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.
Well, we did it folks. New Orleans was able to get one of the few coveted Radiohead US dates on the schedule and the best thing about it: the show is only two months and some change from happening. We’re still eagerly waiting for the dang Jazz Fest lineup to drop, should be here any day … Finally, I’m running a ticket giveaway for a chance to see Lost Bayou Ramblers and Maggie Koerner on Friday, 2/10 at Tipitina’s and you can enter here.
