    If you missed our speculation that Will Oldham might swing by local singer-songwriter Shannon Stephens' CD release show during his Free Bonny In-Store Tour, or didn't catch Erin's report on the show here, now there's evidence that not only has Stephens shed her long locks, but Will Oldham, aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, did indeed share the stage with her for a few tunes.

    As reported, he was clearly sporting a trucker hat, but the video fails to reveal Oldham's flip-flops and pedicure, which is just as well--his oddball ad-lib antics are far more interesting at about the 3:10 mark when he makes an improv lyrical change, substituting the tongue-in-cheek line "somewhat good looking" for his part. Here's the vid--footage Stephens calls "pure joy"--of the two performing her powerful track, "Faces Like Ours."
