Just got back from the Lucinda Williams show at the Count Basie theater in Red Bank tonight. Great show…most of the new album, plus a few older goodies, a Howlin’ Wolf cover, and a version of “Too Cool To Be Forgotten” dedicated to Joey Ramone.
As if that were not enough, Mr. Elvis Costello himself was in the audience, and when he shouted out a request for “Drunken Angel”, Lucinda called him up on stage to perform it with her.
All in all, this was a classic show. Lucinda’s new band is fantastic and the new album sounded great live. She was even better than at NO Jazzfest.
Anyway…that’s it for now. Bedtime.
