Photos by Andres Delmonte
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.
