Jan. 20: Lucinda Williams at the Uptown Theatre

One of the most penetrating songwriters of our time, Lucinda Williams, comes from a lineage of poetic eloquence—many know her father, Miller Williams, as a poet of renown, whose gift for words spills into his daughter’s own work. Perennially, poets have a plentiful penchant for Pinot, and Lucinda tends to slip back to the drum riser during her sets to sip from a telltale red Solo cup. But by God, the songs just get better and better. This week in Napa, Williams won’t have a band; instead, she’ll play solo, joined on some songs by guitarist (and show opener) Blake Mills. Her recent album Blessed is a return to form; see her in the most elegant theater in town on Friday, Jan. 20, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 7pm. $50. 707.259.0123.
