will release his forthcoming, Dan Auerbach-produced album, Locked Down, on Nonesuch Records on April 3, comes news that the New Orleans native, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will lead a three-weekend residency titled “Dr. John: Insides Out" at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in Brooklyn, New York, March 29 through April 14.

The centerpiece of the residency is a three-night run of concerts in which Auerbach will join Dr. John and a handpicked band to premiere new music from the album at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, April 5-7. “Dr. John: Insides Out" begins the previous weekend, March 29-31, with a tribute to Louis Armstrong, and concludes April 12-15 with Funky But It's Nu Awlins, a funk-infused night of New Orleans music, featuring key players from the Crescent City.

From March 28 to April 1, BAMcinématek presents a complementary series of films shot or set in the Crescent City. Spanning five decades, the series includes Belle of the Nineties (1934), The Flame of New Orleans (1941), and Down by Law (1986), plus many more.

Tickets for “Dr. John: Insides Out" go on sale next Monday, January 23, for Friends of BAM, and the following Monday, January 30, for the general public. To order then, go to bam.org.
