If you haven't checked out Dixie Dirt, tonight's a great chance since they're playing The Basement. Mike Grimes turned me on to them last year, and it's a terrific commingling of influences that pile higher the longer you listen—The Pixies, Sonic Youth, Chan Marshall, Fleetwood Mac. That sounds like a recipe for disaster, but Dixie Dirt make it blend seamlessly, and today's weather is the perfect climate to hear it. Angela Santos' guitar playing alone is worth the price of admission.
