Bonnie "Prince" Billy at Walker Art Center in March 2009

Wow, now that's planning ahead. I just happened across this random date on the Walker Art Center calendar and was shocked. First, I'm shocked that Bonne "Prince" Billy is going to be in town for a live show. But even more shocking is scheduling the show for 7 months from now on March 19, 2009. Looks like he'll play two shows, one early and one late. I don't know about you but I can't plan that far ahead.

Here's the alluring description from the Walker's calendar:
Spend an evening with one of the most enigmatic and celebrated singer-songwriters of the last decade. Oldham’s atmospheric art-folk is borne of an Appalachian netherworld finding its glimmer and glow through gentle guitars, lush harmonies, shimmering folk-tronics, and elegies that slide between spare and sly, lovely and lonely, beautiful and bucolic. A rare live performance by one of today’s most prolific and fiercely creative artists.
