Anyone who is watching the tremendous Treme series on HBO has noted
the mild disdain the musicians in the series have for Bourbon Street
venues and “playing for tourists.” I’m sure that there’s plenty of
good music to be heard on the street. You've sent some here. I’d
appreciate, too, some more tips on non-French Quarter, or other off
the beaten track, bars or clubs to hear blues, R ‘n’ B, or jazz.
My list was edited from Jeff Lichtman's which included Non-French quarter
places. Search 78-L archives for his full post. He posted one today on FOOD.
The ONLY Bourban st place I'd consider going to is Irvin Mayfield's new
club. HE is the real thing. And there's something every night. Some of the
other clubs need cab or car.
