Few things are as endearing as a married couple in a folk band. And even fewer things are as delightful as 2008’s Hideaway — the duo’s third and breakthrough record. To celebrate the album’s 10 year anniversary, Deb Talan and Steve Tannen will bring Hideway to life. After marrying in 2007 and having three children, The Weepies rarely tour, despite having quietly sold over a million records and nearly 90 million Spotify streams. Plus, they never got to tour this record before. That being said, second chances are pretty damn endearing, too.



The Weepies will perform on Sunday, April 15 at The Magic Bag at 8 p.m.; 22920 Woodward Ave., Ferndale; 248-544-1991; themagicbag.com; Tickets are $27.
