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! Sorry for the delayed letter this week but alas, here it is. I’ve got a new contest to share this week – I’m giving away a pair of tix to see Lost Bayou Ramblers with Maggie Koerner at Tipitina’s on Friday, February 10th and you can enter the contest here. Congrats to Oliver Doxtater for winning the Lettuce contest and thanks to all who have entered. Will also be running a giveaway for Atmosphere next week and the Yonder Mountain String Band / G Love show next month so be sure to check the NOLA Live Music Letter FB page as those contests go live soon.
