Lucinda Williams Tonight in LA…Special Guest?
Tonight is night two of Lucinda Williams‘ five night stand at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles. Rumor has it that Greg Dulli may be a special guest at tonight’s show, duetting on three songs.
Lucinda will be performing her album Essence in its entirety tonight, followed by songs from her latest album, West. According to her website, CDs from tonight’s first set will be made available immediately following the show in the venue lobby.
Why do I not live in LA again? Well, lots of reasons – but it’s things like this that make me doubt my choice of geography.
Update: (Thanks, Steve!)
Hey, just thought I’d give you the scoop on Dulli’s appearance with Lucinda Williams at the El Rey last night. He did indeed guest for three songs: 1) a duet of “Jackson” — the Johnny and June song, not Lucinda’s own; 2) “Tell Everyone,” with Greg singing lead and Lucinda adding backing vocals; 3) “Real Love,” an unreleased Lucinda song that Greg claimed to have heard her do at a party, and that he said he was surprised to find it cut from her new album. Good stuff all around.
