Major threats

Circle: unbroken.

1. We don’t want to overstate the case, but at least right now, on our back porch with a breeze blowing through, Session Americana’s old-timey double-album The Table Top People, Volumes 1 & 2 feels like one of the most loose, spontaneous, warm, and homespun acts of community and decency since the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s Will the Circle Be Unbroken. The local country-folk megagroup talks to Jonathan Perry in “Cellars by Starlight” and takes over Club Passim this weekend.

Session Americana, "Froggy Went a Courtin'" (mp3 from Tabletop People)
Session Americana, "Leather Wing Bat (Rough Mix)" (mp3 outtake)

Circle: broken.

2. Just in case you missed Mary Timony's record-release party for Ex-Hex at T.T. the Bear's Place a couple months back, Bradley's Almanac has mp3s of the whole damn thin. Or you could get the fuck off the Web and go see her tonight -- T.T.'s again.

Opening: the Medications, who are on Nike Records. Sorry, make that Dischord Records. Damn, that marketing gimmick is starting to work.

Matt Ashare reviews the Medications here.

Medications, "Twine Time" (mp3)
Medications, "Safe and Sorry" (mp3)

Word to Reebok: Bad Brains could use some bank, duders. Just sayin'.
