CJ Chenier & the Red Hot Louisiana Band 

When: Thu., Feb. 21, 8:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $22-25

Here's a happy accident: Buckwheat Zydeco and C.J. Chenier, no less than the son of the King of Zydeco, were booked to play Duke's large Page Auditorium tonight. But Buckwheat took sick, sending Chenier to scramble for a local gig. He landed naturally at Papa Mojo's Roadhouse, the Triangle's Deep South haven that's owned by Chenier's former roommate and bandmate, Mel Melton. This setting makes much sense for Chenier's music, a sweaty and intoxicating version of Zydeco updated with funk thickness and rock pizazz. It'll be a wild one. —Grayson Currin
