Robert Plant Belts in Bywater (VIDEO)


BJ's Lounge went on a Plant diet Monday night. Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant stopped in to the Bywater haunt to sit in with Guitar Lightnin' Lee and his Thunder Band. The rocker regaled the crowd with a few New Orleans R&B standards, and two videos have already emerged from the encounter.


Today in New Orleans 11.12.12


Don’t let the rainy weather get you down, there’s plenty of music all over the city to bring you out of your Monday slump. Get funky on Oak Street, have some red beans in the Bywater, or groove to some ukulele in Lee Circle. On this day in New Orleans, Ernest Morial was elected the city’s first black mayor in 1977.


Michael Aaron, Original Rough 7 Member, Memorialized in Bywater Friday


Tomorrow night, the Bywater faithful will second line an entire block for one of their own. One of the original guitarists of downtown rock gaggle R Scully's Rough 7, Michael Aaron died in December at the age of 49. The former owner of Rock 'n Roll Collectibles on Decatur St. was a noted downtown musician, audiophile and friend to the many who crossed paths with him. To celebrate his life, Aaron will get a full block party on Lesseps St., followed by a midnight second line to BJ's for a performance by the Rough 7.
