Dar Williams invited more than 200 folks over Saturday night for a spirited evening of songs and stories.
In lieu of hosting at her house, which is in New York, Williams turned the Redmoor in Mount Lookout into a suitable stand-in as she played eight of the 10 tunes from “In the Time of Gods,” and six others with the help of keyboard player Bryn Roberts and guitarist Josh Kaler.
The music was certainly the centerpiece, but it was some unexpected moments that lent the night its homey feel.
To see or not to see the Beach Boys, that is the question.
The band’s 50th anniversary tour plays Riverbend Tuesday amid some of the most conflicting publicity in years.
A recent spate of stories centers on the somewhat shaky rapprochement of Brian Wilson, the fragile creative genius behind the band’s legendary music, and his cousin, singer Mike Love, who has kept the flame alive while Wilson battled demons and band lost original members Dennis and Carl Wilson, Brian’s brothers.
