4th Annual Ponderosa Stomp

The 4th Annual Ponderosa Stomp takes place April 26 and 27 at the Rock 'N Bowl Mid City Lanes in New Orleans. This year's enticing line-up of R&B, swamp pop, garage rock and rockabilly cats features Scotty Moore (Elvis' Sun Records-era guitarist), Link Wray, Roy Head, Archie Bell, Barbara Lynn, Billy Swan, Blowfly, Lazy Lester and lots more. Ace drummer Earl Palmer will serve as master of ceremonies.

Running for eight hours each day, the Ponderosa Stomp is an Allan Freed-style revue show with short sets and quick turns. The Stomp is sponsored by the Mystic Knights of the Mau Mau, a secret organization "dedicated to the preservation and promotion of sainthood in New Orleans rock 'n' roll." Best of all, you can also do some bowling.

If'n it wasn't happening in the middle of the week, I'd be making my reservations right now.
