Louisiana Music Factory in-store performances on Saturday, 5/14

The Louisiana Music Factory was hopping all during the 10-day stretch of Jazz Fest. I caught several acts including a packed house for Anders Osborne. He played acoustic with support from Eric McFadden on mandolin. Now that the fest is in our rearview mirrors, everybody’s favorite record store gets back to presenting live music on Saturdays.

This week’s offerings include Jamie Bernstein at 2 PM followed by Darcy Malone and The Tangle and Cole Williams at 3 and 4 PM respectively.

Of the three acts, I am most interested in hearing the Tangle as I have not heard the current lineup yet. Rick G. Nelson, a musical savant who has worked with the Afghan Whigs, Polyphonic Spree, and numerous other bands in the past, produced their new album, Still Life. The band’s name is quite literal since their sound is difficult to pin down. From their many influences come a “tangle of genres.”

Though Darcy Malone Boye fronts the band with her powerful vocals and captivating stage presence, the group works as a unit by collaborating on the songwriting. The Tangle features Chris Boye on guitar and vocals, Jagon Eldridge on saxophone and keyboards, Glenn Newbauer on lead guitar, Craig Toomey on bass and vocals and Billy Schell on drums.

Darcy said, “Craig and Billy lend a solid pop rock groove, Chris adds guitar lines (that are) completely unique and reminiscent of the style of Clark Vreeland or Television, Glenn adds rockin’, bluesy, catchy solos (and) Jagon adds either new wave funky style keys or jazzy, funky sax arrangements.”


Darcy Malone and The Tangle are playing next weekend at the Mid City Bayou Boogaloo and at the Creole Tomato Fest in June. More dates can be found here.
