LOUIE documentary status – April 2016

Happy International LOUIE LOUIE Day!

It’s been awhile since we’ve shared any status updates on the LOUIE documentary, so here’s a little rundown of what’s been going on…

FIRST of all, the film is still being assembled. Most of the principal photography has been completed, but there are still a few interviews we’re hoping […]

Frank Zappa and the US Navy Marching Band – Non-LOUIE of the Week

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 […]

Hail Hail Girl Trouble! (LOUIE of the Week)

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 […]

Celebrating the life of Steve Mackay this weekend!

This weekend in SF Bay Area, we’re celebrating the life of Steve Mackay!

On Thursday, Feb 24th at KFJC Radio (home of the infamous Maximum LOUIE LOUIE marathon) there was a big 4 hour radio show celebrating the legacy of Steve with lots of music and interviews. We got a chance to hear some […]

a busy week… (no LOUIE of the week)

Things have been busy at LOUIE central. A broken water pipe and an out-of-control tree can do that sort of thing…..

… but there’s always next week…

David Bowie + LOUIE LOUIE part 2 / Les Dantz – LOUIE of Week

Following up on last week’s tribute / celebration / acknowledgement of David Bowie‘s legacy, here’s even more thoughts on his connection within the LOUIE LOUIE universe…

1983 was a very important year for David Bowie. This was the year that David Bowie achieved his biggest commercial success with the release of his “Let’s Dance” […]

Hail Hail M. Dung!! (LOUIE of the Week)

Today, we pay tribute to my friend Mike Slavko, aka the legendary disc jockey known as “M. Dung.”

M.Dung was a very popular disc jockey on KFOG Radio in San Francisco for many years. He had a program called the “Idiot Show” that celebrated the absurdity of rock ‘n’ roll. Rhino Records even released […]

RIP: P.F. Sloan, singer-songwriter

Singer-songwriter P.F. Sloan died on Sunday, November 15th.

Last year, the LOUIE team (myself, Eric Predoehl + Jesse Block, co-owner of the Octalouie.com video production company) had an opportunity to document his performance last year at the Art House Gallery in Berkeley, CA.

His concert felt like a stage version of a documentary- […]

John Doe’s Keeper album – NON-LOUIE of the week

This week, my focus is elsewhere…. not necessarily spending a lot time in the LOUIE universe.. as there’s too much on the plate… too busy working on other projects… and otherwise trying to take care of things in my life. The life of a media freelancer is one that requires very different focus than a […]
