1st Weekend of New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival 2012
I recently went down to New Orleans for our annual Jazz Fest trip. I saw so much music and yet missed so much more. It’s amazing the talent available all day at the fest and all night AND morning at the clubs. One of my favorite acts this year was Amanda Shaw & the Cute Guys. Amanda plays a sort of punk rock fiddle with a rock band. They did a mean cover of the Clash’s “Should I stay or should I go”. I highly recommend seeing them if you have the chance.
We had perfect weather this year although I have some really fond memories of knee deep in mud dancing in the rain from years past. Usually when it rains I hang out in the gospel tent all day, which can make for a surreal fest experience.
The music In NOLA always gets me there but the people keep me coming back. So I decided to focus on some of my favorite characters this year. Some I recognize from over the past 15 years, green stache man, and some are new personalities . . .
