Lucinda, Righteously

Saturday night we saw Lucinda Williams at the Orpheum Theatre. In her two-hour set she sang Rescue, Unsuffer Me, Come On, West and other cuts from West, her new release, plus Righteously, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, Joy, Those Three Days, and a number of older tunes. A snippet of pre-show conversation: “There’s so much heartache on her new album.” “Yeah, but she does heartache so well.” Her band was great, but for me it’s all about her lyrics and her sound. Each song is a story in which she can drawl, snarl, or plead in that low, raw voice. “Emmy Lou Harris mixed with Janis Joplin,” in the words of my friend.

  1. Unquestionably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they
    just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and
    also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
    people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks
