Words by Shane Colman | Photos by Marc Pagani Voodoo Fest touched down in City Park for its 15th annual reincarnation, bringing a seemingly disjointed lineup to the massive oak trees of America’s largest urban park. Each of the fest’s four stages seemed to cater to a different music fan, with the college crowd hanging out at the EDM...
The Lumineers and Dr. Dog brought their joyous circus of a show to New Orleans’ Lakefront Arena last Wednesday. The two young bands have been touring together since way back in April, and frequent collaborations throughout the night made it abundantly clear these guys know each others’ songs inside and out. The nearly full arena was mostly there for...
Jazz pianist Brian Haas is in the midst of a “Louisiana Residency” to promote and perform in full his excellent new record, Frames. Joined by New Orleans’ all around favorite drummer, Jonny Vidacovich, Haas is taking the minimal, yet epic, sounds of his new album to astonishing life onstage. Frames follows the life cycle of an...
New Orleans’ newest music venue, Gasa Gasa, has been putting on consistently great shows since opening last spring, booking indie rock bands and acoustic singer-songwriters that often get overlooked amongst the city's wealth of jazz and funk bands. Last Tuesday, the Freret Street club was packed with devoted fans of Indiana rock band Houndmouth as they played one...
Marco Benevento is heading to the great state of Louisiana this weekend as part of his extensive fall tour supporting his last release, TigerFace. Ahead of bringing his infectious piano driven rock all the way across the country, he checked in with us from his new home "out in the country" in Woodstock, NY between his current shows...

A whole lot more than you might think, especially if you ask Nathan Rabin, who spent the better part of two years following these groups and attempting find out what makes them simultaneously cherished and reviled by so many people. From The Gathering of the Juggalos to...
Dawes and Shovels & Rope delivered a joyous lesson on Songwriting 101 to a rapt crowd at Tipitina’s a few weeks back on Tuesday, June 4th. The two bands have markedly different sounds, but a shared quality is what makes each of them great: their ability to construct perfectly-crafted rock songs that pack a deep emotional punch. ...
A modestly thin crowd at Tipitina’s got down hard last Friday night, but the music they were grooving to was far from the NOLA funk that usually fills those hallowed halls. !!! (pronounced “chk chk chk”) blasted through a tight, hour long set that showcased their distinct dance-punk stylings and delivered songs culled primarily from their recent release,...
The Hangout Music Fest returns for its 4th edition next weekend in Gulf Shores, AL and will feature such headliners as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder, The Shins and Trey Anastasio Band. Shane Colman of the LMB NOLA team shares some of his picks for the must-see sets of the weekend from some of...
Food, drinks, and nonstop dancing. Here’s the best of what I saw last weekend for Round 1 of Jazz Fest 2013. John Michael Rouchell @ Jazz Fest NOLA’s own John Michael Rouchell opened the Acura Stage around noon on Saturday with a high energy set that certainly deserved to be on the big stage. Playing with a new...
