Zydeco memories anyone? How about Buckwheat Zydeco at the Bethesda, MD American Legion in 1987. Bopping Ballmerians... one of the best shows I've ever gone to.

As this blizzard roles in, I have a feeling this whole day will be composed of lounging in a smoking jacket, consuming hot rum drinks, and listening to the great music on WFMU... Very much enjoying this show!

I visited NOLA over Christmas and at one point was walking around with this Gary US Bonds tune coming through the earbuds
Avatar Sat. 1/23/16 8:37am testingwithfire:

the beauty of NOLA is that someone's always playing something good on their car stereo or in the coffeeshops/bars... no autotune anywhere that I heard
