Rufus Wainwright

Price: $39 - $49

When: Ended 04/13/13

Where: Fitzgerald Theater

Rufus Wainwright has been corralled into a perfect doubleheader by the 89.3 the Current. The always witty, often brilliant singer/songwriter will be part of the Wits series — sort of “A Prairie Home Companion” for hipsters — on Friday, paired with comic Kristen Schaal, best known as the stalker-fan on “Flight of the Conchords.” Then on Saturday, Wainwright will present two hours of solo piano tunes as part of the Current Sessions; the program will include a Q&A with Current DJ Mary Lucia, who might ask him about his stint as a waiter at the now-defunct New French Cafe in Minneapolis. If Wainwright is half as charming as he was last summer at the Minnesota Zoo, these will be unforgettable shows. Jon Bream
