Home homemade seafood stock, a roux, some okra and shrimp, what's there not to love? It's a little gumbo-y, served atop rice, but we're not judging, we'll just be at the table ready to consume two, or six, bowls of it. It's practically Fall in Louisiana, why not dig into something cozy and hot?

Gary Clark, Jr. is a name you will soon be hearing a lot more of. With a style that mixes the grittiness of The Black Keys and showmanship of Lenny Kravitz, Clark is part of the rocking "new blues" family that was first popularized by The White Stripes in the early 2000s. Only 27, Clark is quickly rising to the top of the ever-evolving American blues genre and was declared "Best Young Gun" by Rolling Stone in June 2011. He recently inked a deal with music industry heavy-hitter Warner Music, and the EP he is now promoting was released last month in anticipation of a brand new LP.
