Get Loud & Rich at UCLA

November 13, 2009 |  3:57 pm


Good tickets remain for tonight's Loudon Wainwright and Richard Thompson acoustic assault at UCLA's Royce Hall, but if this last-minute update hits you too late -- the gig starts at 8 p.m. -- we'll still have you covered. Check back to Pop & Hiss early Saturday for a review of the concert. 

Loud & Rich is the name the pair has given to occasional joint shows. Folk is really just a starting point when it comes to the two storied singer-songwriters, as both have amassed deep catalogs that explore, bend and play with traditions. They will perform sets separately and together tonight, and below, you can sample the title track from Wainwright's two-disc tribute to famed banjo player Charlie Poole, "High Wide & Handsome."
