The funkiest man in town turns 65 on the day after Christmas, and to celebrate, he’s hosting his annual birthday bash down at the Howlin’ Wolf. George’s little soirée has become a holiday tradition for many of our friends here at The Infirmary, dating back to the old Howlin’ Wolf (and the post-Katrina Baton Rouge birthday bash at the old Chelsea’s off of Highland Rd). Guests are always a who’s who of top flight New Orleans musicians in town for the Christmas holidays, happy to celebrate with the man that by many opinions, helped father the funk.
The Wood Brothers came into town on Tuesday night and shined in front of a nice crowd at The House of Blues. Here: Oliver Wood jams on Atlas.
Papa Gros Funk held down the last headlining spot at the now defunct River Stage, where so many great acts had played in years prior. Wish I would have known.
Slamming through a 2 hour rock n’ roll set in Marconi Meadows, Neil and his boys left no survivors in their first Voodoo appearance.
Honey Island played a bouncy, upbeat set for the overstuffed Poboy Fest crowd. Here: Chris Mulé & Aaron Wilkinson jam on 300 Pounds.
