Lucinda Williams Joins Margo Price At Empty Brooklyn Bowl Nashville
Price’s setlist on Thursday differed from her show on Wednesday at Brooklyn Bowl Nashville, evident from the opening selection of “Hands Of Time” from Price’s 2016 debut album, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter. Next came “Stone Me” from her 2020 album That’s How Rumors Get Started, which was followed by that record’s title track. Price stayed with tracks from the new album, progressing through “Heartless Mind,” a new arrangement of “Letting Me Down” and “Twinkle Twinkle.”
Price then led her band, which included her multi-instrumentalist husband Jeremy Ivey, through a cover of Janis Joplin’s “Move On.” Following takes on “Paper Cowboy” with Price hopping on a second drum kit and “World’s Greatest Loser,” performed as a trio with backing vocalists Nicki Bluhm and Ashley Wilcoxson and Price on keyboard, Price and Ivey dueted on the title track to the latter’s solo album The Dream And The Dreamer.
The set continued with the full band playing the title track to Price’s 2017 sophomore album, All American Made. An outtake from the That’s How Rumors Get Started, “Long Live the King,” came ahead of Price bringing “Lucinda Fucking Williams” to the Brooklyn Bowl stage.
Williams played electric guitar while leading a performance of “Joy” from her outstanding 1998 album, Car Wheels On A Gravel Road. “This is like the one good thing that’s happened to me in 2020,” Price quipped. “This is the first time I’ve been on stage holding a guitar singing like this since March,” Williams added.
Williams then led Price and her band through “You Can’t Rule Me,” the opening track off Williams’ excellent 2020 album, Good Souls Better Angels. After Williams’ sit-in, Price filled out the set with the Midwest Farmer’s Daughter cut “Four Years of Chances,” a cover of Dee Dee Warwick/Linda Ronstadt’s “You’re No Good” and a closing run through “Hey Child” from That’s How Rumors Get Started sung by Price from the dancefloor.
