Drinking Culture

Swamped at the Seahorse Saloon

Gentle reader, if you earn a crust in the music venue or the white-linen restaurant, your eyes are likely now deep as sinkholes. Your stare is no doubt a cause for concern in your fellows, piercing the distance catatonically as it does. For The Jazz Fest has nigh run its long course. But ere the hoof replaces the folding chair upon the track, let us soldier out and witness the festival’s denouement. Let us view the sunburned hordes streaming from the gate, take a drink or two, and muse a spell on the world’s greatest musical event. All from a stool at the old Seahorse Saloon.

Today in NOLA: 5.03.15

Jazz Fest finishes today with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue on the Acura Stage. Over in Algiers, NOizeFest returns with an added “bucolic” element. After the Fair Grounds close, George Clinton, Dumpstaphunk, and Voodoo Dead will keep the crowds dancing all night.

Today in NOLA: 5.02.15

There’s only two days of Jazz Fest remaining.

Jazz Fest returns today. So does the NFL (sort of). The Special Man is hosting an art show and Mid City is hosting a farmers’ market. On this day in 1812, Louisiana officially became the 18th state in the Union. And, there is lots to do to celebrate statehood.

Jaz Fest Weather Outlook

The Weather Gods and New Orleanians have a love-hate relationship. This weekend, that dynamic is skewing towards the amorous. Radar analysis and forecasts from the National Weather Service (NWS) are predicting a pleasant, rain-free second weekend for Jazz Fest.

After Hours Music Listings: 4.27.15

The fest is on pause, but so is the rain. The music is not. Joan Armatrading, Marco Benevento, and Marcia Ball are just a few of the names on the marquis tonight. Plus, on Frenchmen, there are more funky mashups going down. Check out all of the details below.

Jazz Fest After Hours: 4.26.15
