Our culture has come to increasingly appreciate brevity and concision over long-form entertainment. With the advent of MP3 technology, the album has gone by the wayside in exchange for the modern pocket DJ, where we can all command our own compact hits. The “Carpenters of the Forest” event Friday at the Rudyard Kipling capitalizes on this notion that less is more by offering a wide selection of artists who cater to the iPod generation. Local luminaries Carrie Neumeyer, Piñata Me, Eremy Jirvin, Joey Mudd, David Wright, and many others are each playing short singer-songwriter sets ideal for an evening of snack-sized music. From the a cappella of the Sandpaper Dolls to the soft croon of Joe Manning, this low-key evening is especially geared to that cross section that appreciates an economic and easygoing set of performances. —Syd Bishop
