Billy Iuso is an unapologetic rock n’roll troubadour; this dude is the real thing, bad to the bone. The guitarist/songwriter has logged time in a variety of bands, and informed the culture of several regional scenes for over 25 years. A longtime veteran of the Wetlands community of NYC in the 90s, as well as a part of burgeoning areas like Providence, RI and Athens, GA, Iuso has gigged with luminaries and led his own bands, toured in the van and been the tour manager too. A connection with Funky Meters twenty-five years ago put him into the orbit of George Porter Jr., who Iuso calls his Godfather, and a very dear friend and collaborator. A few years later, Iuso put down roots in NOLA and hasn’t left. Happily married to lovely wife Tara, and raising their children in the city limits, Iuso has become an institution unto himself. Leading Billy Iuso’s Restless Natives for nearly a decade now, stints in Porter’s band, as well as Anders Osborne; Iuso keeps good company. Case in point: Billy pals around with Chris “Shaggy” Davis, the NOLA Crawfish King himself. NOLA’s Crawfish King Is Cooking Up A Whole New FestivalB. Getz sat down for a few minutes with Billy Iuso in anticipation of Shaggy’s NOLA Crawfish Festival coming up during the days between Jazz Fest with Iuso, Porter, Osborne, Jon Cleary, Ivan Neville, John “Papa” Gros, Honey Island Swamp Band, and tons of other local favorites.L4LM: How did you start Billy Iuso’s Restless Natives? Billy Iuso: I was watching cats play from the side of the stage, as a tour manager or whatever, and I would be thinking “Man, I’d like to play too…” and my relationships too, all of sudden I was known as a tour manager, instead of a guitar player, so I was like “Man, I did not come to New Orleans to do *that*”, so I got back into it and put together my own band. It was like starting over, so this time, I put my name on it, so I never had to deal with that again, so I never had to recreate myself, no matter what I was doing. “Restless Natives” was going to be a Brides of Jesus album title way back when, I always liked it, it seemed fitting for New Orleans, because everybody seems just a little restless here. The band really took on steam after Katrina, I started the band in 2002, but by 05-06, we really started rolling after the storm. We have a good time, and still are!L4LM: What else does Billy Iuso have going on? BI: Right now, I am actually getting back to doing a lot of Natives, and I also have an acoustic trio, with piano and a drummer. That situation came together through economics, as well as me looking for a way to really play my songs in a softer environment. With my last album and moving forward, I’ve really changed my style and focus back toward songwriting again. But I am always a part of different things, when I’m called I love to just get together and play with people. Obviously, I’ll always play with George. I’m playing with him at the Crawfish Fest, and I do a lot of Grateful Dead stuff, because I always have and I’m kind of known for that. I’m doing a Gravity Dead gig with the guys in Gravity A. at Tips tonight!L4LM: What’s your connection to the legendary Chris “Shaggy” Davis, the man behind the NOLA Crawfish Festival?BI: Ahh yes! I’ve known Shaggy for a quite a long time, we have been real good friends. We both were pretty hard partiers at one point, that was just kind of how our relationship was. And we have both kind of cleaned up our acts a bit over the last few years. He always throws a birthday party every year, and I always play for him on that. Then he started doing these crawfish parties, like over Jazz Fest or whatever, and I have always been a part of that scene ever since. This year he just decided to really blow it up! He partnered up with your boys at Live for Live Music, and it’s quite an event! I’ve been booked for this event for months now, now that it’s coming right up. Shaggy and I discussed it over dinner at my house, he told me he wanted me to be a big part of this, and I’m like “I’m Down!” I already know what to expect, we’ve been doing these for a long time. We already know its going to be a great New Orleans party! It’s at the NOLA Brewery, which is a cool venue, a cool bunch of people who started the company years back, one of if not the first of its kind in New Orleans. As a matter of fact, I’m friends with one of the owners, he had me play at his wedding. It’s going to be a great scene, the family vibe… you know because you’ve been coming here for years, that we have a tight knit scene down here. We all kind of compete, but we all root for each other too. So the NOLA Crawfish fest will have that type of good vibe. There will be a lot of sit-ins, I’m sure, and lots of crawfish, my man, the best in town! By far. I’m actually a little disappointed that Shaggy didn’t give me a sample yet. I really am. I know he’s busy this time of year, and he knows I’m going make up for it that Tuesday and Wednesday though! L4LM: Where can fans find you at Jazz Fest?BI: This year I’m doing a whole lot with my own band. The 23rd at 30/90 on Frenchman, I’m doing the crawfish fest, on Tuesday with my band and then again on Wednesday when I’ll join George, Dave Malone, Terrence Higgins for something very New Orleans, yea man! Thursday second weekend I’ve got a double, with Stu Allen from San Francisco, and Tony Hall, doing some San Francisco meets New Orleans -type covers and styles, and original stuff too. Late night that same Thursday. the Restless Natives will be doing a show, both gigs are at Cafe Istanbul. Gonna do something at the Indian stage one of the days at the Jazz Fest. I think it will be with 101 Runners, I’m pretty sure. I used to be a part of that band. But it’s music man, gotta keep changin! I’m not killing myself this year, but I WILL have some fun. L4LM: Thanks Billy! See you in just a few days! BI: Yea, you right!Tickets to the inaugural NOLA Crawfish Festival are available here.
