Open Season: Music

Bountiful Bookings Slated Across New Orleans This Fall



With the local spring festival season often crowded and the ever-expanding national summer festival season pulling in more and more acts, New Orleans citizens know all too well the feeling of viewing their favorite bands’ tour schedules and seeing their city leapfrogged and left out.  But we have finally come to fall, and event calendars around town are filling up quickly with out of town acts as well as unique local alternatives and new combinations of old favorites.
