Had such a terrific time at the Roots, Rock and Deep Blues Festival at Patrick's Cabaret and Harriet Brewing. I met a lot of great KFAI listeners and very much dug the incredible music of the day. One of my big "finds" was Mrs. Glass—why have I been sleeping on this band? They lead a sweet deep blues set this morning. We also heard new Thievery Corporation, Beach Day (love them!) and Rebirth Brass Band, among others.
Great new music from women this week: Anna Calvi, The Muffs and LaRoux. We also heard Anonymous Choir, a post-humous Midnight Ramble sessions from The Levon Helm Band and Doug Otto and Hurrican Harold have a new live CD out!
