The Boston Phoenix reviews Lucina Williams' show, in which she's way too modest:
“It’s not that often that a 54-year-old woman achieves her greatest success,’’ said Lucinda Williams from the Orpheum stage last Saturday, referring to the trajectory of her career. “It’s about the talent, about the work. Thanks for letting me into the fold.”
The Detroit Metro Times covers the Sebadoh reunion:
Before the band came out, my friend Dave said he was at the show simply to see if Gaffney was a real person. And that comment gives some perspective to how long it’s been since those late 1980s and early 90s days when lo-fi was still this thing that applied to records such as Sebadoh’s Weed Forestin’ or dudes like Daniel Johnston and East River Pipe.
A few new tour dates of note: Bert Jansch will be at the Musuem of Fine Arts in Boston on June 6 and the Bowery Ballroom in NYC on 6/10 (via Brooklyn Vegan); the Innocence Mission will play 6/7 at Club Passim in Cambridge and 6/8 at the Iron Horse in Northhampton, in addition to a few previously announced dates.
At long last, a Bill Callahan download from the upcoming Woke on a Whaleheart, due in April from Drag City.
