Jazz Fest 2012: METERS Announce Show @ The Howlin’ Wolf May 5th
After playing four festival-related one-off shows last year (two at SF’s Outside Lands, Bonnaroo and Voodoo Experience), the four original members of The Meters have announced their first New Orleans club gig in 30 years for a second Saturday late night show during Jazz Fest on May 5th at The Howlin’ Wolf. Although it still seems a long way out, the Jazz Fest late night schedule is already starting to take shape and this will almost undoubtedly be the toughest late night ticket of the whole fest. We will let you know when ticket information comes about for what should be one of the more memorable late nights in recent JF history.
