Just a quick note for our Atlanta readers: Since opening in downtown Decatur scarcely a month ago, Wordsmiths, the new indie bookstore on the block, has established itself as not just a primo literary destination, but a musical one as well. The killer in-store performances continue this Wednesday afternoon, August 1, at 4PM, when Wordsmiths hosts a free, all-ages acoustic set by baroque pop princess and friend-of-Sufjan, Shara "My Brightest Diamond" Worden. Those of us who saw Shara open for Soof when he played the Fox back in September can confirm that she's a captivating performer with a gorgeous voice. If you can make it on a school-day, this outing is highly recommended.
