Lucinda Williams

Last night's Lucinda Williams concert at Celebrate Brooklyn! was phenomenal!

She was raw, and slow and rocking. Her songs convey so much anguish and longing, in such a gorgeous, sad, and truthful way. She is a terrific performer and her band (The Big Six?) was fucking awesome. They really went all out on some numbers.

I've been listening to Lucinda Williams for many years but had never seen her live. Some favorites from the evening: "Foolishness"; "Drunken Angel"; "Lake Charles"; "Joy"; and the haunting "Unsuffer Me".
