Once you’ve nursed your Krewe du Vieux hangover, head out again for some amazing music in town. BB King is at Tip’s, and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion is in town. On this day in 1973, Jerry Lee Lewis made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry. Lewis had promised to abstain from obscenities during the show, but he broke his promise. Now, more to do this Sunday night.

Today, B.B. King teaches us how to blues in Louis Armstrong Park, and Painted Palms join STRFKR at One Eyed Jack's for an evening of electronica.
