Preview: Dwight Yoakam at the Orpheum Theater

The country singer-songwriter honky-tonks into New Orleans
The range of singers Dwight Yoakam evokes on his latest album, Second Hand Heart — from preserved-in-formaldehyde Mick Jagger ("Off Your Mind") to kiln-fired Richard Buckner ("Dreams of Clay") — spans a time frame as wide and deep as Yoakam's 58 years. Chronology notwithstanding, it seems more appropriate to say they evoke him.

Live Music Events (Sept. 28 - Oct 4, 2015)

Beach HouseFri. Oct. 2 | Beach House boards up the windows for Depression Cherry (Sub Pop), the Baltimore duo's fifth season of accordion lungs and moaning organs, broken chords and broken hearts.

Preview: Ponderosa Stomp

The unsung pioneers of R&B, rockabilly and more at the annual festival
Over its 13 years — 12 more than founder Ira "Dr. Ike" Padnos might have expected — the Ponderosa Stomp has expanded and contracted, relocated and returned; bade farewell to spring and ushered in fall; made a Circle Bar hop from the Rock 'n' Bowl to House of Blues, The Howlin' Wolf and back again. Participants have died and traditions been born.

Live Music Events (Sept. 20 - 27, 2015)

The LandingFri.-Sun. Sept. 25-27 | Co-presented by Tipitina's and Galactic, this inaugural festival is the concert equivalent of a satellite group exhibition curated by a resident artist.

Preview: Wilco

Tweedy and company are the first rock band to play the revived Orpheum Theater
How did Wilco — if not milquetoast, then among the least objectionable rock bands ever — become a lightning rod of controversy and the rebellious wrecking ball of a crumbling industry? It goes beyond Jeff Tweedy's mirror-image career end zones, the extremes of mythologized Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2002) and maligned Sky Blue Sky (2007), but the inner folds of those fortune-shifting origami games are as good a place to start as any.

Preview: Chelsea Wolfe with Wovenhand

The singer comes to One Eyed Jacks Sept. 17
Chelsea Wolfe's middle name is Joy, as in enjoy the irony. The Sacramento-born hellion's label debut came in 2010 with the illustrative The Grime and the Glow; nine months later, she delivered the omen that got her noticed, Apokalypsis, a botched exorcism that nods in multiple directions as it nods off: reptilian metal-molting, dissonant '90s sound gardens, ectoplasmic trip-hop and black-nailed, blank-eyed goth rock.
