JazzFest Weekend 2 Opens
The Fest powers threw open the gates of JazzFest's second weekend today, with four furious days of music, food and watermelon sacrificing lined up. Today's often been called Locals Thursday, and that's especially true at NOLA Defender, as we see some of our past special guest writers take the stage. At the Acura Stage, Hurray for the Riff Raff opens things up, while Honey Island Swamp Band is on at 2:25 p.m, while Flow Tribe and Mia Borders occupy the Gentilly Stage at from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Elsewhere, Kourtney Heart plays Congo Square at 11:15 a.m., and Stooges Brass Band stop off at the same spot at 2:45 p.m. Meanwhile, there's one more schedule change to pass along.
New Orleans piano guru Tom McDermott unexpectedly withdrew from this year's JazzFest. The New Orleans Moonshiners, who specialize in that brand of 1920s swing that's hard not to dance to, will take his place on the Lagniappe Stage Sunday at 1:40 p.m.
