This Week in Great Music: 8/9 – 8/15

After three days of Lollapalooza, I kind of don’t want to think about music right now. Fortunately for those of us who are sort of burnt out at the moment, there’s not a lot going on.  I’ll be at the Rufus Wainwright show on Friday.  I’m not in love with his new album, but as a Rufus (and Martha) fangirl, I’ll go to the concert all the same.  Maybe I will love the new songs more, seeing them live.
