Tweet Exhausted by the blues! But in a most pleasant way. Following Cedric Burnside’s recent show at d.b.a., here comes Lightnin’ Malcolm, playing with the grandson, Cameron Kimbrough, of yet another blues legend! This time we firmly planted our soon-to-be-dancing asses close to the stage and dared to approach ISO 10000 to nail a few shots before the [...]
Tweet Strange Roux’s “brand” is swamp rock, but more than anything, they’re freakin’ haul ass, tear it down rock-n-roll. We were out on Frenchmen to catch a CD release party at d.b.a. when our friend Leigh suggested that we stop by the Blue Nile. Not quite sure what to expect… WHOA!

Tweet Simon Berz (circuit bending and percussion madness) and Dave Easley (pedal steel guitar) carry on the collaboration between Berz and Koenig that turned junk from the streets of New Orleans into music. The performance at Zeitgeist was spectacular and we managed to snap a few shots (damn that loud shutter on the D700) when [...]
Tweet Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcolm are also known as the two man wreckin’ krewe and the nickname is true, in the same sense that R. L. Burnside was a one man wreckin’ krewe. R. L. Burnside cranked out high energy, skull-splitting blues that crossed genres…for example, don’t hesitate to check out A Ass Pocket [...]
