Lots of live music bookings for the month of September have come to our attention recently. Here are a few very different acts that we wanted to help spread the word about:
David Bazan House Show in Highland
Monday, Sept. 10, 8 p.m., $20
The former singer/songwriter for indie rock bands Pedro the Lion and Headphones, David Bazan now tours the U.S. performing songs he wrote for Pedro the Lion as well as new material from a series of solo albums. These acoustic sets are performed in private residences and aren’t your average concert-going experience. Between songs, Bazan fields questions from those in attendance and opens up about his life as a musician, a father and a music lover. He makes his second stop in Highland on Monday, Sept. 10. Only about 15 tickets remain for this show as I write this blog post.
Shooter Jennings, Cody Cooke and the Bayou Outlaws and Black Water Bride at Riverside Warehouse
Friday, Sept. 14, 7:30 p.m., $20
Shooter Jennings may be constantly referred to as the son of music legend Waylon Jennings, but he’s got a sound and a style of his own. Over the course of five albums that vary widely in sound from stripped-down country to hard rock, he’s also built a dedicated fan base. On Friday, Sept. 14, he’ll perform at the Riverside Warehouse in downtown Shreveport, with local support from Cody Cooke and the Bayou Outlaws and Black Water Bride. Tickets are $20 and are on-sale here. It’s worth your time to check out the Riverside Warehouse bookings for the next few months, which include Static-X on Oct. 11 and JJ Grey and Mofro on Oct. 23, among others.
Lil’ Flip at Gigi’s
Saturday, Sept. 15, 10 p.m., $5-$25
Though it’s just beginning to make the rounds on Facebook, I thought I’d share this event featuring Houston, TX-based rap artist Lil’ Flip at Gigi’s Martini Room. Over the course of his 15-year-long career in rap, Lil’ Flip has released eight albums and a number of mixtapes, selling about 8 million records in the process. He’ll perform Saturday, Sept. 15 at Gigi’s Martini Room in downtown Shreveport.
These are just a few of the great shows that seem to be happening everywhere in September and October featuring touring artists as well as talented local acts. Any time you’re looking for live music, we suggest checking the Shreveport-Bossier Fun Guide.
