John Prine and the Disco Biscuits are coming to the Charlottesville Pavilion

Two big shows announced this morning for the Charlottesville Pavilion. John Prine, whose songs have been covered by everyone from Joan Baez to Ben Harper, will be in town October 16. And perhaps sensing that there was some stiff competition in the category of "best biscuits in Charlottesvillle," the Disco Biscuits hit the Pavilion for an extra-spooky Halloween show.

As the furor over whether to change the format of UVA’s community radio station seems to have subsided for now, WTJU reminds listeners of free form radio’s strong point: its ability to take a sweeping view of the musical landscape, this week in service of the Big Easy. To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, 91.1FM joins the fray with a week’s worth of programming centered on the music of New Orleans. Highlights include:

  • A discussion between Bruce Penner and Darrell Rose about the African roots of New Orleans music Wendesday at noon,
  • Sandy Snyder’s “The Eclectic Woman” show explores the women of Crescent City Thursday at 9pm
  • and Stephanie Nakasian’s “Steph-o-scope” program features the music of one of New Orleans’ most famous tooters, Louis Armstrong.

All this, if God is willing and da creek don’t rise. Here‘s a full schedule.

Do you like your biscuits with jam?
