Lu’s Jukebox


A SERIES OF THEMED LIVE PERFORMANCES TO BENEFIT STRUGGLING INDEPENDENT VENUES

Pioneering singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams’ new six-episode series Lu’s Jukebox will kick off on October 29th. The inaugural episode will feature Running Down A Dream: A Tribute To Tom Petty, featuring songs from his legendary career in celebration of his  70th Birthday. Williams created Lu’s Jukebox to help independent music venues during this difficult time. Lu’s Jukebox will feature a themed set of songs written by other artists and curated by the multi-Grammy award winner.

Other upcoming episodes of Lu’s Jukebox will feature themes that include significant eras, specific musical styles, songs of legendary artists and some surprises. Check out Lucinda Williams’ social media (FacebookInstagramTwitter) for the upcoming episode themes scheduled for November 12th  and 19th, December 3rd, 17th, and 31st. 

Lu’s Jukebox will be streamed, ticketed performances accessed through Mandolin in order to raise funds to assist participating venues through these trouble times caused by COVID-19. Each venue will receive a percentage of the ticket sales purchased through this Lu’s Jukebox link (see list of venues/promoters below). With the touring industry coming to an abrupt halt, many of the beloved independent music rooms are struggling to get by. Many are legendary music halls with rich histories who may have to choose between closing their doors or being bought out by a conglomerate. Either choice would have an immeasurable negative ripple effect for artists, fans, crew members, booking agents and of course the venues, altering the entire live music industry and experience.

Like thousands of artists, Williams cut her teeth and developed her craft by playing in small, medium and large clubs throughout the country, and the world. These venues are vital to the development of artists and their music. Williams has never forgotten her roots, and often performs special shows in some of her favorite halls.
