Update: Due to weather, the second line is postponed to Friday, April 15. Full route information here.

James Andrews and other New Orleans musicians plan to lead a second line memorial for former New Orleans Saint Will Smith, who was killed late Saturday night. The second line meets at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 13 outside the Half Moon Bar (1125 St Mary St.) and parades up the block to the intersection of Sophie B. Wright Place and Felicity Street, where mourners and fans have built a memorial for Smith.

An event description on Facebook calls on "all NOLA musicians and Saints fans" to participate: "We are mouring not only the loss of retired Saints player Will Smith but the loss of RESPECT FOR LIFE. STOP THE KILLING!!!"

Musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments and others to "bring your dancing shoes."
