The Malone Brothers at Tipitina's

The last time brothers Dave and Tommy Malone officially played in the same band, it was an outfit called Dustwoofie, which was a Birds and Buffalo Springfield-style country-influenced rock band in residence at the then Bourbon Street bar Judah P.'s Living Room. Tommy was 17 and had just graduated high school. The gig lasted more than a year, but the brothers went their separate ways. Last summer, Dave's career with the Radiators ended when the group retired after 33 years and Tommy's band, the subdudes, went on hiatus. The two talked about putting together a new band, played some gigs in New York and California, flirted with some names (Malone Sharks, Malone Rangers) and decided to give it a try. They settled on a simple name, started writing songs and took on bassist Ray Ganucheau and drummer Erik Golson. While working on more new material, they are playing favorites from the catalogs of the Radiators, subdudes and Tommy's other projects and solo work. They play their first New Orleans gig at Tipitina's Friday. Susan Cowsill and Russ Broussard also perform. — Will Coviello
