Playlist 9-3-10

Funk from the Meters to start, new stuff from the Vaselines, Les Savy Fav, The Walkmen, The Drums and Ra Ra Riot.

Closed with a bunch of Dave Alvin, solo and with The Blasters; he’s coming to th region this weekend (in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, that is; bypassing Connecticut altogether). And of course a salut to all things Earl and hurricane fin honor of Hurricane Earl, who may just be a no show.
