Lindsay Fuller

Throughout the nine tracks that make up Lindsay Fuller’s new album, The Last Light I See, the Alabama-born, Seattle-based artist ruminates on dying in bed of mysterious causes, channels Hester Prynne, and generally looks unflinchingly into the abyss. To say the woman is dark is an understatement, but to imply she’s only capable of hitting somber notes is inaccurate. There’s a tender strength and delicate sparkle at play behind Fuller’s Lucinda Williams-meets-Nick Cave funeral dirges. However, tonight she flies solo without her backing band (which usually includes Jeff Fielder and Mark Pickerel), so expect the minimalist, mournful vibe to be on undiluted display. With The Starlings, The Holyfields. HANNAH LEVIN
