Who: Howlin’ Wolf and Blind Willie Johnson would be beaming with pride if they could see Benjamin Booker setting stages on fire. The New Orleans-based artist made an electrifying debut with his self-titled album last year. We’re talking raw, rapid-fire raucousness with an evangelical fury while banging out Chuck Berry-styled rock.
What: You absolutely cannot pass up the opportunity to see Booker work his magic live, because his live shows are where it’s at – just as fiery and furious as his album, if not more so.
Why: Booker and HV? This is a match made in rock heaven. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Be prepared to be struck by an unyielding energy of pentecostal proportions. Very recommended.
