CRITIC’S PICK: The last time through town, iconic Americana artist Williams held court for four days at City Winery, telling stories and sharing songs from her deep, rich catalog. This time, it’s a two-night stand in a venue three times larger. She will likely read from her recent autobiography Don’t Tell Anybody the Secrets I Told You and, of course, play music with her incredible band. Regardless of any past health issues (she’s a stroke survivor), she still sounds amazing — and, of course, her songs are classics. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Lucinda Williams’ music has gotten her through her darkest days. It’s been that way since growing up amid family chaos in the Deep South, as she recounts in her candid new memoir, Don’t Tell Anybody the Secrets I told You. Over the past two years, it’s been the force driving her recovery from a debilitating stroke she suffered on November 17, 2020, at age 67. Her masterful, multi-Grammy-winning songwriting has never deserted her. To wit, her stunning, sixteenth studio album, Stories from a Rock n Roll Heart, brims over with some of the best work of her career. And though Williams can no longer play her beloved guitar — a constant companion since age 12 — her distinctive vocals sound better than ever.
