Carl’s living room means we listen to vinyl LP tracks played in real time on a turntable. There is a mix of older and new tracks, and even new artists covering old tracks, such as show opener Helado Negro covering Bowie. Then there are old artists doing songs they wrote that were covered to greater acclaim by other artists, such as The Nerves, who were covered by Blondie. A few Boston bands appear: Vitamin and November Group. Names popular from other groups would be Robert Wyatt (Soft Machine), Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees), Wilko Johnson (Dr Feelgood), Dave Davies (The Kinks), Luke Haines (Autuers) and Peter Buck (REM).
