Will Oldham's star has been on the rise for nearly 20 years as he and his eccentric alter ego, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, have built a prolific career in acting, visual art, and music. He's been busy—with a recent New Yorker profile; a role in last year's film Wendy & Lucy; collaborations with Dosh, Tortoise, Mark Kozolek, and countless others; and Beware, a beautiful new album of quirky Americana, baleful country, sly folk-rock, and everything in between. It's a wonder he has time to tour, but he's coming to the Walker's McGuire Theater for two shows. With Pillars and Tongues (8 p.m.) and Begushkin (10:30 p.m.).
