Local blues fans are in for a treat this week as Paris-based electric blues act Dr. Pickup (formed in France in the ’90s by ex-pat guitarist Bruce Stringkiller) joins forces with local singer/pianist Gary “Shrimp City Slim” Erwin. The two have a series of gigs lined up as part of this year’s MOJA Festival. “For the first time in a lot of years, we’ve been able to be a part of MOJA and bring some blues back into the mix,” says Erwin. “One of the last notable times was Drink Small at the Garden Theatre during MOJA in 1987.” Dr. Pickup, Shrimp City Slim, and singer Wanda Johnson carry on this week with the Blues With Feeling series at Mad River Bar & Grille. Pickup and Slim headline an additional Saturday night at the West Ashley Home Team BBQ. Look at the event listings in the Music+Clubs section for more info. —T. Ballard Lesemann
