Mississippi Blues

We no longer write about music.

But a few time per year we’re stirred to put down a few words on field hollers and such.

It’s one of those times.

If you enjoy listening to old Black men born and reared in Mississippi, and laying down the old truth then please visit.

This is that sitting on the couch getting drunk on cheap whiskey shit.

Al Johnson at Ponderosa Stomp

In a bit of largesse from the promoters behind Ponderosa Stomp, New Orleans locals are being offered a 15% discount on both one and two night tickets for the event (Oct 5, 2017 – Oct 7, 2017).

There’s a catch.

You have to be able to go directly to the Orpheum Theater box office (129 Roosevelt Way, New Orleans, LA 70112) to make your purchase.

The Orpheum’s box office is open from 10a.m.-4p.m. on Wednesdays only. Please call ahead as occasionally the box office does not honor their hours: (504) 274-4870

Michael Corcoran and Tim Kerr’s Mural

Michael Corcoran is putting in the hard work to keep Texans aware of our state’s rich musical history. Recently he teamed up with Tim Kerr (Big Boys) to install a giant mural at the corner of 9th Street and Red River in downtown Austin.

We dialed up an agent in Austin to ride over to the site and take some pictures for this post.
