Nola Live Music Letter

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, keeping it short and sweet this week. Tomorrow, Ryan Adams is at the Orpheum, Delicate and Steve is at Siberia and Conor Oberst pairs up with Felice Brothers on Saturday down at the Civic with plenty of goods in between. Also, I’ve added a number of shows to the concert calendar below (Greensky Bluegrass announced their return to NOLA for a Jazz Fest night show on 5/6) and this Friday is shaping up to be one of the best new music release days of the year with new LPs from Real Estate and Spoon on the docket.

Remember to follow NOLA Live Music Letter’s new Twitter account @NOLALML and like the page on Facebook, so you can also the Shaky Knees contest.
