Things are slowing down for the year, but there are a few things coming up on the radar about which you should be aware. Willie Nelson isn't playing the Varsity until January 12, but something tells me you might want to pony up the $85 for the red headed stranger before too long.
Closer on the horizon, the New Orleans Bingo! Show offers the perfectly perverse antidote to the debilitating turkey dope of Thanksgiving with their appearance at the Spanish Moon on Friday. Also, the coolest cat to come out of Church Point, Rudy Richard will be laying down the blues at Teddy's Juke Joint on Saturday. Speaking of Teddy's, his annual Christmas party featuring Lil Ray Neal will transpire on Tuesday; if you have yet to make it out to Teddy's, his parties are a good night to get your blues on.
Also not to miss are indie rock favorites Cursive. Touring behind their most recent album Such Blinding Stars for Starving Eyes, Cursive maintains their momentum of embedding massive hooks inside sweet, melancholy songs, the rock equivalent of floating an iceberg down a stream.
