Less loftily, “It’s a bunch of art-pop and performance art about feelings”.

As the series matures we strive to create not just concerts, but happenings that encourage new collaborations on stage and help to create unique and intimate experiences for our supporters and the musicians alike.

"Dub Down Babylon" featuring Nels Cline Music Box Village @ 4557 N. Rampart St. 7 PM “The scene is set in post-apocalyptic New Orleans. After centuries of degrading the planet, humans destroyed nearly all life on earth and have fled to inhabit and deplete other planets. On this night in New Orleans, the survivors commune to regenerate through sound and movement.” The eclectic list of musicians include Nels Cline (Wilco), Josh Werner (Lee “Scratch” Perry), Margaret Hebert (Classical Pianist), Rob Cambre (New Orleans Prophet of Noise), Eric Heigle (Arcade Fire, Lost Bayou Ramblers). [via Music Box Village] Waiting for Columbus Saenger Theatre @ 1111 Canal St. 9 PM Blackbird Presents is proud to announce its annual “Second Weekend at the Saenger” concert series with “New Orleans Is Waiting For Columbus,” set to take place Saturday, May 6th at New Orleans’ historic Saenger Theatre. The all-star event celebrates Little Feat’s most beloved album in their expansive catalog with never-before-heard performances from a unique lineup of artists including musical director Warren Haynes, Jamey Johnson, Dave Malone, John Medeski, Don Was, Terence Higgins, Mark Mullins and many more special guests to be announced. [via Saenger Theatre] Anders Osborne & Friends, The Pimps of Joytime, The NO Suspects and more Howlin’ Wolf @ 907 S. Peters St. 9:30 PM Anders Osborne & Friends featuring Ivan Neville, Dan Lebowitz, Roosevelt Collier, and Mike Dillon plus Pimps of Joytime (LATE NIGHT), The New Orleans Suspects , and Roosevelt Collier & Friends + Mike Dillon Band Sunrise Set in The Den Lake Street Dive + Sweet Crude The Civic Theatre @ 510 O’Keefe Ave. 10 PM The quartet’s live shows have been widely praised by publications such as Billboard, saying Lake Street Dive successfully combined “Amy Winehouse, Rita Hayworth and R&B charisma,” and Rolling Stone called their album Side Pony, produced by Grammy winner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell) “irresistible.” Upon its release the album was #1 on the Alternative chart and #11 on the Billboard Album Sales chart. The title Side Pony takes its name from a song on the record that refers to a whimsical hairstyle, but it also serves as a metaphor for Lake Street Dive’s philosophy and personality as a band. As bassist Bridget Kearney puts it, “When we were settling on the album title, that one just stuck out to us as embodying the band’s spirit. We’ve always been this somewhat uncategorizable, weird, outlying, genre-less band. That’s the statement we wanted to make with this record: be yourself.” [via Lake Street Dive] Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen Maple Leaf Bar @ 8316 Oak St. 11 PM Jon Cleary & The Absolute Monster Gentlemen with special guest Nigel Hall 3AM Late Night: Fess-Head Late Night featuring Terence Higgins, Joe Marcinek, Roosevelt Collier, Nigel Hall, Nate Edgar

Adrift with The Cabana Queens The Drifter Hotel @ 3522 Tulane Ave. 11 AM to 1:30 PM The Cabana Queens would like to welcome you to the maiden voyage of Adrift! This event is a tropical poolside kiki and brunch with the live vocal stylings of Kimberly Clark, Carrie Mehome, Dede Onassis, and Tarah Cards. Delicious Cuban delicacies provided by La Cubana Food Truck and cocktails expertly poured by the bar at The Drifter Hotel. Take a break from the Jazz Fest crowds and cool off with us by the pool...we promise to be done before Patti Labelle goes on! [via Tarah Cards] The Quickening House of Blues (Foundation Room) @ 225 Decatur St. 8 PM After a day at the fairgrounds, the party continues in Foundation Room VIP Club. Step inside for drinks and intimate live music performances in our newly renovated Lounge. Saturated in soul and marinated in the love of music comes The Quickening out of New Orleans, LA. After parting ways with the Flow Tribe in 2012, guitarist and song writer Blake Quick has assembled a panel of musicians that have enhanced the meaning of "feel good music." Prepare to be blown away by the luscious vocal pairings between the stunning Rachel "Mama Ray" Murray and Quick. The two have a chemistry that boils with excitement and defies the term "frontman" into one cohesive partnership. The rhythm section, coupled by Cody Ruth on bass and Scott Sibley on drums, seem to have a marriage to the groove that Quick lays down. Some think the two are married themselves, they've been playing so long together. The rest of the band is a revolving door of sorts; always welcoming colorful textures to the band by including horns, pedal steel guitar, and various other woodwind and string instruments. The band has already made a huge impact in the New Orleans community and are eager to spread the word like butter across the US. [via House of Blues] Dumpstaphunk + Naughty Professor + DJ Soul Sister Tipitina’s @ 501 Napoleon Ave. 8 PM “Dumpstaphunk’s groove is a unique monster. It's not the minimalist funk of the Meters and it’s not the relentless funk of James Brown, although it has that rhythmic drive. It's not the psychedelic, over-the-top circus of Parliament Funkadelic, but it often has that political slant. It's not the party funk of the Ohio Players, but it shares the high vocals that take the pressure off the bottom. Dumpstaphunk is a whole other school of funk. If you're under 35, you think you've seen funk, but you haven't. You missed the original Meters, James Brown when he wasn't a parody, Parliament Funkadelic’s landing of the “Mothership”, Sly and the Family Stone before he went M.I.A and Booker T. and the M.G.s before the demise of Stax. Dumpstaphunk is as good as all that, and they're in their prime now.” ~ The Gambit Weekly Azzfest Hi-Ho Lounge @ 2239 St. Claude Ave. 10 PM 4th ANNUAL BOOTY BUMPIN BOUNCE-TACULAR EXTRAVAGANZA OO~OO~OO Our juiciest musical lineup yet ~ Live booty painting/decorating ~ Posterior performances you've never seen before!

The collection showcases the grittier side of the band’s musical oeuvre, including stand outs like "My Baby" featuring singer Nicki Bluhm, ”Everybody Knows That" and his raucous rendition of The White Stripes "Seven Nation Army." The album has received wide acclaim: All Music declared the effort, "easily their most musically adventurist album yet,” while DownBeat praised it as "music for both the party and for fans of instrumental prowess.” Approaching two decades strong, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe is a prolific touring juggernaut that regularly performs over 150 shows annually.

As Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews was growing up in New Orleans’ historic Treme neighborhood, he dreamed of one day hosting his own show at the legendary Saenger Theater.

Fu*k 2016: A Funky Tribute To Musicians We Lost Howlin’ Wolf @ 907 S. Peters St. 11 PM 2016 was one of the most upsetting years on record, as we lost so many amazing artists over the course of twelve months. Of course, New Orleans is the perfect place to pay tribute to these artists, and Jazz Fest is the perfect time. As part of this year’s Late-Nite After Jazz Fest Series at The Howlin’ Wolf, members of Turkuaz and The Motet will team up for a special “Fu*k 2016: A Funky Tribute To Musicians We Lost” on Sunday, April 30th.
