Deacon John and the Ivories' tribute to Allen Toussaint
Sat. Jan. 7 | As a young guitarist, Deacon John Moore performed on many hits produced by Allen Toussaint — it wasn't until the 1990s that he released albums featuring himself as a bandleader and bluesman. He leads a tribute to Toussaint at 9 p.m. at Rock 'N' Bowl.

Pine Leaf Boys
Sat. Jan. 7 | The Pine Leaf Boys have become ambassadors for Cajun music, including for the U.S. State Department, which has sent the band on tours of Scandinavia, the Middle East and former Soviet republics. At 10 p.m. at d.b.a.

Sun. Jan. 8 | Released last February yet still resonating, the eponymous debut EP from Baton Rouge's Mayhaps suggests a Red Stick Radiohead that never shook The Bends. Midriff and The Painted Hands open at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Willie Nelson & Family
Sun. Jan. 8 | "Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the trains," Willie Nelson sang in an ACL Live tribute to Kris Kristofferson that aired on New Year's Eve. It's uncertain if "Me and Bobby McGee" will make an appearance at this Family gathering, but here's to an easier trip down I-10. Runaway June opens at 8 p.m. at House of Blues.
