Loudon Wainwright III in my opinion is one of the best song writers there is; his songs are intelligent and funny covering many aspects of life but family life in particular. He is also a great performer and is able to entertain an audience with nothing but an acoustic guitar and of course his presence.
I went to see him at the Millennium Theatre in Limerick last Saturday night. During his performance, he told the audience that he was pretty sure that it was at a concert in Limerick about 25 years ago that some drunk in the audience who knew all the words of all his songs kept singing along at the top of his voice and despite being asked to stop he kept it up until some woman in the audience clobbered him with a handbag. A guy in the audience on Saturday night shouted back that it was Limerick, 30 years ago in the Savoy, and the guy's name was ...! The audience cracked up laughing. I don't know if ... was in the audience on Saturday or not but if he was he must have been mortally embarrassed.
All these shots were taken at ISO 3200.
