If you're planning on hitting Frenchmen Street (and surrounding venues) this weekend for the inaugural foburg Music Festival, the fest has supplied these handy daily schedules and a map. Today's schedule is below. Hit the jump for the rest of the weekend's lineup (and map).
To the NOIRC's credit, they wrangled a pretty impressive lineup for a freshman festival in New Orleans, the week before Austin's South By Southwest, no less. Among national artists at the fest, highlights include Yardwork and Hope for a Golden Summer (Saturday at d.b.a.), Signals and The Show is the Rainbow (Sunday at Blue Nile), and JEFF the Brotherhood (Sunday at Maison).
As for locals? There are tons, and all worth checking out. Keep an extra eye on Jean-Eric, the Bellys, Caddywhompus, Sun Hotel, Giant Cloud and Givers.
