Rufus Wainwright Staff Pick Club Concert

When: Sun., Sept. 15, 7:30 p.m. 2019
Blending intellect with humor and wild passion with thoughtfulness, the truly charismatic Rufus Wainwright expands the singer-songwriter realm. On one recent album, Out of the Game, Wainwright writes about his struggles with feeling like an outcast because of his strong classical background. It’s understandable. He’s already premiered an opera back in 2009. And while Out of the Game is certainly more danceable than his previous records, tracks like “Candles” and “Montauk” bring out his classic elegance with stunning melodic movement. Since he’s often simultaneously the smartest and sassiest man in the room, it’s no wonder Elton John refers to him as “the greatest songwriter on the planet.” (Patrick Stoops) 7:30 p.m. Music Box Supper Club.
