Gal Holiday & The Honky Tonk Revue returns to the Logon Café on Thursday, Sept. 21, at 9 p.m. The group was at the vanguard of New Orleans’ now-thriving country scene when forming over a decade ago, combining evocative songwriting, impeccable musicianship, and a twinge of punk sensibility with infectious Western swing energy. “The Gal” is Vanessa Niemann, an Appalachian-born songstress who has lent her powerful voice and magnetic stage presence to various musical projects in New Orleans and around the country.
