Happy Monday Everybody!
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 celebrate the return of one of my favorite bands Frogs Gone Fishin' 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 adult beverage and 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 music....Vince Carr at 4:00 pm, Dominic Grillo and The Frenchmen Street 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 stay cool...and for more musical fun check out WWOZ Livewire ....until tomorrow
