Options July 17, 2010: The List
The summer is filled with free outdoor music. Hard to beat. I made a list of shows I want to see & sent it around to friends. Today's show is based, mostly, on that list. I already saw some cool stuff-- Tinariwen, Bobby Sanabria, Greg Ribot-- but the two best were Rosanne Cash at Governor's Island and Ben Vaughn at Maxwell's. Stay tuned for a taste.
