AMERICAN ROUTES LIVE! THE METERS, DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS, AND BATON ROUGE BLUES FESTIVAL

Time for some "Fire on the Bayou" at a rare reunion of New Orleans' funk jam band and studio wizards, The Meters -- Art Neville, keyboards; Leo Nocentelli, guitar; Zigaboo Modeliste, drums; and George Porter Jr., bass -- on stage at the Howlin' Wolf club. Then Drive-By Truckers, fronted by songmen/guitarists Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood, bring their poetic and critical style of Southern rock a la Muscle Shoals, Alabama to New Orleans' historic Civic Theatre. Finally we roll 80 miles upriver to the Baton Rouge Blues Festival, featuring dapper Mississippian Little Freddie King; Louisiana swamp blues guitarist Lil Buck Sinegal; Creole zydeco accordionist Jeffery Broussard; and Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens from New York. Turn on, tune in and chill out!
