Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy Tickets Now Available for Bloomington, IN Show on 3/12

If you can’t get enough of Will Oldham a/k/a Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, or you missed his Funtown and Old Tarr Distillery shows, you have another opportunity to see him, but this one will require a bit of a drive (about 2 hours).  Oldham will be playing at the Buskirk-Chumley Theatre in Bloomington, Indiana on March 12, 2009.  This show is the first of his tour and only five days prior to the release of his new album, Beware, so I am hoping that he will give a preview.  I’m also pretty excited about the venue.  The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is a recently renovated vaudeville and movie house that was built in 1922.  If the balcony is open, it holds a little over 600 people.  We just bought our tickets, so at least two are gone.  Hope to see you there!

Tickets are a reasonable $15 in advance (w/ $1.50 convenience charge), or $20 bucks at the door. You can buy your tickets online HERE.
