Logon Cafe

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.

Owner Ed Grissom says his pub is designed to be a place for people to take a break from the daily grind. “It’s still and always has been, I call it, ‘designed as a diffusion.’ You go out into the world, get stressed out, have anxiety. Isn’t it nice to come into a place and just diffuse?”
