The 15 Bands I'm (not really) Starting In 2017

PRESENTED ON FEB 03, 2017
IN BATON ROUGE @ VOL 3

There is a lot of great music in Baton Rouge. However, Matt Sigur thinks there is one thing missing — him. So, new year, new band(s). He's starting so many huge, successful bands to put the Capital City on the map. You like jazz? Guess what he's playing it! Want something even louder? Good, that's more in his range! Like getting your mind blown musically? Get ready, cause that's his plan, to do that over and over and over and over again.

APPLAUD THIS!

We Are BR, but who are we really?

BY MAIDA OWENS
@ VOL 5 ON JUN 30, 2017

Growing up in Baton Rouge and being the state folklorist for almost 30 years, Maida Owens knew that Baton Rouge has low folk cultural esteem, in other words, both locals and non-residents do not hold the local folk traditions in high esteem. She decided to apply her expertise to Baton Rouge’s identity issue and document tradition bearers. She found plenty and she'll share about them here.

Our Band Could Be Your Life

BY LANCE PORTER
@ VOL 8 ON APR 06, 2018

Lance Porter is a music nerd. He has been obsessed with punk rock since 1980, when he saw Devo on late-night TV. (I know Devo isn’t really punk, but I was 10, OK?) His music nerdiness has dictated almost every move in his life, including the cities he chose to live in and the woman he married. However, it took just over 30 years for him to finally get the guts to live out a rock ‘n’ roll fantasy and form his own band.
