It’s a double-bill old gig roundup post, starting with The Dandy Warhols at the Electric Ballroom. It’s a blurry picture, but then they’re almost as blurry in person. More than almost any band I like they seem like a scam; an evasive formula that’s going to entertain me at least until I figure out the trick. Try Thirteen Tales and take time for the whole thing.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen Richard Thompson playing with a band, and it was a great show. The new material sparkled, the classics are always good and with a band and material that good the extended jams are welcome.

Start anywhere, pretty much. The last three electric albums have been particularly good and best-of Action Packed is a broad cheat-sheet if you like your music extra-modern, but he’s been recording solo material for around thirty-five years now if you feel like a little more range.
