Happy Monday Everybody...Let's see what's goin' on this first official day of Summer!
Featured Monday Fun and Music
It's another HOT Monday so it's a good night to take a stroll along the River Road levee and take in the breeze, and while you're there be sure to stop at the River Shack Tavern at 7:00 pm for some really GOOD red beans and rice, and the cool sounds of Amanda Walker.
Get your evening started off right at Chickie Wah Wah on Canal....they have musical legend Spencer Bohren for an early show at 7:00 pm...and I'm sure there's gonna be some yummy food too!!
Stayin' in Mid-City...then you need to go by the Banks Street Bar for some free red beans (every Monday - I might add) and the rockin' sounds of The N'Awlins Johnnys at 10:00 pm. This is a great way to beat those Monday back to work blues!
Keep out the heat and spend some time on the Avenue at The Columns....There's gonna be David Doucet from BeauSoleil fame and while you're enjoying the sounds have a refreshing mojito...this will surely start your evening off right!
If you're headed to the Quarter go down to hear another amazing early show with Bob French and the Original Tuxedo Band at Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse show starts around 8:00 pm...with NO COVER!
If you're lookin' for some bluegrass music tonight you don't have to go too far to find it....Check out the Hi Ho Lounge on St. Claude and the Bluegrass Pickin' Party at 8:00 pm...there's no cover and FREE red beans at this show too!
Be sure to make a stop by the Spotted Cat early for this great line-up of bands, Casual Baby at 4:00 pm, Dominic Grillo & The Frenchmen St. All Stars at 6:00 pm and be sure to stay on for the Jazz Vipers at 10:00 pm.....it's sure to be another smokin' Monday evening show.
Have a great Monday and, as always, check out WWOZ Livewire for more music and fun stuff....until tomorrow.
