Out This Week 9/9

No doubt, school is back in session this week. In fact, enrollment is up in record numbers! There’s plenty to learn from by the returning upperclassmen: Okkervil River, Calexico, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Portastatic, Emiliana Torrini, Damien Jurado, Tricky, Woven Hand, and The New Year, among many more, as well as the latest project, Boston Spaceships, from professor emeritus Robert Pollard. Others like Common Market, Fujiya & Miyagi, Chad VanGaalen, The Broken West, The Donkeys, and Horse Feathers return with worthy sophomore releases. Beyond that, there are several freshmen upstarts looking to make the grade, like Little Teeth, Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez, and Waves on Waves. It’s time to take out a loan! Check in with your student adviser, Largehearted Boy’s list and bring along a cheat sheet in case you forget!
