Today, we’ll start a new feature we’ll call “LOUIE at the movies,” which we’ll use to discuss motion pictures that referenced the song LOUIE LOUIE – either with a performance or a mention of the song.
The “Jaco” documentary on jazz bassist Jaco Pastorius is one of the latter, featuring no actual LOUIE performances, […]
I’m very excited about the new documentary that Alex Winter is producing on Frank Zappa.
Would you believe this project is the highest-funded documentary ever on Kickstarter? … and the Kickstarter campaign is ending in 30 hours!
While I may be somewhat jealous, and I am also in complete awe over the fact that this […]
I am in awe of Girl Trouble!
(The band, not the actual concept…)
I can’t remember the first time I ever witnessed the band in concert… whether it was at Marsugi’s, the Cactus Club, Paradise Lounge or maybe even Upstairs Eulipia, but it was during one of their visits to the SF bay area […]
…. but then again, I haven’t heard the soundtrack yet.
What the hey, it IS a catchy name for a movie!

In the LOUIE LOUIE universe, the Animal House movie was […]
This week, we point the LOUIE spotlight at what my fellow LOUIE enthusiasts in the LLAMAS community refer to as a “LOUIE Mutant” or a “LOUIE Clone” – a song that isn’t technically LOUIE, but one contains so much in common with LOUIE LOUIE that it feels like a blood relative.
