4 Post-Krewe of Centaur Live Music Recommendations

I’m stepping out the door to walk as much of the parade route as I possibly can this afternoon, but wanted to make a quick post about some of the great live music shows that are happening tonight. If you’re looking for post-parade fun, there’s plenty to be had. This isn’t a comprehensive list, by any means – just a few that caught my eye!

Engine and the Red River Valley Band at Bear’s
1401 Fairfield Ave., Shreveport
Facebook event link
Listed start time 9 p.m.

What to expect: Creative indie rock from Engine (pictured in the image used for this post) and a sound that “harkens back to the days of the Hayride” from the Red River Valley Band. Red River Valley Band plays covers from “the era of the 30’s to the 50’s,” making them a band that I’ve been itching to see live.

Street Corner Press and Rifle at Fatty Arbuckle’s
Red River District, Shreveport
Facebook event link
Listed start time 11 p.m.

What to expect: Banjos, stand-up basses, accordions and dudes with beards! Seriously, this is an interesting double-bill. Both bands harken back to the Hillbilly musical roots of northwestern Louisiana, but they also connect to more modern acts like The Avett Brothers and Nickle Creek. Highly recommended!

Swamp Fox Theory at VooDoo Cafe and Art Bar
622 Commerce St., Shreveport
Cover $5
Facebook event link
Listed “doors” time 9 p.m.

What to expect: Accessible, emotional rock ballads from Monroe. Something tells me that their live sound must be more uptempo and loud than the songs on their Myspace page.

Flood the Masses with Brother Wolf and Ashes of a Martyr at Riverside Warehouse
630 Commerce St., Shreveport
Facebook event link
Listed start time 9 p.m.

What to expect: A ticket full of homegrown metal that’ll put hair on your chest. Ashes of a Martyr are from southeastern Texas and list Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax and Rush among their influences. After listening to their Reverbnation page for a while, I’m thinking that the Slayer influences shines through…just a bit more than the Rush.
