  • New Orleans Suspects and Paul and Fred from Little Feat; at the Cabooze (pic link)

    Thanks to the "Krewe of DADs" (with whom I have no affiliation, but really appreciate their taste in music booking), the New Orleans Suspects shared a bill with Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett of Little Feat last night, at the Cabooze in Minneapolis. First set (starting about 9 or so) was Paul and Fred, with a tribute to Lowell George and plenty of their own material. Second set was a full Suspects set. Third set was everyone on stage playing some Feat and New Orleans classics. Short breaks between sets, with "Big Chief" closing the third set and the place for the 2 am bell. Really a tremendous night of music, with obvious respect from the Suspects to Paul and Fred, lots of extended soloing and generally a good time had by all.

    Pictures were taken; a few already posted, as seen at http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantailmedia/10649489835/, http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantailmedia/10649514534/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantailmedia/10659229443/. I was testing a borrowed set of "rep's gear" (that I sell but can't afford;-); after the show I had a brief conversation about cameras with Reggie Scanlan (who is a talented photographer, besides his obvious musical gifts). Hilariously, he'd noticed what I was shooting from the stage, and asked me about it.

    Thanks again to both the Suspects and Paul & Fred for great night, here at the north end of the Mississippi!

      I was at the show and this was (somehow) my first experience with any form of live Little Feat and was very impressed. Great, great show. Thanks for the pics!

        You're welcome, on the pics; always fun to share, and I appreciate when others post links to cool show pics, too! Here are a few more "Feat" pics (from a Mankato gig a couple of years ago) at http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantail...57604247996785, http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantail...7604247996785/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantail...7604247996785/ , and one of Bill Payne and Gabe Ford from a more recent gig at the Dakota at http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantail...57604247996785.
