Nola Live Music Letter

Greetings folks,

Hope your month of July has been great thus far. These letters will return with greater frequency as we get a little closer to fall, but for the time being, they'll arrive every 2-3 weeks. I've updated the concert and new releases calendars below and added some new music recs.

I'm working on a more nationally-focused concept similar to this, delivered quarterly. If you'd like to sign up for that, you can do so here: http://eepurl.com/cO0qpv
Check out my summer "Humid Ciddity" playlist (music for floating in pools) here, a Best of 2017 collection, some music recs and the refreshed concert calendar below.For a more comprehensive local listing of concerts, check out WWOZ's Livewire. Have a great week.
