Dirtfoot at the Capri on Sat, Dec 19; opening are Lackadaisies, Shreveport band, and Yazoo Shakes, Memphis group
$10 Cover - 21+
Writes J Bratlie, "Dirtfoot wants everyone to have a great Christmas and do some good for those in need, so we've partnered with the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank to raise much needed canned goods for the less fortunate. For every can you bring, you will get $1 off the ticket price (up to 4 cans per person). Also, the bar will be offering a free Jello Shot (christmas flavor of course) for everyone that shows up before 11:00pm to help get the night started right. Dirtfoot will be featuring new songs, along with a brand new TShirt and giveaways all night long.
We're also pleased to be bringing in a sonic wonder from Memphis TN, The Yazoo Shakes.
"The Shakes specialize in a gypsy-gusto sound that's propelled by minor chords and a Southern shuffle. Mixing culinary, movie, and musical metaphors, the Shakes' repertoire is the aural equivalent of the spicy ramen served up in Tampopo combined with the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink attitude of Babette's Feast. If you're a fan of Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, the Squirrel Nut Zippers, or the Asylum Street Spankers, your ears will never go hungry again." Andria Lisle, The Memphis Flyer, June 4-10, 2009
To open the night is Shreveport's own The Lackadaisies. This local group has some great things going for them and are an up and coming band on the Shreveport scene.
Don't miss this night of great music, and help some people at this most important time of year"
