Editor’s Note: There is so much live music in New Orleans, and sometimes it can be rather overwhelming to know what to hear, where to go, or what to do. Writer and music lover Wesley Hodges is giving weekly previews of the live music happening in New Orleans as well as some sneak previews into what is coming up. For a full view of Wesley’s suggestions, check out his facebook page.
Hi folks, hope y’all had a great Thanksgiving and the return to reality after the holiday break hasn’t been too harsh today. Luckily, another run of holidays are just around the corner and the local music calendar is packed in the coming weeks, with tons of new shows being announced for late-winter and spring in recent weeks. I’ve added a bunch to the local live music and new album releases calendar below so be sure to scroll down below.
