Yarn, Town Mountain 

When: Sat., July 10, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $8–$10

Blake Christiana formed Yarn after he grew tired of the rootless grind of his jam band, Blake & the Family Dog. He hoped to make actual songs, and he's succeeded on Yarn's three albums, writing music with an inviting pulse, a warm presence and foot-tapping energy. They know restraint, allowing the songs to breathe their mix of traditional instruments and bright pop hooks. It's undeniably catchy roots music, but as sharp and polished as its execution is, it suffers from a crowded marketplace. The slick mandolin and dobro work's admirable, but you'd be hard-pressed to pick Yarn and its threads out of a lineup. With Town Mountain. —Chris Parker
