All-you-can eat over at Appel Farms Arts and Music Festival on Saturday, when the South Jersey fields welcome Richard Thompson, Fountains of Wayne, Duncan Shiek, The Klezmatics, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Janis Ian, Danielia Cotton, Slo-Mo, James Hunter, Crooked Still, David Jacobs-Strain, Birdie Bush and Cabin Dogs. So much to choose from. I pick Thompson, and in honor of CBS's nice try whittling down its FCC indecency fine, "Dear Janet Jackson," from the great one's Web site. (Not safe for various commissioners.)
I don't know what good writing about Radiohead is, since their two gigs at the Tower Theatre, Thursday and Friday, have been long sold out. They're opening the American tour here.
