Music to Eat Boudin By

Bourbon and beer, too

Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats

This month the festivities kick off with the return of the Boudin Bourbon and Beer celebration.  Traditionally the kickoff party for Carnivale de Vin, this event has come into its own over time.  The event, which is located at Champions Square, hosts a spectacular selection of food and beverage as well as musical accompaniment. This year the event is headlined by Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats. After thinking about it a bit, I honestly cannot come up with a better match for this party. Rateliff and company’s brand of Americana fit perfectly in with the vibe of the evening. They will be supported by Langhorne Slim and The Law as well as Kristin Diable and The City. This is an outstanding night of music in the midst of excellent fare and libations. Take the time to drop in on this one.

A bit later in the month we are lucky to have back to back performances from two performers with longstanding careers, deep catalogs and passionate cult followings. On the 13th, Primus returns to The Civic as part of their Ambushing The Storm tour. The band has just released their ninth studio record and first new album of original music since 2011, The Desaturating Seven. These shows are always a visual feast as well as a blend of old and new with a generous side of jams. In many ways Primus stand outside of genre definitions. They are often lumped in with the alt and funk metal scenes of the 90s but their overall catalog is way more playful than those simple labels.In Primus you have an entity that is completely dedicated to creative invention by any means necessary. This mission permeates every aspect of their live shows.  

The very next night (14th) Tori Amos rolls into the Mahalia Jackson Theater on tour for her fifteenth studio record Native Invader. This record has been a revelation. These tracks are meticulously arranged and politically vital. One of Amos’ great skills has always been a mediation between the personal and the public; between the intimate desire and collective need. On this record there is a mournful concern for the state of the world and its impact on our fleeting humanity. This show is not to be missed.
