The 6th Ward's brass band saunters over to Frenchmen
Broadway Street, 9a.m.-1p.m.
Uptown edition of the city's prime local
Blues, Brews & The Beard
The Saints are an underperforming 3-2, and the city remains under oilpocalypse no matter what the papers say. Our collective pscyhe has been bruised, and we got the blues. Perfect timing for..yet another festival. Let us take respite from our collective troubles in the comfort of Anders Osborne's beard this weekend at the Crescent City Blues and Barbeque Festival.
The three-day, Lafayette Square gathering's big headliner is Taj Mahal, who plays Saturday night. Equally enticing are sets from Barbara Lynn, Otis Taylor and the fashion yardstick by which all other men in New Orleans are measured against - Little Freddie King. The vendor lineup boasts only two true BBQ joints. But how many do you need to make it a treat in a seafood town?
