The 2013 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival

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 […]


Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue @ Lafayette Square

Tweet YLC Presents:  Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue! Trombone Shorty has come a long way, as if that needs saying.  We remember him as a tiny kid, blowing trombone like he was seven feet tall, but now he’s not only grown up, but has played with Lenny Kravitz, U2, Green Day, and others.  His current band […]


Lightnin’ Malcolm and Cameron Kimbrough Kill d.b.a.

Tweet Exhausted by the blues!  But in a most pleasant way.   Following Cedric Burnside’s recent show at d.b.a., here comes Lightnin’ Malcolm, playing with the grandson, Cameron Kimbrough, of yet another blues legend!  This time we firmly planted our soon-to-be-dancing asses close to the stage and dared to approach ISO 10000 to nail a few shots before the […]


Fess Fest 2010!

Tweet It’s hard to write anything new about Professor Longhair (aka Henry Roeland Byrd aka “Fess”).  He’s a New Orleans icon (see?), his piano playing style is unique and yet has tinged the work of virtually every piano player who plays “New Orleans music” (whatever that is).    There are performers who can clearly capture his vibe (Jon […]


Debauche et al @ Bacchanal

Tweet St. Andrew’s Festival @ Bacchanal featured Debauche, a Russian Mafia Band who are purveyors of “Russian Hooligan Songs”.  We want more!  Never has ISO 8000 been more necessary, since the band was essentially lit with Christmas lights.  Check it out: and check out their website and visit their Facebook page.


Simon Berz and Dave Easley @ Zeitgeist

Tweet Simon Berz (circuit bending and percussion madness) and Dave Easley (pedal steel guitar) carry on the collaboration between Berz and Koenig that turned junk from the streets of New Orleans into music. The performance at Zeitgeist was spectacular and we managed to snap a few shots (damn that loud shutter on the D700) when […]


R.L. Lives On++

R.L. Lives On++

Tweet Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcolm are also known as the two man wreckin’ krewe and the nickname is true, in the same sense that R. L. Burnside was a one man wreckin’ krewe.  R. L. Burnside cranked out high energy, skull-splitting blues that crossed genres…for example, don’t hesitate to check out A Ass Pocket […]
