In the August 2009 issue of Country Roads Magazine, I have a piece about the singer-songwriter night staged every Wednesday night La Fonda's, an old school Mexican restaurant in North Baton Rouge:
I’ll get to my favorite performer of the night in just a second, but first I must attempt to paint a picture of the evening’s host Louis Lipinski. Lipinski fills the gaps during set-ups with a banter falling somewhere between standup comedian, monologist and beat poet. Normally, an emcee tries for seamless transitions, but Lipinski takes a markedly and delightfully idiosyncratic tack. More on that later.
