Coda: James Blake lives up to the hype; Revisiting original D.C. punks, Chalk Circle; Common is offensive? Are we talking about the same Common?

James Blake soothed our souls. (Kyle Gustafson/For The Washington Post)
As the week started, we were basking in the afterglow of a glorious show by James Blake at the Rock & Roll Hotel. (As well as that review being picked up by Hipster Runoff!) Sharon Cheslow of original D.C. punks Chalk Circle talked to us about “Reflection,” the band’s excellent recently-released album of long-ago tunes, and what the scene was like 30 years ago. Despite some controversy, Common performed at The White House. We tried to figure out why there was controversy in the first place. Two solo performers, two very different sounds: Ramblin’ Jack Elliot and Dirty Beaches . And Adele was pretty good, but she still has room for improvement.
