Ubiquitous local guitarist Mike “Slo-Mo” Brenner was this week’s featured Key Studio Session musician. He brought with him the band he assembled for 2013’s Tripti release: Valerie Vuolo on violin, Alfred James Goodrich on cello, Lance Davis on vocals and Hoagy Wing on percussion. The band performs songs from Tripti, along with covers like Dylan’s “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue.” Listen to “Tripti” below and get the full session here.

Australian-born, Philadelphia-based musician Elspeth Tremblay and her band The Satellites played their first official show at World Cafe Live last night.
