January 2012 Live Music Picks

Alabama Shakes - 1/19/12 @ One Eyed Jacks NOLA

With the post-New Years Eve brain fog lifting and the overdue winter chill blanketing the city, it’s time to start turning our attention to all that 2012 has in store. Before Carnival season really heats up in February, right off the bat in the new year, visits to the city by old (B.B. King and Willie Nelson), up-and-comers (Alabama Shakes, Cass McCombs and STRFKR) and the familiar local faces ( record release party and an end-of-the-month appearance of psychedelic jazz outfit NESLORT) highlight a month of music in the Crescent City. Hope you had a Happy New Year, we look forward to bringing you all the live music news, reviews, photos and chatter that’s fit to print.

Recently, Hodges moved on to L.A. where Abita Beer is hard to find, costs about $6 if located and impromptu parading in the streets will most likely get you arrested on the spot.
