PLAN A: The Avett Brothers, Magnolia Electric Co. @ Belly Up Tavern. Among the most consistently underrated songwriters in rock is Magnolia Electric Co.’s Jason Molina, who does a better version of ’70s Neil Young than Neil himself could probably do these days. PLAN B: Dredg, Torche @ House of Blues. They released the best metal album of 2008, parted ways with their lead guitarist and received accolades from virtually every rock magazine in existence. So what does Torche do now? They keep rupturing heads and laying waste to sound systems—that’s what. PLAN C: The Long and Short of It, Same Sex Dictator, Secret Fun Club @ The Casbah. Does AmRep still release new music? If so, can we get them hooked up with The Long and Short of It, so they can set up distribution for CAW: An Unkindness of Ravens? Thanks.BACKUP PLAN: Arizona @ Bar Pink. –Todd Kroviak

Seriously, if you haven’t heard the new Long and Short Of It record, do yourself a favor and pick it up forthwith. We were actually supposed to review it this week, but we had to make room for all those great photos that we received for the photo contest. Also, be sure to read Scott McDonald’s piece on the amazingly talented Avett Brothers.
