Nola Live Music Letter

Editor's Note: There is so much live music in New Orleans, and sometimes it can be rather overwhelming to know what to hear, where to go, or what to do. Writer and music lover Wesley Hodges is giving weekly previews of the live music happening in New Orleans as well as some sneak previews into what is coming up. For a full view of Wesley's suggestions, check out his facebook page

Hi folks, it was a great weekend as always for Krewe du Vieux, I hope you made it down there and got the chance to catch some live music around town over the weekend. Keeping this week's newsletter very brief but wanted to let you know I've got a pair of tickets to this Thursday night's Yonder Mountain String Band + G Love and Special Sauce show at the Joy and you can enter to win those here.

Enjoy the week and continuing lack of winter weather. It's Carnival Time folks!
