Le Bon Temps Roulé. 4801 Magazine St. Might have a cover, so bring cash.

Friday, July 4th

Ought (w/ Dub Thompson)

This post punk group from Montreal almost sounds like melodic noise punk. It’s very early Modest Mouse-ish, which is enough to convince me. Plus, I always love shows at Gasa Gasa.

Gasa Gasa. 4920 Freret St. Tickets are $8.00

Sweet Crude

I’ve recommended them before, and I’ll do it again. Sweet Crude is what you get when you mix Southern Louisiana culture with indie folk-pop. 12 Mile Limit is throwing a 4th of July party with food trucks and music, so this isn’t one to miss. I’m in this video, find me for a prize.

12 Mile Limit. 500 S. Telemachus.

Saturday, July 5th

Questlove + Soul Sister

Seriously, need I say more? The Roots veteran and current bandleader of The Tonight Show is a must see for this Saturday. YOU GUYS NEED TO SEE THIS SHOW.

Tipitina’s. 501 Napoleon Ave. Tickets are $25.

Sunday, July 6th

Hot 8 Brass Band

If you didn’t get your fill of brass earlier in the week with Soul Rebels, this Sunday has your cure.
