This week’s shows

Friday, emmet swimming at the 9:30 club with Don Dixon opening (Dixon produced their third album, Arlington To Boston, along with a number of alternative bands, including R.E.M. and Moxy Fruvous).

Saturday, John Jennings at the Barns Of Wolf Trap with Tracy Grammer opening. It’s billed as “John Jennings and friends”, so you don’t know what you’re gonna get. We went last year and thought maybe members of Eddie From Ohio would show (he’s on their new live album), maybe other members of Mary Chapin-Carpenter’s band (Jon Carroll did). Who else did perform? Sissy Spacek (doing backup vocals for her daughter). Go figure.
