Jazz Fest Moments: Recent Favorites

Tweet To kick off our coverage of the 2014 Jazz and Heritage Festival, we offer some visual highlights of our favorite moments at recent Jazz Fests.  See you on the grounds this weekend and next!   The Wayne Shorter Quartet, featuring Damilo Perez, John Patitucci, and Brian Blade, perform at the 2013 Jazz and Heritage […]


Lord Dying at Siberia

Tweet Last Tuesday, Siberia hosted five touring metal bands, including Lord Dying from Portland, Oregon. This was the first time we’d seen them, and hopefully not the last. Lord Dying pummeled the audience with bass. It makes sense that they’ve stuck Capuano (bassist) up front, although dueling vocals arrived from stage right (Olson, guitarist/Viking) as […]


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 […]


Best of 2012

Tweet Some of our favorites from shows we covered in 2012:


SXSW 2012

Tweet South by Southwest (SXSW), French Quarter Festival, and Jazz Fest, all past and we’re looking forward to Essence Fest 2012 and Voodoo Fest 2012 (local commitments having deprived of us of a chance to cover Heavy MTL and Osheaga in Montreal this year).  Here’s a more detailed look at SXSW 2012, which we covered […]


New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival 2011 (Second Weekend).

New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival 2011 (Second Weekend).

Tweet All good things must come to an end.  Actually, in New Orleans that’s not strictly true, since the end of Jazz Fest simply returns us to the normal firehouse-sized helping of daily music and festivals, but for non-locals, maybe it is a temporary ending.  In any event, we recount our best experiences during the […]


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 […]


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 […]
