JazzFest All Night: Saturday, May 5
It's Saturday night, and JazzFest bursts out of the Fair Grounds and into the clubs once again. Tonight, The Meters reunite, a legendary British music master plays at the House of Blues and supergroups abound. Check out the full rundown:
Today's Events: 5/2/11
May 2, the day that President Johnson offered a $100,000 reward for the capture of Jefferson Davis, in relation to his being behind Lincoln’s assassination, 1865. Eight days later, Jefferson would eventually be captured by Federal/Union troops. On this day in 1949, Arthur Miller received the Pulitzer for his ‘Death of Salesman’; ironically, Joseph McCarthy died eight years later, on this same day, as did Leonardo Da Vinci, in 1519. Lake Charles, LA’s favorite astronaut Domonic L Pugwill Gorie was born (1957), and Diane Crump became the first female jockey to compete in the Kentucky Derby (1970).
After the Fest, Day 1
During JazzFest there's plenty of music to see, but with the constantly conflicting cubes, chances are high that you'll miss a few. Luckily, there are plenty more shows at night, and most of them feature very special lineups. It's the kind of thing that makes us want to create NOLA music trading cards, or start a fantasy league. In addition to our Fest picks, check in with NOLA Defender everyday during the Fest to see what's going on at night. Click through for today's:
