JazzFest After Dark: 5.3.13


If you have enough energy after leaving the festival gates, move your muddy feet at one of many post-Jazz Fest shows. Galactic is staying up late Uptown, and Government Mule & The Revivalists are playing the Mahalia Jackson. The temperature is dropping quickly, so pick a venue and get cozy. Click through for complete after dark listings. 

 

The Funky Meters, Tipitina’s (8:00 PM)

 

Head over to Napoleon if you gotta have that funk with Art Neville, who hails from the house that music built and master blues bassist George Porter Jr.  It’s the true measure of funk at its best on Tchoup tonight.

 

11th Annual Bayou Rendezvous, Howlin’ Wolf (8:00 PM)

 

Blues and funk masters from down on the Bayou come together at the Howlin’ Wolf for a soulful spectacle. See Papa Grows Funk with the Bonerama Horns, The New Orleans Allstars, The New Orleans Suspects, The Motet, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, and many more.  The clock is ticking down to the final Papa Grows Funk performance slated for June 29th; go get an earful of them while you still can.  Tickets are $30.

 

The Honorable South and Social Set, Allways Lounge (9:00 PM)

 

Its electric afro-rock and rhythmic blues rock with the infectious vocals of female fronted Honorable South and Social Set.  Swing over to St. Claude for some hand-clapping and toe-tapping tonight.

 

Grayson Capps & The Lost Cause Minstrels, Carrollton Station (10:00 PM)

 

Head to the Riverbend tonight for some deep fried southern soul. Grayson Capps brings his long hair and his blend of country, blues, and rock to Uptown, and he'll be playing tracks from his new album.

 

Gov’t Mule and the Revivalists, Mahalia Jackson Theatre (10:00 PM)

 

Formed from The Allman Brothers Band lead guitarist and vocalist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody, Gov’t Mule delivers hard southern rock guitar riffs with a classic rock feel.  They're playing with the Revivalists, whose raw vocals and dynamic orchestration have made the band a local favorite.  If you can’t make it out to Jazz Fest on Saturday to see them, catch them in the Treme.

 

Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes CD Release Party, Maple Leaf (10:30 PM)

 

A day after their show at the fairgrounds and about 2,000 after the since the release of their last record, Johnny Sketch and the Dirty notes crew are happy to pump out a new one and celebrate it’s birth at the Maple Leaf.

 

Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, One Eyed Jacks (1:30 AM)

 

If the Godfather of Soul is your preferred flavor, check out One Eyed Jacks on Toulouse for a taste of the funky soul stylings of Austin, TX native Black Joe Lewis playing the late show.  Tickets are $25

 

Galactic, Tipitina’s (2:00 AM)

 

Jamming the very late show at Tip’s is the electro-funk-jazz group Galactic.  Their Thursday show at One Eyed Jacks is sold-out and after Tip’s it’s on to their JF set so if you can’t make it to the Gentilly Stage, see them Uptown.
