We’ve noticed a bit of a trend this summer: Some of the bigger concerts are staying indoors (Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, etc.). We’ll count Tuesday’s Lucinda Williams show at the Egg in this group. It’s not just that Williams is an Egg regular; an indoor listening room can be a nice summer break from the heat and lousy outdoor sound of festival stages.
Williams is up to her usual tricks, touring on a sizable back catalog rather than a new collection. It’s just as well for Williams’ devoted fan base, who will get to bask in this one sans sunscreen.
Lucinda Williams will play the Egg (Empire State Plaza, Albany) on Tuesday (June 17) at 8 PM. Tickets are $35-$55. Call 473-1845 for more info.
