Bonnie "Prince" Billy & the Cairo Gang

When: Sat., Dec. 4, 8 p.m. 2010

Songwriter, singer, bandleader, actor, photographer, tastemaker and risk taker: Will Oldham—known throughout the years as Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Palace or Palace Brothers—is a multimedia impresario of indie rock. But his chief fame remains singing songs in a bedrock country voice that hurts so sweetly, and deservedly so; Oldham, like Mark Kozelek or Bill Callahan, can make nonsense sound good. Luckily, his wit and attention to detail as a writer make the bulk of his catalog a poignant mix of melancholy and absurdity. Tonight, he caps one of Duke Performance's best runs yet. —Grayson Currin
