The unravelling of America. The show tonight inspired by what is essentially a pretty sad article from rolling stone.com Songs about melting down. Heavy stuff from Bohannons and Drive by Truckers, Eliza Gilkyson. Includes fresh observations from Sammy Brue, prophetic Neil Young from On The Beach, dark, dark, SOngs:Ohia and the genius of Purple Mountains, all lightened up with a shot of Linda Rondstat. (Check how the second verse in Poor Poor Pitiful Me could be a #metoo song). That marathon new Bob Dylan track Murder Most Foul and then some thoughts and prayers towards the end with Cowboy Junkies and Los Lobos.
