Festival season is winding down, but that just means we’re faced with the traditional deluge of back-to-school shows, which starts as soon as bands no longer have to contend with the demands (and radius clauses) of big outdoor events. This weekend the Riverfront Theater hosts the second annual installment of Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusements, with circus action and comedy complementing sets by John Cale, Van Dyke Parks, Conor Oberst, Bobby Womack (see below), and others. And there’s lots more where that came from—you can read about four Soundboard highlights after the jump.
