FISHBONE Set for Louisiana Run During Mardi Gras 2012
Legendary ska-funk-punk rockers FISHBONE, a still-rolling live force who were a major part of the inaugural Lollapalooza Tour in ’91 will be returning to Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Lafayette this Saturday, Sunday and Lundi Gras for a three night stomp around Louisiana during Mardi Gras. After seeing their 2:30 a.m. set at Tipitina’s during this year’s Voodoo Experience I’m definitely a convert to what this band can do live and it has been great seeing how much they helped introduce the glory of Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk to a whole new audience on a tour last fall.
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.
