Good news and bad news for Saturday



The bad news is that the soul legend Bobby "Blue" Bland isn't going to make it to the House of Blues Saturday night for their Juke Joint Jamboree show. The night will go on almost as bluesily, though - the openers, the James Cotton Blues Band, will perform as scheduled and the gutbucket New Orleans guitarist Little Freddie King will open. If you miss James Cotton at the Fairgrounds, catch him here - Cotton has blown his harp for everyone from Muddy Waters to Janis Joplin. The good news is that Peaches Records is reopening this weekend in the part of the old Tower Records space on North Peters Street that's not taken up by the boutique Wish. That's right - a large, mainstream independent record store in the Quarter. We say woo.
