The Five Spot: Our five faves of the moment

1 Even as it rolls through 27 different artists — from the reunited Replacements to Lucinda Williams, Jeff Tweedy, Frank Black, Jakob Dylan, Steve Earle, Craig Finn and even ol’ John Sebastian — the lovingly crafted two-CD tribute set “Rockin’ Here Tonight” never loses the wry underdog voice and playful spirit of its subject, Minneapolis rock vet Slim Dunlap. Eighteen of the Dunlap covers were culled from the “Songs for Slim” series of auctioned 7-inch singles, and 10 more are new, including nuggets by Soul Asylum, Chan Poling and members of the Jayhawks. Simply a must-have for local and/or Americana music fans, it’s in stores for $15 or on iTunes for $9.99, benefitting Dunlap’s post-stroke medical care.
