On September 30, the great American songwriter Lucinda Williams will release her 11th album, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, and it is highly likely that fans at tonight's zoo show will be treated to a few highlights from this forthcoming release. It's also likely that Williams will ravish the crowd with the songs with which she's been ravishing crowds for the past 25 years. The Lucinda Williams Songbook is loaded with many of the best-songs-ever, including but not limited to the best-song-ever about processing a loved one's suicide ("Sweet Old World"), the best-song-ever about needing physical distance from someone you can't live without ("Side of the Road"), the best-song-ever about missing someone while touching yourself ("Right in Time"), and the best-ever use of the past tense in a pop song ("Metal Firecracker").
