From live music to jambalaya cookoffs, this weekend in New Orleans for June 24 through June 27, 2021 is a busy one. Galactic returns to Tipitina’s, and INZO heads to Republic NOLA. Over at The Howlin’ Wolf, catch the Hot 8 Brass Band on Friday or Sunday. The Broadside hosts Carnaval, and Sierra Green and the Soul Machine plays at Cafe Negril. Tristan Dufrene heads to Santos Bar and the Iceman Special play a special Krewe du Void Summer Meltdown set at d.b.a.
Whatever floats your boat, you have plenty of options!
