The International Pop Overthrow festival culminates in dramatic fashion with a closing set by singer-guitarist-producer Carla Olson and Sheryl Crow guitarist Todd Wolfe. The duo ramble across a dusty landscape of blues, folk and classic rock on their recent album, The Hidden Hills Sessions, which includes a wearily heartfelt acoustic version of the Stones’ “Wild Horses” and a poignantly affecting remake of Blind Faith’s “Can’t Find My Way Home.” In the past, Olson has traded eloquently piercing licks with former Stones lead guitarist Mick Taylor and collaborated with The Byrds’ Gene Clark, and she was a founding member of The Textones, the late-1970s L.A. power-pop group who introduced the world to future Go-Go’s bassist Kathy Valentine. The IPO bill is bolstered by a set from The Cherry Bluestorms, who alternate energetic Beatles makeovers with their own radiant garage-pop original songs. Plus, The Galaxies, The Ex Teens, Anchor & Bear, and Benjamin R.
