William Fitzsimmons charms at the Triple Door | Concert review

William Fitzsimmons played the Triple Door last week.

William Fitzsimmons played the Triple Door last week.

When William Fitzsimmons finished his first song, “Speak,” to open his early show Thursday at the Triple Door, the reverent crowd wasn’t quite sure what to do, so they greeted the release of the somber dirge’s building weight with silence.

It felt like the right response, though they greeted the delicate construction and careful execution of “Beautiful Girl,” which followed the bizarre opening, with the usual satisfying cascade of cheers and applause.

Things have changed in Fitzsimmons’ life since he last played in Seattle. He’s a father now, and he released a new album, “Lions,” in February. However, Fitzsimmons wryly observed that he’s still writing the same old sad songs, so maybe things haven’t changed that much after all.
