Dirtfoot, getting a toehold in Austin, also wins spot on Voodoo Fest, Sat, Oct 27

Originally uploaded by I Am Jones Designs
Matt Hazelton, road vapor still enveloping his head after the Dirtfoot drive from Texas, said, "We made it. We were voted into Voodoo Fest."

Fans will find the Shreveport sextet on the Voodoo Fest schedule on Sat, Oct 27. The event, held in New Orleans' City Park, programs some of the world's best known rockers - Rage Against the Machine, Smashing Pumpkins, Black Crowes, Wilco - against stages with some of Louisiana's best known jazz and funk - Soul Rebels, Hot 8 Brass, Lil Band of Gold, Marc Broussard, Quintron and Miss Pussycat.

More auspicious news from Hazelton and Dirtfoot: "We'll be opening for the Asylum Street Spankers on our next trip to Austin. They have a huge following." And, in a sign o' the times, the Asylum Street Spankers sound a lot like their acoustic cousins from Shreveport.
