Drive-by Truckers will perform at Hogs for the Cause
at New Orleans City Park's Festival Grounds March 27-28, 2015. The two-day celebration of barbecue and Southern-style pig roasts is a fundraiser to support families dealing with pediatric brain cancer. Hogs for the Cause distributed more than $250,000 following its events this year.
The 2015 music lineup also includes The Wood Brothers, J. Roddy Walston and The Business, Stand of Oaks, Hiss Golden Messenger, Tab Benoit, George Porter Jr. & the Runnin' Pardners and others.
Discounted advance sales tickets, starting with $30 two-day passes, are available

The event will feature 90 teams presenting various barbecue and roasted pork dishes. Judges decide on the best Whole Hog, Pork Butt/Shoulder and Porkpourri dishes.
Rene Louapre and Becker Hall founded Hogs for the Cause in 2008. They expanded with a second Hogs for the Cause barbecue and music festival in Charlston, South Carolina.
