Wednesday at the Square 2013 Lineup Unveiled
by Sarah Esenwein
Once the Mardi Gras hangover wears off, New Orleaians gear up for a near-constat barage of festivals celebrating the spirit, sights, sounds and art of the city. Quickly becoming a strong thread in the fiber of this culture is the annual Young Leadership Council (YLC) and New Orleans City Council concert series, Wednesday at the Square. Click through for this year's schedule.
Meters Don't Make Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Cut
Music nerds won't get to do a side-by-side superjam comparison of Zigaboo Modeliste and Neil Peart, after all. Modeliste and the rest of New Orleans funk legends The Meters were left off of the list of inductees in the 2013 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But a New Orleans-connected musician will still be among the class.
The Meters Nominated for Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame
The Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame might be getting some more New Orleans inductees. Funk deities and Crescent City natives The Meters are among a group of 15 acts on a list of nominees for next spring's enshrinement. Up in Cleveland, there's no secretive Academy. The only way the foursome will make the final cut is by getting the most votes from fans. For all those times you've put them on during a crawfish boil or Carnival party, throw George, Art, Leo and Ziggy a bone by voting for them here.
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:
Meters Reunite at Voodoo Fest
CITY PARK - Legal woes, competing yet strangely similar side projects and huge personalities were all set aside as the Meters ahhhh-YA'd in to "Cissy" Strut Sunday night at Voodoo fest. Crowds have a special energy at the moment of long (long, long)-awaited reunion, and this show was no different. Or, maybe it was just the smell of marijuana, which strengthened throughout the set. Either way, this was one of the billed shows that, though scheduled and cubed, could have easily been pulled out from underneath the eager crowd.
Voodoo Cubed: Sun. Oct. 30
Voodoo fest 2011 goes out with something deep and something Cheap. Today's bright spots include a Meters reunion, Cheap Trick, Dr. John and many more. Check out all NoDef's picks after the jump.
This afternoon, we were feeling in a rut. Deciding which Lady Gaga outfit to wear for Halloween is just so hard. So, we decided to do some cyberstalking on Facebook. And, lo and behold, Voodoo festival had released the schedule for which bands will play each day. (Still no times and stages, though) As expected, the big headliners are evenly split across all three days, with Soundgarden Friday, Snoop Dogg and Blink 182 Saturday and The Meters and Jack White's Rancoteurs rounding things out Sunday. Check out the full list after the jump.
Fest After Dark
JazzFest Days, Supergroup Nights
What to do after the Fest? More fest, of course.

Something Funky on The Books
Docked fishermen aren't the only ones getting an escrow account this week. A judge ordered funk deity George Porter Jr. to put a quarter of his earnings from gigs in the northeast into a third-party account while he settles court business with a former manager. Phil Stepanian, owner of Massachusetts-based High Steppin' Productions, is suing the bassist for downplaying some of the earnings he made with his group Porter Batiste Stoltz. Porter denied wrongdoing in court documents. Yet another reason to always get paid in cash, eh George?
