Glenn Jones/Dust-to-Digital In-Store: Wednesday, 6:30pm

We've got a very special in-store coming up Wednesday at 6:30pm, but don't take our word for it. How about Chad Radford's, which was published in Creative Loafing last week? Here's what he had to say: "With his fourth solo album, The Wanting (Thrill Jockey), Cul de Sac guitarist Glenn Jones continues exploring the outer reaches of acoustic folk, 20th-century composition and Krautrock tendencies, all with distinct elegance. The sonic spaces between each resonating steel string (from banjo and guitar) carry as much weight as his droning notes that expand with a mysterious reverence for both the universe and the lineage of acoustic music innovators that came before him (John Fahey, Charley Patton, et al)."

Phew! Thanks, Chad. We couldn't have said it better ourselves. Our friends at Dust-to-Digital, who will be joining us on this day, set up this little gem of an in-store. Glenn Jones has a new album out on Thrill Jockey and helped the D-t-D folks by editing the book on their new and gorgeous John Fahey box. We've got both of those for sale, of course, and he'll be here that evening to play some songs and talk Fahey. Read more about the legendary Glenn Jones here, and mark your calendar. Guitar fanatics: Do not miss out on this one.
