The Marigny/Bywater South-by-Southwest stop-through indie fest known as Foburg Fest, now in it’s third year after the New Orleans Indie Rock Collective launched in 2010, has rolled out the lineup for this year’s event, and will take place March 9-11, this year a safer distance from Mardi Gras fallout than last year’s (which came the weekend after) so no excuses to miss any of the can’t miss acts rolling through this year. Also, judging by the presence of Freedia, Katey Red and Sissy Nobby, it appears a bounce azzstravaganza is included in the festivities so there’s that…Foburg will take over most all nightclubs throughout the Marigny and Bywater areas. Weekend passes can be picked up at the festival’s site for $25.
