Lou Brutus will make his (somewhat) triumphant return to Green Bay WI as host of The Rock Resurrection Tour on Saturday February 18th 2023 at the Epic Event Center. The tour features co-headliners Skillet and Theory of a Deadman, along special guests Saint Asonia.
Along with acting as emcee, Lou will be backstage conducting band interviews and then hitting the photo pit to shoot the concert. Prior to the music, he’ll be at the Merch area as doors open. You can get a picture, an autograph, and/or a limited-edition Green Bay Packers-themed guitar pick designed especially for the show. This pick will ONLY be available the night of the concert! We’ll have details closer to concert day. Plus, we’re working on having copies of his book “Sonic Warrior” on-sale, too. Of course, you can purchase a book ahead of time and bring it in the venue. Go here to get it on Amazon or just pick up a copy wherever you get books.
This event is now SOLD OUT. However, as many folks are bummed to miss Lou in town, he will be back to host AVATAR with Veil of Maya and Orbit Culture on their Dance Devil Dance Tour at the Epic Event Center Saturday May 13th. We can neither confirm nor deny rumors of a special Avatar-themed guitar pick from Darla the Wonder Dog for the gig.
You can find info and tickets here.
The 2022 holiday card from Lou and Darla has been unveiled! Entitled Rudolpher it’s a mashup of the Revolver album cover from The Beatles and the Rankin/Bass classic Christmas specials. Card art was again done by the legendary Alan MacBain based on the original cover art by Klaus Voormann. Each card has been hand/paw/hoof signed by Lou, Santa, Darla, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
There are a limited amount of cards available. To get one, you must give one! Send a card to Lou & Darla – PO Box 361 – Arnold MD 21012. You do NOT need to include self-addressed stamped envelope, just send a holiday card with your return address clearly visible.
UPDATE: There has been an overwhelming response to the card this year. The initial run of cards is now gone BUT there has been a second printing ordered. If you’ve sent a card already, we should have you covered. However, you may not see your return card until just before or just after Christmas itself.

He’s primarily using his account to post pieces from his fabled collection of concert and music industry souvenirs.

Brutus will be taking time over the holiday season to further organize this collection of ticket stubs, backstage passes, laminates, set lists, posters, guitar picks, and the other music memorabilia. He estimates there are more than ten thousand individual pieces all told. The plan is to present a proposal in January 2023 to publishers for a coffee table book of the pieces entitled One Man – Three Thousand Concerts: The Greatest Collection of Rock N Roll Shit in History. Interested publishers can reach out directly to Lou’s agent in the literary world Bob Diforio of the D4EO Literary Agency here.
