    Hey man - if you want to prioritize supporting a local movie theater (the Broadside is a a great venue) over one of our longstanding cultural institutions to save a few bucks while insinuating on a message board that they're greedily setting their ticket prices go nuts.
    I'm not sure to whom you are replying but I don't see any post insinuating anyone is "greedily setting their ticket prices." Some of us have pointed out that $50 at zony mash seems high, but no one insinuated greed. They're bringing in some great acts, and irrespective of whether the money goes to the performers, the Maple Leaf, or zony mash, they're entitled to set their prices however they want to, and we can choose to attend or not as we see fit.

    Is GPjr worth $50? Absolutely. Is Ivan Neville doing a Meters show worth $50? Absolutely. In fact one easily could argue that both shows are worth a lot more. My only point is that it gives me more pause at $50 than it does at $30. Will I be in the mood to go when the time comes? Will another show be announced that will be of equal or greater interest to me? The $50 price tag didn't keep me from buying at GPJr ticket; in fact I was so excited I bought the ticket without realizing I already had tickets to see Tank & The Bangas that night. But I'm holding off on some of the other shows for now until I'm certain that I'm gonna want to go.

    But in any event maybe withhold your judgment and allow each of us to make our own decisions on how we want to spend our entertainment dollars.

    • Just got back from The Maple Leaf. Great street party up there. Nice crowd, great weather and music. Revert "Peanut" Andres is the bomb! It's been a long time since I last saw him play. So nice to be back in the joint even if it was just to buy a drink.

      • I drove to Baton Rouge tonight to see the Lost Bayou Ramblers play in Beauvoir Park (an inapt name given the highway on one side and the train tracks on the other). A really great show in a really great setting. This is a band I’ve missed a lot. Seeing them again on Saturday night at the Broadside.

          2 nights in a row? I'll be there tomorrow night, probably alone unless some friends got tix as it's sold out. I'll prob wear my Pres Hall tshirt and I'll have on some type of hat. I doubt I'll be sitting down at all for The Ramblers! Come say hello if you see me as I do not know what you look like. James

              See you tonight. Black t-shirt, black jeans, brown boots.

                  • I just got an email from Music Box Village that their only spring event will be a dance performance Apr 15-17. "Music Box Village will reopen with our own original programming this Fall if the pandemic continues to ease". So that's disappointing - I enjoyed the shows there last fall, though they wouldn't have been economically viable without big sponsors, so I get it.

                    On the positive side, and email from the Orpheum announcing a new show in September (Gregory Porter). I think that's the first new show at any of the theaters since this all started.

                    • I saw Anders (with Brad Walker for a few tunes) at Tip's on Sat night, caught a few Nightcrawlers tunes on the way home at Zony Mash and then saw Cha Wa tear it up at The Broadside on Sun. Things are slowly starting to feel like normal around here.
