Zath's Album Cafe - "Grievous Angel," Gram Parsons
The last (and best) of country-rock pioneer Gram Parsons' albums was released in January 1974, four months after his premature death in a Joshua Tree motel room from (as they once said of Bix Beiderbecke) "too much of everything." Ahead of its time and too country for Nashville, Grievous Angel's brilliant instrumention and aching harmonies helped launch the enduring career of Parsons' singing partner, Emmylou Harris, and served as a worthy blueprint for the alt.country movement that would emerge in the 1980s and 1990s. Come dance, gab, and listen as DJ Zathras spins this classic of Cosmic American Music.

Dancing Liberally - A Respite
I'm tired of the racial bigotry and unfettered hate eminating from the McCain camp, so let's take a break. I think DJ Rocky the Lost Yak will return to DL, so let's honor him by dressing up in outfits that allude to our favorite albums, musicians, or Dancing Liberally DeeJays (That would be Rocky) Lindens for best outfit. Both Dick! Cheney and I will be wearing our assless pants because, dammit, we're looking for an excuse.

Rev.Paperboy here -- sorry to all who were looking forward to last week's mystery movie, I was shanghaied into some last minute envirovolunteerism (No, it was NOT part of parole conditions). The movies will return this week at our new airborne Marxist-Lennonist den of revolution, which we will officially unveil on Thursday.

I will also be hosting this week's Album Cafe on Thursday at Cafe Wellstone, where we will feature Tom Waits "Heart of Saturday Night"
