When it comes to the "warm-up band" — some of you might be in the habit of lingering a the bar for an extra drink — just to avoid hearing them. But singer/songwriter Melissa Ferrick, who teaches songwriting at the Berklee College of Music, says you need to rethink that.  In today's ARTery segment, Ferrick tells us about a local band worth our time, The Western Den.  They will open for Ferrick on her next tour, kicking off May 15th at The Sinclair in Cambridge.

Guest

Melissa Ferrick, Singer/Songwriter and Professor at Berklee College of Music.  Her new album is "The Truth Is"
