This is one of those cases when you stumble upon a great album produced some 10 (or 25 years earlier) while shopping the record store. You take it home and can’t stop playing it for weeks because you're addicted and, let’s face it, you missed your chance to hear the artist play these amazing tunes live when they were fresh in everybody’s speakers. Fortunately, singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams continues to gain fans of timeless storytelling and the way back home to simple, honest expression, and 1988’s “Lucinda Williams” album gives both in abundance. Even better – Williams has decided to tour for the album’s 25th anniversary. Williams heads to Cain’s Ballroom Friday, Sept. 6, where she’ll perform the album in its entirety for her first set. “Passionate Kisses” (which earned her the Grammy Award for best country song in 1994), “Crescent City,” “Side of the Road” and “Big Red Sun Blues” are but a few of the songs you’ll hear, right after the opening act, the Kenneth Brian Band, takes the stage at 6:30 p.m. Cain’s Ballroom is located at 423 N. Main St. Tickets are $24-$39, available at www.cainsballroom.com.
