Lucinda Williams
The quintessential singer/songwriter has an edgy voice that sounds like a soft snarl filtered through a rusty screen door of a ramshackle Delta farmhouse on a hot summer night. Her material rides the border between alt-country and hard rock, but always reverberates with raw emotion and a hint of something deeper going on. Her career has been quixotic over the years, but she’s finally getting the acclaim she deserves. “Passionate Kisses” anyone? With special guest Kenneth Brian Band. The Space. 250 Post Ave., Westbury. $40-$60. 8 p.m., June 19

Free. 7:30 p.m., June 20

Hot Tuna
Hot Tuna teams up former Jefferson Airplane’s Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, who for years have been putting their own spin on rock and roll—either electric or acoustic—that draws deep from the roots of country folk and down-home blues. Looking like a hipper version of Colonel Sanders in sunglasses, Leon Russell is the legendary piano man with an unmistakable tenor drawl, now honored in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, who achieved immortality for his “A Song For You,” with its evocative refrain, “Remember when we were together, we were alone and I was singing this song to you…” A night with these two great acts means a whole lotta pickin’ will be going on, whether on the keyboards or the guitar strings. NYCB Theatre at Westbury, 960 Brush Hollow Rd., Westbury. $39.50, $52. 8 p.m., June 20
