Loudon Wainwright III, Dar Williams

When: Sat., Nov. 10, 8 p.m. 2012

"I am older than my old man now/ I guess that means I kicked his ass," sings Loudon Wainwright III on his latest, Older Than My Old Man Now. After releasing 25 albums during the last four decades and trying to bring the ghost of Charlie Poole back to stages, Wainwright has become something of a singer-comedian-truth teller, pairing his wit with brutal honesty and sharp insight. Dar Williams' work rounds the same corners, spinning everyday observations into bigger questions about life. Best intentions and simple memories are folded into lovely folk tunes that are as likely to surprise with a clever turn of phrase as disarm with beauty. —Ashley Melzer
