Aquarium Drunkard Presents: Jazzfest Season
It's April. For me, that means one thing - JAZZFEST SEASON is here. And by that I am, of course, referring to one of the our country's longest running music festivals, The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Or, if brevity is your thing, just, Fest. Spanning two weekends, while the fest indeed boasts national touring acts the focus (and beauty) is the celebration of "the indigenous music and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana." And then there are the night shows.
This week's playlist highlights said NOLA indigenous music. Get a plane ticket. I'll see you on the fairgrounds, outside the gospel tent, with an Abita in one hand and a bowl of Crawfish Monica in the other.
