Lucinda Williams at University of Memphis Tonight 

"In the decade between 1988 and 1998, Lucinda Williams was perhaps the most accomplished pop musician on the planet, if not the most prolific. Three albums, 1988's Lucinda Williams, 1992's Sweet Old World, and 1998's Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, completed a far-too-long and arduous journey from mysteriously underrecognized critics' fave to honest-to-goodness star.

"A subsequent trio of records, completed by this year's West, has proven Williams to be an artist different from the one she was before the gold rush of Car Wheels. ..." So begins music editor Chris Herrington's take on rock icon Lucinda Williams in this week's Flyer.

To create your own take, check out Williams at the Michael Rose Theatre at the U of M tonight. Call 575-1515 and lay down your $30 if they're not sold out yet.
