Spring Lineup for Wednesday at the Square Drops


The next week of Carnival is sure to be a blur, but after the bleachers at Lafayette Square come down, a stage will go up. The Young Leadership Council (YLC) Wednesdays at the Square series is slated to return March 2nd. Today, organizers revealed the season’s schedule.

 

The lineup is loaded with local favorites like Cyril Neville, Anders Osborne, Bonerama, Marcia Ball, and Kermit Ruffins. The next wave of NOLA music is also represented through acts including the Revivalists, Mia Borders, and Sweet Crude.

 

Admission is free. However, the YLC uses the event as a fundraiser earning money from concessions. (In the past, the YLC has supported causes such as installing lights on the Crescent City Connection). Some of the vendors include Araña Taqueria and Cantina, Cook Me Something Mister, Miss Linda the Ya-Ka-Mein Lady, Ninja Sushi, Plum St. Snoballs, and Saucy’s BBQ.
