    • Black Laurel at B'macs this Wednesday 6:30 PM. Free, reservations encouraged, but there should be room for walk ups. We do plan on livestreaming this one and I will include link when available.

      Come on out locals. Beautiful setting in Creole Townhome courtyard. Half block off Bourbon Street in Da Quarter's.

          • We haven't been to New Orleans since Fall '19 and are way out of touch on music venue/eatery openings, closings, mutations, etc. Could someone provide a summary, highlights, or links to same of such happenings, pretty please, and thanks in advance?

              Things are changing quickly. A majority of indoor venues are still closed, but some are starting to re-open. There's a lot of music to be heard, mostly local bands used to smaller crowds (e.g., lots of Alex McMurray shows; not many from Shorty, Galactic, etc). A lot of the music is porch/balcony/sidewalk shows, many of which are announced with a week or less notice. The most complete listings seem to be here: https://www.satchmo.com/nolavl/concerts.html

              In a change from the before-times, most shows are starting on schedule. Bars have to close by 1 am.

              New venues:
              The Broadside
              Faubourg Brewery
              Zony Mash Brewery

              Restaurant closings

                I'm curious if all of this outdoor music continues when the Summer heat and humidity hits us.

                I'm going to a regular, soldout outdoor Black Pumas show on Memorial Day weekend at Stubb's in Austin. It should be interesting ad that place gets packed with 2000 person capacity. They are playing there 5 nights in a row. First shows like this so far in Austin since the pandemic started. I guess some venue needs to go first! Most other shows there are like here, socially distanced with small crowds let in or outdoors.

                    Liuzza's (on Bienville) is actually still open, though they're looking to sell and the future is uncertain.

                          I live right behind them. That place is dead. I see hardly anyone in there. I'm surprised they are still open. I'd love to buy that place and make it a Mexican cantina.

                            I haven’t been in years, but would go back for the nostalgia. Not sure I could stomach a frozen stein of Coors, though.

                            • Offbeat reports:

                              DBA at Palace Market, a new outdoor music venue on Frenchmen Street will host its grand opening on Thursday, May 20. Located at 619 Frenchmen Street, directly across from the original DBA venue, the new performance space will provide a beautiful outdoor setting for table seating, beverage service, and a lineup of many of favorite acts who define the Frenchmen Street music scene.

                              Tom Thayer, owner of DBA for 21 years, is partnering with Gregor Fox, owner of the Palace Market, to offer music fans a completely new and enhanced experience, including reserved seating and mobile cocktail service brought directly to the table. For many months since Frenchmen Street emerged from pandemic-related shutdowns, DBA has hosted a popular series of sidewalk buskers opposite the music club’s entrance.

                              To celebrate the return of live music to Frenchmen Street, DBA at Palace Market will present a showcase New Orleans’ finest talent. The opening weekend lineup includes Ivan Neville, Papa Mali, Holly Rock, New Orleans Jazz Vipers, and more. The outdoor venue will host multiple concerts and events from Friday through Sunday every week. Tickets and table reservations are available on a first-come, first-served basis and can be purchased at dbaneworleans.com (click on the SHOWS tab to view upcoming events and purchase advance tickets).

                                That sounds fun! I'm enjoying the new outdoor venues and hope they become permanent.