Pearl Jam resumed their tour with a stop at the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, SC last night, performing another sold out show along their 25th anniversary celebration. The mood in the venue was understandably gloomy, as music fans everywhere mourned the loss of Prince. The uber talented musicians lost his life earlier in the day, prompting many artists to pay tribute to the late great Purple One. His influence in music knew no bounds.Eddie Vedder spoke about Prince, saying “You know, that guy loved music so damn much. He never stopped playing never stopped writing, never stopped recording, never stopped creating.” He then reflects on meeting Prince and Vedder’s shock upon learning about his passing. He concludes the speech by saying, “Prince was probably the greatest guitar player…” before the crowd erupts in applause.After the speech, the band broke into a version of “Light Years.” Watch it go down below:[Via saveyouckufer]Later on in the night, the band played some bars from “Purple Rain” before segueing into “Chloe Dancer”/”Crown Of Thorns.” Watch below:They also ended their show with the song “Yellow Ledbetter,” which featured a breakdown section that again quoted from “Purple Rain.” What a way to close the show! Watch the tribute below:[Via Josh Daniel]Check out the full setlist below:Edit this setlist | More Pearl Jam setlists
Just a couple weeks ago, a new festival called the Deep Roots Mountain Revival announced their debut. The festival was not only exciting for its lineup, which features Greensky Bluegrass, Leftover Salmon, The David Grisman Sextet and more, but for its location, at the storied Marvin’s Mountaintop. The site held the All Good Music Festival from 2003-2011, and the return of great music to the beloved grounds is a prime recipe for a great weekend.Taking place from September 15-18, the festival has made a number of stellar additions. The DRMR fest will see sets from Jamey Johnson, Blackberry Smoke, Corey Smith, Love and Theft, Rising Appalachia, The Marcus King Band, Zach Nugent’s Dead Set featuring Melvin Seals (Melvin Seals & JGB), Russ Lawton (Trey Anastasio Band, Soule Monde), Tony Markellis (Trey Anastasio Band), Vinnie Amico (moe.), and Colin Lenox.Tickets for this inaugural celebration go on sale tomorrow, and can be found here. The full lineup can be seen below, with the exception of a few blurred out names for the festival’s next wave of artists!

