It's a beautiful night to hang out at City Park and enjoy John Boutte for the Twilight Garden Concert Series! Voted Best Male Vocalist of the year at both the Best of the Beat and the Big Easy Awards. His song "Treme" is the theme song of the popular HBO series. Those who were lucky to attend his sold out concert last year were part of a magical night. Don't miss this year's show. The gates open up at 5:00 pm and the performance starts at 6:00 pm in the City Park Botanical Garden Pavilion of the Two Sisters...There is an admission charge, but hey, it's helping the Park out...$10 for adults and $3 for children.
Need a little art, culture and music? You gotta go to the show at the Ogden Southern Museum of Art (925 Camp St.) - better known as Ogden after Hours. Tonight the Ogden has Tate Moore and Dave Woolworth.Since meeting in Oxford, Mississisppi, 19 years ago, this duo has been playing a version of alternative country/roots rock that has been dubbed "funktry." Be sure to head on over to the bar for this month's signature drink - The Spring Fling - *Remember with your Ogden membership all of these excellent concerts are FREE!!!
