When it comes to Will Oldham performing a solo set under his musical namesake Bonnie “Prince” Billy, the old “lone-wolf” cliché is entirely approriate. As it will be when he ambles into the Calvin on Saturday, following a tour with collaborator Dawn McCarthy. The two recorded What the Brothers Sang early this year, channeling the Everly Brothers, so Oldham will likely have a few of those tunes fresh on his lips. But, then again, the lone wolf has a long and storied discography (and filmography) so anything is possible. Oldham did star in a Kanye West video alongside Zach Galifianakis a few years back, so shouts for “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” might be indulged.
Bonnie “Prince” Billie will play the Calvin Theater (19 King St., Northampton, Mass.) on Saturday (Oct. 12) at 8 PM. Tickets are $25-$30. Call 413-586-8686 for more info.
