Live music in New Orleans this week (April 4-9, 2017) 

Simon Berz and Brad Walker, Of Montreal, New Water Music, David Dondero

Simon Berz and Brad Walker
Tue. April 4 | Andy Durta's predictably unpredictable Scatterjazz series resumed last week at Sidebar NOLA with Helen Gillet on cello and Swiss wizard Simon Berz on everything else (a Ouija soundboard of percussion and electronics). It continues this week with saxophonist Brad Walker, whose horns will help Berz conjure a different set of spirits. At 8 p.m.

Of Montreal
Wed. April 5 | The latest stop on Kevin Barnes' magical mystery tour is January's EP Rune Husk, released just a few months after 2016's Innocence Reaches and another almost-annual installment of his band's experiments in funk freakouts and psychedelic pop. Christina Schneider's Jepeto Solutions opens at 9 p.m. at The Howlin' Wolf.

New Water Music
Sat. April 8 | Composer Yotam Haber, artistic director Delaney Martin, arts organization New Orleans Airlift and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra present an original performance on Lake Pontchartrain, with community organizations and residents invited to participate. There's food and other activities beginning at 4 p.m. and a performance at sunset at Seabrook Boat Launch. (Rain out date is April 9.)

David Dondero
Sun. April 9 | This solo show from certified "musician's musician" David Dondero offers a brief breather from Poor Boys' fantastically noisy punk junket. January's Inside the Cat's Eye (Koschke) is yet another unassuming gem in a 20-year career overrun with them. At 8 p.m.
