Join CAM and the Luminary Center for the Arts for an Evening with Bonnie “Prince” Billy. The man who acts under the name Will Oldham and sings and composes under the name Bonnie “Prince” Billy has, over the past quarter-century, made an idiosyncratic journey through, and an indelible mark on, the worlds of indie rock and independent cinema. With his highly individualistic approach to music making and the music industry—one that cherishes intimacy, community, mystery, and spontaneity—Bonnie “Prince” Billy has become one of the most influential and beloved songsmiths of his time.

Recent projects in 2012 include Now Here’s My Plan (EP), Will Oldham on Bonnie “Prince” Billy (An Autobiography edited by Alan Licht, published by Norton), as well as two singles; Billy F. Gibbons/ Matt Sweeney & Bonny Billy Oh Well b/w Storms, and Dawn McCarthy & Bonny BillyChristmas Eve Can Kill b/w Walkin the Dog. In 2013, Bonnie released a new full length record of duets with Dawn McCarthy on Drag City.

Chicago’s psychedelic drone powerhouse Bitchin Bajas, which features a member of Mahjongg and St. Louis favorites CAVE, will join the bill. Last year, Bitchin Bajas released their latest full-length, Bitchitronics, on Drag City to critical acclaim.
