Southern Comfort


Since being named "America's Best Songwriter" by Time in 2002, Lucinda Williams has become a national treasure, a ragged poet of southern nostalgia and regret. Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, 1998's rumination on childhood and passion, ranks as one of Americana's all-time great albums. Williams' latest CD, Live @ the Fillmore, sums up the past half-decade. She's now on an acoustic tour with her guitarist, trying some new tunes for an album to be recorded later this year. The bad news: Many older songs lose their punch without a full band. The good news: No 20-minute version of "Joy" to drag down the show. This is a rare opportunity to see one of our finest songwriters in a stripped-down and intimate setting.
