Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 8.19.10





.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

With her scorched, sexy voice and lyrical bent that is equal parts gritty realism and fatalistic romantic poetry, singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams is an American treasure. She has been hailed as the “female Bob Dylan” (whatever that means) and an heir to such renegade country legends as Townes Van Zandt and Willie Nelson, but forget that: She is one of a kind. Among her many great albums is one genuine masterpiece, 1998’s Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, and her songs have been covered by the likes of Tom Petty and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Live, Williams is a generous and warm performer, capable of charming the pants off an audience with her boisterous playing and lilting banter. She plays The Shedd at 8:30pm Friday, Aug. 20; $33-$43, tickets at www.theshedd.org or 434-7000.
