Nola live music letter

Happy New Year folks! I hope you were able to celebrate the holiday in the best way for you. I was up in New York seeing Phish at Madison Square Garden, if you'd like to read my review of that show, you can check it out here.

As for local live music, The Fareed Haque + Guests shows at The Maple Leaf and Willie Nelson on Sunday at House of Blues are most intriguing and next week the Red Hot Chili Peppers return to NOLA just eight months after headlining Jazz Fest 2016.

Hope your 2017 gets off to a running start, check out the WWOZ Livewire for a more comprehensive local listing of live shows in town. Now here is the line-up for new and live music.
