The popular Wednesdays at the Square free concerts are nearing an end, but locals are savoring the series while it lasts. Yesterday (6.04), crowds turned out to check out badass bass George Porter and his Runnin' Pardners along with openers the Pocket Aces Brass Band. Andres Delmonte was on hand to capture all of the action.

The weather is beautiful. So, get your blankets ready for some funk at Wednesday at the Square. If you’re looking for something harder, head uptown for Indonesian Grind “assault” Core or take the trip to Frenchmen for some more traditional NOLA music. On this day in 1938, Louis Armstrong and his orchestra recorded “When the Saints Go Marching In,” in New York. Now, more to do this Wednesday.

Although the first Wednesday at the Square of the season has been cancelled due to rain, there's still some things going on tonight, that is if you can stand the gloomy weather. Meschiya Lake and Tom McDermott hold down their regular gig in Mid City. The Treme Brass Band can be found at home in the Candlelight. A gumbo cook-off sizzles at the Royal Sonesta. On this day in 1861, delegates from South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas adopted the constitution of the confederacy. Now, more to do this Tuesday.

On today’s date in 1930, Louis Armstrong and His Sebastian New Cotton Club Orchestra recorded “Body and Soul” for the Okeh label in Los Angeles. Now, more to do this Wednesday:

Wednesdays at the Square Returns


by Brad Rhines

Daylight Savings Time means an extra of hour of sunshine, which leaves many folks around town wondering how best to spend it.  If it’s Wednesday, your best bet is probably “Wednesdays at the Square,” the weekly concert series sponsored by the Young Leadership Council that starts today.
