Galactic, the shimmering, reverberating force from New Orleans, brought a new singer to the Crystal Bay Casino March 16, and Maggie Koerner, a 25-year-old powerful soul and hip-hop performer from Shreveport, shined. The Crown Room has so many incredible shows, calling one “Concert of the Year” becomes almost silly. But it is hard to image a better performance than this one before a sellout crowd on a Sunday night. Brushy One String opened the show, then returned for a tune with the headliners. Stanton Moore spotted a fellow drummer up front in the audience and tossed him a stick. A few songs later he gave him another. That’s one cool set.
