New Orleans After Mardi Gras

Many say that there’s a lull in the Carnival season right around, oh say Lent. Traditionally, after Ash Wednesday, revelers were told to go home, seeing as how it was Lent and to honor the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross and abstain from, well something for 40 days and nights, until Easter rolled around. Nowadays, however, if you’re in the Big Easy and Mardi Gras wasn’t enough to sate your party palate, there’s Foburg music fest.

This nontradional music reveille (their words) is more cutting edge in musical respects than most other concerts and leans on the electronic dub-step side of things. Bands like Toro Y Moi, T Bird and the Breaks, Ra Ra Riot, and Das Riot headline the event this year, which takes place in 15 venues on and around Frenchmen Street in the greater Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans. This area is famous to locals and routinely has the best local musicians playing its various grungy bars. People like Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, Kelly Blue Band, and others routinely are on the roster to play these great little spots and anyone who’s anyone in the New Orleans scene can be found here. So go grab an Abita Amber in a To-Go container and walk from bar to bar listening to these up-and-coming Indie Rockers Always a good time and an easy cure for any post Mardi Gras Blues.
