Today, Dave Jordan pulls double duty for the release of his new CD, Big History tops an all-night bill at TIp's and A Behanding in Spokane resumes at Allways Lounge. On this day in Louisiana history, Louisiana's Secession Convention voted to secede from the Union and become the Republic of Louisiana (1861). Happy birthday to the late Huey "Piano" Smith (1934), Jean Knight (1943) and, from out Lake Charles, Lucinda Williams (1954). Get on your way to becoming Mr. Big Stuff today with the following:
