Family, friends and fans of Coco Robicheaux, beloved local musician and ever familiar face on Frenchmen Street, will commemorate and celebrate his life with a second-line parade and concert on Monday, Dec. 12. Robicheaux died Nov. 25.

  Born Curtis Arceneaux in California, he spent much of his life in Louisiana, took the name Coco Robicheaux, and became known as both a visual artist and musician. He created the bust of Professor Longhair that sits inside Tipitina's. Robicheaux played blues guitar, sang in his signature gravelly voice and frequently invoked Voodoo images and spirituality. He released Spiritland, his first full album, in 1994, and several more followed, including Revelator in 2010.

  The second line will begin on Frenchmen Street in in the Faubourg Marigny at 3:30 p.m. and the Treme Brass Band will lead the procession through the Marigny and French Quarter. The procession will conclude at the House of Blues at roughly 6 p.m. and there will be a free concert featuring Glen David Andrews, Walter "Wolfman" Washington, Honey Island Swamp Band, John Mooney, J. Monque'D, Irene Sage and others. Free admission. — Will Coviello
