Alexis & The Samurai continue Chickie Wah Wah residency



Alexis & The Samurai

Continuing the pop duo's June residency at Mid City music venue Chickie Wah Wah, Alexis & The Samurai will return every Monday in July.

The band — featuring killer-voiced singer-songwriter and The Voice contestant Alexis Marceaux, with muti-instrumentalist songwriter Sam Craft — will feature special guests throughout the month. Bonerama's Craig Klein appears July 1; local powerhouse Susan Cowsill appears July 22; and other performers — including members of Ramblin' Letters and Honey Island Swamp Band — will also join. (During the band's June residency, guests included producer and Afghan Whigs and Polyphonic Spree member Rick Nelson and singer-songwriter Alex McMurray.)

The duo also was featured as an artist to watch in Gambit's 2012 music issue.

Meanwhile, Marceaux and Craft also perform in Cajun-French-influenced indie pop outfit Sweet Crude, which made its debut earlier this year and released the tracks "Hornet's Nest" and "One in the Hand" — available to download or stream here.

Alexis & The Samurai's July residency at Chickie Wah Wah (2828 Canal St.) begins 8 p.m. July 1.
