Tip's Releases Foundation Free Friday Schedule


Not all free, summer concert series are outdoors. Just in time for air conditioning months, the legendary Tipitina’s dropped the schedule for their Foundation Free Fridays. And, locals will have plenty of live music to listen to from June to September.


Tip's to Honor Jimmy Glickman


New Orleans music legend Jimmy Glickman will receive the sendoff that he deserves. Glickman, owner of the New Orleans Music Exchange and father figure to local musicians, will be honored by the Tipitina’s Foundation with a second line and memorial concert on February 20th from 2p.m. to 6p.m.
