Like most artists tooling through town, alt-country crooner Lucinda Williams has a new album she’ll be promoting over two nights at the Fillmore, Nov. 19 and 20.
And it’s one of her best, co-produced by Don Was, featuring guest stars like Elvis Costello, Matthew Sweet and Greg Leisz, and also an updated version of “Kiss Like Your Kiss,” whose first Grammy-nominated version recently appeared on “True Blood: Music From The HBO Original Series, Vol. 2.”
And the deluxe version includes a collectible bonus disc, “The Kitchen Tapes,” the kitchen-table-tracked demos that would go on to become “Blessed.” Perfect for the Williams completist.
But the three-time Grammy winner’s two Fillmore gigs aren’t exactly pushing new product.
The first night, the 19th, is divided into two sets. The first: Songs from her extensive catalog. The Second: Songs dedicated to, and inspired by, the Occupy Wall Street protests, including covers and originals.
Night Two, the 20th, will be a much different two-part experience. The first set: Williams will perform her definitive classic “Car Wheels On A Gravel Road” in its entirety. The second: Another run through her catalog’s greatest hits.
Completists, of course, will want to attend both.
