Wednesday picks for Aug 10th

It was a fun weekend at Pickathon (with a side trip to Paul Thorn's excellent show at Mississippi Studios on Saturday) ... Mavis Staples was amazing, but I also discovered some bands that were very impressive, including Old Light, Mike & Ruthie (both with gigs in town tonight), Eliot Brood, Joy Kills Sorrow, Grupo Fantasma, AgesandAges, Richard Swift, Fruit Bats, Pokey LaFarge ... and ones I knew who did great sets - Laura Viers, Eilen Jewell, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Pine Leaf Boys ...
