Post-Fest: Week One

Posted by Google on Fri, Apr 23, 2010 at 5:54 PM

And here we are again.

The crowds will pour out from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival grounds, and they have to go somewhere. Or everywhere. Clubs compete in every neighborhood, foot traffic increases, One Eyed Jacks retires rock 'n' roll (at least for a couple weeks), and you get the idea — it's music overload, and you aren't trying if you can't find something to do for the next two weekends.

Friday:

Seguenon Kone performs a free show at 3 Ring Circus' Big Top Gallery (8 p.m.); Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings headlines, with appropriate openers Dumpstaphunk, at Howlin' Wolf (10 p.m.); Guitar Lightnin' Lee does Saturn Bar (10 p.m.); Caddywhompus headlines its album release for the spectacular Remainder (which you can download for free starting May 11) at Ernie K. Doe's Mother-In-Law Lounge (9 p.m.); Dirty Dozen Brass Band performs My Feet Can't Fail Me Now in its entirety at One Eyed Jacks (9 p.m.); George Porter Jr. & his Runnin' Pardners hits Tipitina's French Quarter venue at an unholy hour (2 a.m.); for early birds, Hurray for the Riff Raff plays down da road from the festival grounds at Domino Sound Record Shack (7 p.m.); and King Rey does Circle Bar (10 p.m.).

Saturday:

Morning 40 Federation comes back to earth at One Eyed Jacks (10 p.m.); Rebirth Brass Band is with Joe Krown and Walter "Wolfman" Washington at Howlin' Wolf (10 p.m.); Patti Smith brings punk rock to Tipitina's Uptown (10 p.m.), absent since Fugazi (2002), while Anders Osborne is at the venue's Quarter equivalent (10 p.m.); and DJs Kristen and Matty rule as Emperors of the Youth at the inevitably sweaty rain-refuge Mod Dance Party at Saturn Bar (11 p.m.).

Sunday:

If you're not watching Treme, for some reason, there is the New Orleans Klezmer Allstars at the Den at Howlin' Wolf (10 p.m.) and a free metal show at The Saint: The Anselmo-approved, heavy, heavy Haarp, with Mountain of Wizard and The Unbeheld (8 p.m.), followed by DJ Pasta.

Have a good weekend. Don't do anything stupid.
