Cajuns Go Wild 

Yoshi's Monday Night Dancing

Yoshi's new Monday Night Dancing series kicks off with Louisiana zydeco singer-accordionist Geno Delafose and his French Rockin' Boogie band. Delafose's Creole dance music combines Cajun waltzes and two-steps with New Orleans blues and R&B, an update of his acclaimed father John Delafose's more rootsy style. The PBS documentary River of Song declared Geno "a standard-bearer for traditional zydeco ... and he has proved himself one of the most versatile musicians in South Louisiana." Monday, June 25, at 8 p.m. ($16) and 10 p.m. ($10). Yoshis.com
