Loudon Wainwright III has produced so many musical progeny that perhaps they should start crossbreeding him. Brooklyn’s Lucy Wainwright Roche (the daughter of Wainwright and singer Suzzy Roche) has a lovely voice and a talent for soft acoustic arrangements. Last year she released a self-titled debut full of introspective travel songs (“i-35,” “Statesville”) and dueted with Ira Glass on a cover of Elliot Smith’s “Say Yes.” Tonight at the Highline Ballroom, she celebrates her 30th birthday.
