Dr. House Sings the Blues


Dr. House sightings have been plentiful in New Orleans since the man who plays him on TV, Hugh Laurie, decided New Orleans was his "Jerusalem." Laurie traded the cane for the keys recently to record a New Orleans blues album, Let Them Talk. And, what a surprise! You can also see him on TV! On Friday, PBS will screen a "Great Performances" episode that has about the best French Quarter setting this side of Sweet Emma. To provide attendant hype, Laurie has been making rounds on the interview circuit, talking about what New Orleans and the music mean to him. Diagnoses here, here and here.


Little Freddie King's Neighborhood Gig


MARIGNY TRIANGLE- Little Freddie King is New Orleans Blues royalty, but seeking an audience with the King's Court ain't always easy. However, tonight, the legend gets local with a free gig at Iggy's. The small corner institution has pulled out the pool table and put on their party hats to make way for the Man and his Guitar. Fun starts at ten. NoDef will be there. (Touro & North Rampart.)


Burnin' Down da' House


Hugh Laurie is known to Brits as half of comedic legend, Fry & Laurie, and known to Yanks as House, the eccentric doctor on Fox (based on Sherlock Holmes!) Well, soon he will be known to all as "New Orleans Bluesman!" Or, at least he's recording an album of New Orleans Music.
