Today, the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience revealed their lineup for the Halloween weekend (10.28-10.30) fete. Tool, Arcade Fire, The Weeknd, The Chainsmokers, Die Antwood, and Les Claypool are just a few of the big names on the 2016 roster.

Runnin' on the River

Rock n' Roll Marathon Returns Sunday (Route, Closures)



Before the debauchery of Carnival begins in full, New Orleanians are taking to the streets for a healthier parade. On Sunday (1.24), the annual Rock n’ Roll Marathon is back in town. More than 15,000 runners are expected to cover the 26.2-mile, 12.1-mile races, and new 10k races. The runs step off at 7 a.m. from Camp and Poydras St. The pounding of the pavement won't be the only sound, however, as a band will be playing on every mile of the course.


Make a Joyous Noise

New Year's Music Rundown



Many New Orleanians were so caught up in the holiday season that they did not even consider what to do on New Year’s Eve. For those undecided, NOLA has lots of music to offer. NoDef’s crack Listings Editor, Ashley Rouen, put together a roundup of all the show’s to usher in the year 2015 with.

Today in New Orleans: 03.06.14


Tonight, local jazz drummer Jason Marsalis wows audiences at Snug Harbor, and the Steve Miller Band is making a New Orleans tour stop at the Saenger. On this date in 1867, General Philip Sheridan arrived in New Orleans to command the Fifth Military District during Reconstruction. Now, more to do this Holy Thursday. 


Bayou Classic Parades Today


The Bayou Classic may be a football game by definition, but devotees know that it's all about the bands. Those who do not have the opportunity to watch the Battle of the Bands at 'da Dome have a second chance to hear the music during today's Bayou Classic Thanksgiving Day Parade.


My Spilt Milk: Big Gigantic


From My Spilt Milk, by Brian Sibille

Jam bands age like any rock stars. The greats get older alongside fans, both eventually burnt out to some degree by now. The genre surely isn't dead as this weekend's Widespread Panic shows illustrate, but at American music festivals - Voodoo included - would keep the jam band culture's woozy, extended spirit alive in the bleeps and bloops of electronic music?
