Loudon Wainwright III, Dar Williams

ROBERT HAM
8 pm., Sunday January 13 | $30.
Aladdin Theater
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave.
 
[PEOPLE WHO DIED] The title of folk icon Loudon Wainwright III’s 2012 album (his 22nd), Older Than My Old Man Now, refers to the fact that, at 65, the singer-songwriter has outlived his father. Wainwright uses that idea as a leaping-off point to explore the simple fact that all of our days are numbered. True to form, he takes on this theme with wry wit (“My Meds” is a lively piano stomper that rattles off the names of the many pills he ingests to keep himself going) and heartfelt sorrow over the recent passing of his first wife, Kate McGarrigle.
