If you think two weekends of Jazz Fest will sate your musical cravings for a while, think and think again. On May 11, Tipitina's is throwing a Battle of the Bands, New Orleans vs. Baltimore/Washington D.C.-style. It'll be hosted by NOLA's own Wendell Pierce (from Treme and The Wire) and Michael K. Williams (Omar on The Wire). It's all a benefit for The Roots of Music, and tickets are only $20. VIP hookups are $100.

Our city will be represented by Galactic and the Stooges Brass Band, who need no introduction. Balto is sending Lafayette Gilchrist and the New Volcanoes and Anwan Glover and the Backyard Band. Here's a look at Gilchrist in action at Bertha's in Fells Point:
