holy smokes! With the ridiculous number of enticing shows coming to town this spring, you might want to stock up on some five-hour energy and consider getting a second job. Here's yet another show to be completely stoked about: The Civil Wars at the Ogden Theatre on Wednesday, May 23. Barton Hollow was among our favorite records last year. When Joy Williams and John Paul White sing, it's beauty personified. We missed the duo last summer at the Fox Theatre and at the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, so you can bet that we're incredibly excited to catch the act this time around. No word yet on who else is on the bill, but we'll keep you posted. In the meantime, tickets for the show ($26.50 plus fees) go on sale via Axs.com this Saturday, February 4.
