Lucinda Williams Coming to Town

Americana, alt-country and roots rock singer/songwriter extraordinaire Lucinda Williams will perform at 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, at the State University of Buffalo Center for the Arts on its Amherst Campus.
Val and I have been major fans of Williams since the late 1980s and have caught her in concert many times; one of my favorite times was when she opened for Blue Rodeo at the Tralf, which was an amazing night of music. It is probably no coincidence that neither of us has liked her music as much as on her consecutive releases: her self-titled CD, "Sweet Old World" and "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road," as those highlighted her collaborations with former guitarist/co-producer and ex-Western New Yorker Gurf Morlix.
Tickets will be $35 for the general public, and hopefully we will have much more on her appearance here soon.
