She's also eschewed the typical religious and political themes of her earlier work to tell more personal (and widely varied) tales of aging, as well as continuing to explore her interest in sociological experiments. Dar is a storyteller first and foremost, and she has a knack for boiling down stories to three-minute songs that stick with listeners for hours, and for giving cover songs a whole new meaning. Just listen to her version of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" and it'll all come together for you.
Dar Williams, with Joshua Radin and Jesse Harris. Tuesday, February
