Golden moments embedded in Antone’s monthlong 47th birthday bash include Lou Ann Barton’s first performance since pandemic shutdown. Where does Jimmie Vaughan’s first-call frontwoman – equally comfortable barking Roky Erickson’s “Don’t Slander Me” as any Lazy Lester swamp nugget – reside at the Home of the Blues? “I started working with the [Fabulous] Thunderbirds … when Antone’s opened in 1975,” she told the Chronicle back in 2017. “Angela Strehli, Margaret Moser, Susan Antone, and Diana Ray were the first four girls that reached out to say hello – and be my friend. Because I don’t think I was very well-liked: ‘Oh God, the Thunderbirds have hired a girl singer.’” – Raoul Hernandez
