Lost Bayou Ramblers with Gordon Gano
Fri. Feb. 27 | Legend has it the collaborative kismet between the Lost Bayou Ramblers and Violent Femmes' Gordon Gano began when the latter climbed onstage at d.b.a. while the former was riffing on "Blister in the Sun." It now includes a recording (2012's Mammoth Waltz) and numerous gigs such as this one. At 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Diana Ross
Sat. Feb. 28 | Defying her own tour title ("In the Name of Love," long since co-opted by U2), Diana Ross can't stop, won't stop. This sequined sequel to her Saenger-christening visit in 2013 is sure to pull them all out. At 8 p.m. at Saenger Theatre.
