Long-running garage/rock/blues/psychedelic/rockabilly band Tav Falco’s Panther Burns came to New Orleans Sunday for a full day of Falco. During the day, the singer, guitarist, and now author read from and signed his new book Ghosts Behind the Sun: Splendor, Enigma & Death: Mondo Memphis Volume 1 at Euclid Records. At night, he and his band played at Siberia with Ken Stringfellow of the Posies and latter-day Big Star lineups opening. Falco worked often with the late Alex Chilton, Big Star’s bandleader.
