Last weekend I was at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. I wrote about it here. This weekend, I'm not, but many of this weekend's Jazz Fest performances from the Crescent City, along with highlights from last weekend, will be streaming live here on youtube.com/jazzfest.
It starts at 2 p.m. Friday with long-legged painist Marcia Ball, and the long list of acts holding forth on your computer screen will include the Neville Brothers, My Morning Jacket, Allen Toussaint, Bonnie Raitt, Bon Iver, Trombone Shorty, Galactic, Janelle Monae, Kermit Ruffins & the Barbecue Swingers and the Dixie Cups. Iko Iko all day, for goodness sake.
Pictured are members of the New Orleans Social and Pleasure Club called Men of Class dancing in front of the Paulin Brothers Brass Band. I took it at the Economy Hall Jazz tent during last weekend's Fest. A Jazz Fest trailer is below.
