In 1873, three years before Colorado was christened the 38th state, young dreamer Adolph Coors unveiled a Western monument to the goodness of beer: the Golden Brewery. Macho tears flowed as that inaugural batch of liquid magic—oh shit, wait a second. What? The Corrs? Geez, that Dundalk, Ireland, pop quartet? Those three lovely sisters and their sorry-looking brother who mix tin whistles and uilleann pipes into a cheesy synth-pop soup? Kind of like Celine Dion and Davy Spillane necking in the back seat of a minivan? And on the new Talk on Corners (and the “special edition” dance mixes), doesn’t lead vocalist Andrea Corr sound like Swing Out Sister’s Corinne Drewery? Remember the 1987 hit “Breakout”? OK, I’ll admit that the Corrs managed some lovely work on the Chieftains’ new album, Tears of Stone, but wouldn’t we all rather talk about beer? At 7:30 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 815 V St. NW. $15.
