The front cover of Portland singer/songwriter Kory Quinn's new album, At the End of the Bar, is an action shot of a typical evening at the LaurelThirst Public House (maybe a little redolent of the Kinks' Muswell Hillbillies). A milling, moving crowd forms a blurry iris around a musician parked on stage, and the album has a similarly freewheeling roadhouse vibe. Quinn's assembled an impressive roster of local talent to play his twanging, beery songs, and the album effectively tells a story of how an impromptu community can be drawn together through the shared act of playing music. Quinn's songwriting is adroit and surefooted, offering sturdily constructed country, folk, and Cajun-tinged songs for his ensemble to really sink their fangs into. Expect that community to be fully evident tonight at the release show for Quinn's At the End of the Bar. NED LANNAMANN
