  • Btos, I've got a couple questions for you.
    First, anyone have an extra Dumpstaphunk ticket for either of their shows at Tips?

    secondly, how is the venue at Southport Music Hall? Was looking forward to Bouzouki Groove and The Nola Suspects at the Trashpile, but now that its change to spmh, I'm not so sure. What's the vibe like there? Cool place to spend 5 hours?

    lastly, I was thinking about the IKO Allstars at the Trashpile and was ok with $40 because the venue was cool with limited tickets. Now that its at Nola Brewing, which is less cool, and has space for many more ticket sales, $40 seems a little steep. Someone please convince me I should still go?

    thanks

      I don't think I ever spent more than $25 to see the real Grateful Dead, but hey......it's hard to run with the weight of gold. Enjoy !!

      • Looks like there's a new jazz club in the Sheraton, nola.com has photos. Called "Jazz @ the Blue Dog", it appears to be street level on the Canal/Camp corner of the building.

                  I saw Vanilla Ice there. Fantastic show. Or perhaps it was Mili Vanilli.

                    It was better back in the day when I saw Vanilla Fudge there.

                    • I feel badly about this as I kind of dislike when an honest question is fodder for someone else’s nonsense, and I’m completely at fault.
                      ronberk - there are varying opinions- including a digression on what makes a venue “vanilla. I think it’s essentially a parking lot though, and is purported to have similar charm levels.

                      • If you go to the Broad theater and or Broadside website click on how they fight Covid.
                        there’s a picture of the distanced crowd in their pods.

                          • More on the new club, and a list of other hotel music:

                            What do you do when your hotel has too much meeting space? If it’s in New Orleans, you turn some of that extra space into a jazz club.

                            With 100,000 square feet devoted to meetings, the downtown Sheraton New Orleans hotel traditionally catered to convention customers. But conventions went away during the coronavirus pandemic and won't be back any time soon.

                            Since the Sheraton reopened in August, it has primarily hosted leisure travelers. That prompted general manager Jim Cook and his team to reconsider several underutilized spaces, including the Rodrigue Gallery. The ground-floor gallery, decorated with the late George Rodrigue’s signature Blue Dog prints, was no longer needed for meeting overflow.
                            ...

                            John Shoup, manager of the latter-day Dukes of Dixieland, is booking the bands for the hotel. Cover charges will likely range from $10 to $20; discounted valet parking at the hotel is available with paid admission.
                            ...

                            With the opening of Jazz @ the Blue Dog, the Sheraton joins several other downtown hotels that are once again hosting live music as coronavirus restrictions ease.

                            Jazz trumpeter/vocalist Jeremy Davenport is reinstated at the Davenport Lounge inside the Ritz-Carlton.

                            Robin Barnes sings every Friday and Saturday night at the Windsor Court Hotel’s Polo Club Lounge, following a happy hour set by pianist John Royen.

                            The Jazz Playhouse in the Royal Sonesta on Bourbon Street presents funk trombonist Big Sam on Wednesdays, the Brass-A-Holics on Thursdays, Trixie Minx’s Burlesque Ballroom on Fridays and the Nayo Jones Experience on Saturdays.

                            And the new owners of The Saint on Canal Street recently announced plans to bring live music back to the hotel’s Burgundy Bar.

                                I think it's mixed color personally.