Be it music or comedy, theater or sports, one aspect of live entertainment that has plagued fans for years is tickets. For every person who is able to get through on a Ticketmaster on-sale for a major event, it seems there are five more people who get shut out, only to resort to secondhand ticket agencies like Stubhub.With his recent tour announcement, comedian Louis C.K. has shared his thoughts on how to overcome this problem. Not only is he planning to pay for some of the ticket fees himself, but he’s also planning to invalidate tickets sold through secondhand channels. He says that, “either way I’m making plenty of money on the tour.”You can read the full quote from Louis C.K., and bask in the marvel of his ability to sell tickets fairly to his fans. Why can’t all musicians do it like this?!“Most tickets are $50 or less. There are no ticket fees for any shows. My agent worked hard to accomplish this by negotiating in every city and finding venues that were willing to help us make the shows affordable. In some cases, the venues and I are splitting the ticket charges between us so you don’t have to pay it. In the end it’s worth it to me because I don’t want coming to see me to be a painful choice for anyone and either way I’m making plenty of money on the tour. I sincerely hope that everyone takes advantage of this by simply buying the affordable tickets and coming to the shows. For those of you who plan to take the opportunity of the simple and cheap ticketing on this tour to make a profit at the expense of my fans, please note that we are working hard to prevent scalping and that if you resell your tickets at an unfair price, you are risking having your tickets invalidated. Also if you purchase tickets to my shows from Stubhub or other scalping sites, that ticket may not be valid.“If you buy tickets to one of my shows and you can’t go, or you somehow get stuck with them, please contact us at [email protected] and we will try to help you get your money back. If you buy tickets from a reseller and they get cancelled, please contact us here because we probably now have that ticket and are going to throw it back on sale at the original price and you could get it that way. In any case, you can always reach out and we will try to help you.“That’s in America. In Europe and Israel I don’t honestly know what we are charging because the ticketing systems there are very different. It’s taken us a few years to build the relationships we have with the venues and ticket companies here in the states so we could pull this off. Over there we are trusting their system to take care of you.”You can see the full schedule below.Louis CK 2016 Tour Dates:05/17 – Baltimore, MD @ Lyric Theatre (early show)05/17 – Baltimore, MD @ Lyric Theatre (late show)05/18 – Baltimore, MD @ Lyric Theatre (early show)05/18 – Baltimore, MD @ Lyric Theatre (late show)05/19 – Asbury Park, NJ @ Paramount Theatre05/20 – Asbury Park, NJ @ Paramount Theatre05/20 – Asbury Park, NJ @ Paramount Theatre (late show)05/25 – Mashantucket, CT @ Foxwoods Grand Theatre05/26 – Mashantucket, CT @ Foxwoods Grand Theatre05/31 – Chicago, IL @ Chicago Theatre06/01 – Chicago, IL @ Chicago Theatre06/02 – Chicago, IL @ Chicago Theatre (early show)06/02 – Chicago, IL @ Chicago Theatre (late show)06/03 – Chicago, IL @ Chicago Theatre (late show)06/08 – Wikes-Barre, PA @ Mohegan Sun Arena06/09 – Reading, PA @ Santander Arena07/07 – Kansas City, MO @ Sprint Center07/09 – Oakland, CA @ Oracle Arena07/10 – Inglewood, CA @ The Los Angeles Forum07/12 – Houston, TX @ NRG Arena07/14 – Nashville, TN @ Bridgestone Arena07/15 – Greensboro, NC @ Greensboro Coliseum07/22 – Forest Hills, NY @ Forest Hills Stadium08/01 – Milwaukee, WI @ BMO Harris Bradley Center08/02 – Minneapolis, MN @ Target Center08/03 – Omaha, NE @ CenturyLink Center08/04 – St. Louis, MO @ Scottrade Center08/05 – Detroit, MI @ Joe Louis Arena08/06 – Springfield, MA @ MassMutual Center08/12 – London, UK @ Wembley Arena08/15 – Dublin, IE @ 3Arena08/16 – Amsterdam, NL @ Ziggo Dome08/18 – Jerusalem, IS @ Jerusalem Payis Arena08/20 – Copenhagen, DK @ Forum Copenhagen08/21 – Paris, FR @ L’Olympia08/22 – Prague, CH @ Prague Congress Centre09/08 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden09/12 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden
PBS’s animated digital video series Blank On Blank captures historical moments, retelling them through a colorful animation style. For the latest installment of their series, Blank On Blank picked on a 45-year-old interview with Frank Zappa, conducted by Howard Smith at Zappa’s New York hotel room.As we recently discussed, the interview was conducted around the time that Zappa played the Fillmore East venue in NYC, with a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration with John Lennon. Watch that footage here.The interview itself talks about music, the Women’s Liberation Movement, and how women wouldn’t be able to fit in with what Zappa was doing with their music. You can watch the enjoyable animated short, titled “Frank Zappa on Fads,” below.Don’t miss Cosmik Playground’s tribute to Frank Zappa on July 3rd, immediately following Phish’s SPAC performance at the nearby Putnam Den.
