Every year, by the second week of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, you may find the best shows are often far from the festival grounds.

 

For instance, last Friday, April 24, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Loren Murrell and Silent Cinema hosted a dreamy late-night folksplotion tucked into the Saturn Bar, to be followed by MyNameIsJohnMichael that Saturday, April 25, who ripped into Ernie K-Doe's "Here Come the Girls" with seriously heavy blue-eyed soul.

 

Missed that? Well, the Fest is back for one last weekend, so look out for these post-Fest gigs of note:

 

 

As for Sunday, May 3:

 

  • Noize Fest: Total ear obliteration from noon to midnight at 609 Lesseps St., courtesy of local noise rock pioneers Big Baby, Ray Bong and Rob Cambre. Also look for El Gordo, Star of Kaos, Fox Rocks On, Mikronaut, Lucas Davenport, Helen Gillet and most likely a dozen others.
  • True Jazz Fest: The reigning King and Queen of 9th Ward future funk, Quintron & Miss Pussycat (pictured above) headline with metal maestros Tirefire and current title holder for Best Name Ever, Psychedelic Horse****. 9 p.m. at Saturn Bar.
