  • Benjamin Booker.

Benjamin Booker released his acclaimed self-titled debut album last year on ATO Records — a feat considering the blues- and punk-influenced rock 'n' roller had barely just moved to New Orleans and was finding his footing as a budding singer-songwriter and performer. Booker also toured with Jack White and has been furiously touring since the album's release, which has been on several year-end lists admiring Booker's unique howl and bare-bones rock 'n' roll.

His only New Orleans show since that album's release was at the 2014 Voodoo Fest. On the first weekend of the 2015 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Booker returns to headline two shows at One Eyed Jacks. Booker performs at 8 p.m. Friday, April 24 and at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 25. New Orleans garage punks Babes open the second show. Tickets for each show are $15 and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 23.
