2008.10.24 – Lucinda Williams in Chicago

2008.10.24 - Chicago - 05

In late October Colleen and I took a trip by train from Ann Arbor to Chicago to see Lucinda Williams play at the Riviera Theater on the north side of Chicago.

(It was difficult to take photos while trying to not attract the attention of the ushers — Colleen managed to sneak this one.)

The concert was everything I expected and hoped it would be. She was in very good form vocally and the band played even better than whatever musicians happened to have played on the studio version of many of her songs (IMHO).

Weird as this sounds for me to say, given my usual preference for, um, high-energy music, the mix of songs in the set was decidedly more rock-oriented than I expected. But then, I guess it would be impossible to perform in just one 1-1/2-hour show *all* the roots/alt-country songs of hers that I would have wanted to hear, and that I love to listen to over and over again.
