Lucinda Williams will make her nearly annual trip to the Pageant on October 12. Tickets are $22.50 in advance or $25 day of show for GA and $27.50 for reserved balcony seats; they go on sale August 19th at 5 p.m.
Williams is touring in support of this year's Blessed. It's still beautifully battered, like everything she's written, but there's an unusual placidity this time around. It's at its most absorbing on "Awakening," if you're looking for a starting point with the new stuff.
Though of course Williams is working with a catalogue more than thirty years deep. At a 2009 Pageant show, she played 24 songs spanning the whole thing.
