Martha Wainwright came and played two new, beautiful, sad, mad, songs about marriage and mothers, accompanied gorgeously by the All Stars. Marvin Etzioni sang an honest to god love song — hadn’t heard one like that in years! — and a tambourine-thwacking sing-a-long protest song (come to think of it, haven’t heard one of those either). Kevin Avery read from his new book about rock critic Paul Nelson. NEW MEMBER Amy Allison — yeah! — played a classic beauty about rain. Don Piper sent one from China, recorded on his phone. Peter Holsapple sent a drinking song and Peter Blegvad sent Karen Mantler who sang irregular French verbs. Dave Schramm sang of 13 years and Kate Jacobs of 13 year olds. Andy Taub of Brooklyn Recording made everything sound wonderful as usual.
