Tweet Another Jazz Fest, come and gone, and we caught every act that we possibly could, across all seven days. Some of our highlights, along with extensive photographic coverage, below: Day # 1: Standout performance and our favorite act of the day was Gary Clark, Jr. We’ve seen him before (a lot, actually) and performing [...]
Tweet We caught Sexdog recently at both Voodoo Fest 2012 and at the reopening of Jimmy’s music club uptown. High energy, old school punk, New Orleans style. Check ‘em out:
Tweet We’re announcing new prices for our numbered, signed fine art prints. Two sizes are available: $200 for 17×22 and $75 for 8.5×11. These are hand prepared and printed on heavyweight, archival Hahnemuhle paper. Please feel free to contact us for more information, at email@example.com.
Tweet The most expensive show ever at Tipitina’s at $100/ticket and the place is packed. In a town of low-or-no cover charges (great for music lovers, potentially terrible for musicians, unless fans hit that tip bucket–<<hint>> <<hint>>), a $100 show is essentially a once-in-a-lifetime one, and no better way cash in that chance than to see [...]
Tweet Please consider supporting the Kickstarter project for The Gravy: In the Kitchen with New Orleans Musicians. The book includes forty-four first-person accounts from musicians and more than two hundred photographs and digs into the deep connections between New Orleans music and food. Almost every musical genre in New Orleans is represented, including jazz and brass, [...]
Tweet Mardi Gras Indian Greg Perkins sporting two recent Indian costumes he sewed–check out the amazing white spy boy costume from 2010 and his purple suit from 2011!
Tweet Some of our favorites from shows we covered in 2012:
Tweet We were so psyched to see Cypress Hill and summary: the best hip hop show we’ve ever covered. The band delivered just the mix we expected–straight-ahead hip hop, some of their Rusko dub step work, and some of their crossover hard rock stuff. We made our personal preference clear in the previous post, but [...]
Tweet Summary: Cypress Hill. In New Orleans. House of Blues. 11/18. Go. We’ll miss exactly four minutes of this concert–the time it takes to be thrown out of the photo pit after the first three songs, return to our car to stash the camera gear, and re-enter as “civilians”. A lot of [...]
Tweet A very late RIP to Uncle Batiste, a true New Orleanian. No more watches strapped across the palm, no giant Batistian billboards on Times Square (advertising Treme), no more late night wanderings on Frenchmen St, no more Uncle on the bass drum for the Treme Brass Band. Here are a few shots of Uncle [...]
Tweet We’re editing the 10K shots we took at Voodoo Fest 2012 and will be posting photos soon. In the meantime, our favorite shows at Voodoo Fest this year: Friday: Pimps of Joytime Gary Clark, Jr. Die Antwoord Bootsy Collins Saturday: Lee Bains III and The Glory Fires Johnny Sansone (Anders Osborne set) Sister Sparrow and [...]
Tweet The annual (and free) Blues and BBQ Festival in New Orleans always offers a nice mix of local acts we (truly) could catch any day and a few surprising imports. This year, guitarist John Gaar did an fantastic job behind Miss Lavelle White, and Little Freddie King yet again kept baring his (left) sole [...]
Tweet We’ve said all we have to say about Red Baraat in prior coverage, except perhaps that somehow every show is better than the last. Check it out:
Tweet Slash with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators play the House of Blues in New Orleans, LA!
Tweet Pics from the 2012 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival are now in the following gallery. Live (and dance) vicariously through HIGH ISO Music: See you in 2013!
Tweet Africa Brass, an eclectic group emphasizing African rhythms, played recently at Ogden After Hours in New Orleans and we double teamed the coverage. The band’s name pays tribute to John Coltrane’s album Africa/Brass, which is a must have for Coltrane fans: Be sure to catch them and Kora Konnection (of which percussionists [...]
Tweet We caught up with Electric Eel Shock, a three piece hard rock / metal band from Tokyo, at the Hi Ho Lounge recently. We’re somewhat neutral on the strategically-placed sock that the drummer wears (as his only clothing), but this was one of the best rock and roll shows we’ve seen in years. An [...]
Tweet Here are galleries from Wednesday through Saturday of SXSW 2012. Detailed coverage coming soon! In the meantime, enjoy the pics: Wednesday at SXSW 2012: Thursday at SXSW 2012: Friday at SXSW 2012: Saturday at SXSW 2012:
Tweet The lovely Alexandra Scott performed recently at Ogden After Hours, with Sam Craft on violin and Alexis Marceaux on drum, harmonica, and backing vocals, and we were there to snap a few: Be sure to check her out–she has an amazing voice.
