What on earth could bring together indie mix-master RJD2, the estimable Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Jurassic 5 saving-grace Chali 2na and local rock relics the Radiators? Why, 16,000 pounds of Louisiana crawfish, of course. The eclecticism of the 2009 Crawfest, Tulane University's annual mudbug boil-cum-music festival, doesn't end there. Area musicians scheduled to perform include Kermit Ruffins & the Barbecue Swingers, the Joe Krown Trio, the Zydepunks, the Mardi Gras Indians and many more. For its third iteration, the festival is also adding new food and art vendors. Crawfest is the brainchild of Tulane students Dan Haber and Tim Cullen, who launched the inaugural event with the help of friends and a collection of New Orleans acts in 2007; it is staged by the Associated Student Body Crawfest Committee and funded entirely by student activities fees. Free admission. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
