The Show
Robomagic Live presents Loudon Wainwright III, with special guest Chaim Tannenbaum.

Born in Chapel Hill, N.


in 1946, Loudon Wainwright III came to fame when “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972.

He had studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University, but dropped out to partake in the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco, and wrote his first song in 1968 (“Edgar,” about a lobsterman in Rhode Island).

He was soon signed to Atlantic Records by Nesuhi Ertegun, and was lured by Clive Davis to Columbia Records, which released “Dead Skunk.

” His songs have since been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others.

In 2011, they were commemorated by the comprehensive five-disc retrospective 40 Odd Years.

Additionally, Wainwright has co-written with songwriter/producer Joe Henry on the music for Judd Apatow’s hit movie Knocked Up, written music for the British theatrical adaptation of the Carl Hiaasen novel Lucky You, and composed topical songs for NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered and ABC’s Nightline.

He has also been performing a one-man theatrical show, Surviving Twin, which combines his songs and the writings of his late father:Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet)–or HGTB(Y), for short—is the 26th album in the long and illustrious career of Loudon Wainwright III.
