Supersoul at Sacred Music Fest This Weekend


The sixth annual Sacred Music Festival will take place this Saturday (3.11), at the New Orleans Healing Center in the Marigny. A day of rituals both spiritual and artistic, the lineup for this free fest guarantees a day of enlightening experience. As the festival’s event page asked, “where else are you going to see Tibetan monks and Mormon elders rocking out to hip hop and medieval chants?” 


Today in New Orleans 3.16.13


Find another green shirt to throw on, or you’ll definitely get pinched. Enjoy block parties, parades, and more to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day weekend. On this day in 1999, local greats Roosevelt Sykes and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown were inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in Washington, D.C. Now, more to do this beautiful Saturday.


More Weekend Festivals: Fried Grub, African Rhythms and Scared Song


In case a literary-theatrical extravaganza, a huge BBQ cookoff, an afternoon drinking the world's beer, a 29 hour Bach marathon and a day of watching heads get shaved wasn't enough to help you shake off the Bounty Blues, New Orleans has three other festivals in store this weekend. From Congo Square to sacred song to Road Food, these fests make this weekend perhaps the most varied in recent memory. Click through for a quick snapshot of the remainders.
