Brendan Benson - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Brendan Benson
Late afternoon, Miami, and Iggy Pop and I were standing watching for a manatee that occasionally swims up along the river at the end of his garden. Pop was bare-chested in cerise trousers, talking about Brendan Benson. "Well you know Brendan," he said, "you how Brendan is, how Brendan sounds..." and as he spoke he waved his hand, stirring the warm air.

He was telling me why he had invited Benson to sing on a track on the Stooges' 2007 album the Weirdness. "I wanted a sweet, clean, effortless American voice on that particular chorus," he explained, as we looked down the river. "And Brendan had the voice."

It wasn't until this moment that I truly realised the Americanness of Brendan Benson. I'd long had him pinned as an Anglophile; heard in the glint of his lyrics, in the texture of his music, the influence of Elvis Costello, the Beatles, Bowie.

The Howling Brothers - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Howling Brothers
Featuring the works of John Hartford, Tommy Jarrell and Blind Willie Johnson, the Howling Brothers newest album "Long Hard Year" also includes nine original numbers. Ranging from swampy, blues ballads to hard-driving string arrangements, the sounds are as smooth as country water and as wild as mountain dew... a true snapshot of the Howling Brothers live.
