Some Assembly Required, the latest from thinking-man's (or at least NPR-listening-man's) roots rock band Assembly of Dust, features lots of guest spots from folks like Richie Havens, Bela Fleck and Grace Potter. At Rumba this Friday, their expansive slate of collaborators will be stripped down to the essentials: former Strangefolk frontman Reid Genauer and his core crew of festival-friendly folkies. If you liked the sedate suburban comfort of the past couple Wilco albums but think Yankee Hotel Foxtrot's noise curtains were way too far left of center, this blend of bluegrass, country, rock, folk and adult-contempo pop may be up your alley. The ever-talented Bum Wealthy will open things up.
