Galactic's infrequent New Orleans shows tend to be holiday marathons, generally including New Year's and Mardi Gras shows at Tip's. The funk outfit is due to drop its new album YA-KA-MAY in February, and it includes more of the hip-hop hybrids initiated on From the Corner to the Block (2007). John Mooney and Bluesiana open. Tickets $60, VIP packages available.
