@LMBNOLA: FUTUREBIRDS & J. Roddy Walston & The Business @ One Eyed Jack’s, NOLA 9/13/11
Last night at One Eyed Jack’s the young folks came out en masse to catch a glimpse of two profoundly different takes on Americana and country-tinged rock music. With apologies to New Grass Country Club, who had already finished up their set by the time we arrived, J. Roddy Walston & The Business seemed to leave a lasting impression on the crowd, many of whom came to see the night’s headliners and the chirps were loud from those raving about their short and aggressively impassioned opening set.
Wes and Jimmy from @LMBNOLA will be over at the J. Roddy / Delta Spirit kick-off party tonight at Emo’s. Holler their way at nola.livemusicblog.com if you want to get in touch.
Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and the Big Easy where he helped get Live Music Blog: NOLA off-the-ground, managing it in New Orleans through Jazz Fest 2012. Hodges now lives amongst THE CALIFORNIANS as a newcomer to West LA. His favorite artists include My Morning Jacket, Sigur Rós, Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers Band, Dr. Dog, Tame Impala, Anders Osborne, Radiohead and Bobby & The Midnites.
Daft Punk is actually playing at his house tonight and you're invited.
