Concert Preview: July 14th – July 20th, 2014

Monday, July 14th

Woody Pines

Listening to Woody Pines is like stepping back in time to when music had enough soul to satisfy Satan himself 10 times over. It’s American Roots mixed with folk and the new wave Southern Gothic stuff you hear at dive bars past 3am. In other words, awesome.

Hi-Ho Lounge. 2239 St. Claude. 9PM. Free!

Tuesday, July 15th

Rebirth Brass Band

I shouldn’t have to say much about Rebirth, and I won’t. Seeing them live at Maple Leaf is about as quintessentially New Orleans as you can get, so have fun.

Maple Leaf. 8316 Oak St. $10 cover.

Wednesday, July 16th

New Madrid

I’ll call it southern indie rock, but you’ll have to see it to judge for yourself. This band from Georgia kind of takes a 90s style of alt and morphs it. Definitely worth seeing.

Publiq House. 452 Freret Street. 8PM. Free!

Thursday, July 17th




Do you want salsa dance? Because this is how you get salsa dance. Isla Nola brings the island lifestyle to New Orleans. Tell the percussionist Jonathan that I sent you.

Checkpoint Charlie’s. 501 Esplanade Ave. 11PM. Price may vary (meaning I couldn’t find one. Tough luck, now go see some music.)

Friday, July 18th



Maggie Koerner+The Honorable South+Painted Hands

Just an all around great musician with a great voice.

Electric soul rock and roll. Seriously, awesome.

One Eyed Jacks. 615 Toulouse St. Tickets are $10.

Saturday, July 19th

Creepy fest day 3


Cardinal Sons

Three brothers and good friends of mine, Cardinal Sons put on a great show. They’re also playing with Sweet Crude, so this is sure to be a good time.

One Eyed Jacks. 615 Toulouse St. Tickets are $10.

Sunday, July 20th




Are you full of early 00s teen angst? Of course you are, and we have the right concert for you.

House of Blues. 225 Decatur. Tickets are…sold out…minus a $90 balcony spot. You better like Chevelle for this one.

About Eric

Eric is a New Orleans native and graduate of Loyola. He grew up in Kenner and is embarrassed to tell you that. He lives Uptown and frequents local watering holes to socialize with peers. His hobbies include writing, making bad jokes, and casually observing the day to day life of New Orleans.
