As is true every year, we need to pick a date and time to stop adding updates to the grids. Part of it is just the nature of the beast, as there is always something that will change, but most of it is for our end users. Lots of people like to print the grids out before JazzFest begins. In anticipation of that, we will stop making updates to the grids on Monday, April 23rd at 8pm CST.
If something changes after that - we might make the update, we might not.... I will do my best because it is always about the music - but if someone printed out their grids on Tuesday the 24th - they might not catch the change. Just an FYI.
For those of you would will be using our fabulous new 'make your own' feature as well as printing out the grids - please wait until Tuesday, April 24th.... I know - I'm asking a lot - y'all are looking multiple times a day :) but I want you to have the best possible info on your print out .....
It's a mere ten days away - and only 9 days before the FREE Threadhead Thursday show at City Park!!!!! (6pm in the Botanical Garden).
Keep those show updates coming and keep buying those tickets!

It's Almost JazzFest Time!
It's only a few short weeks away..... It's hard to believe the world's most fabulous music event is just three weeks from now - YIPPPPIIIIEEEEEEEEE!!!
Lots of new shows have been added to the grids over the past two weeks. Now the time when edits are made, artists change their schedules, cancel gigs, and a few confusing entries and double bookings come to light :) These things are all part of the natural course of events at JazzFest so do check back lots before it all gets here! Yes, there will be some frustrations - but remember - there is just tooooooo much fantastic music to be upset if something changes :)
Can't wait to see everyone here - and there will be more to come - no doubt!
Special Note to Musicians: Just a reminder - the LAST DAY the grids will be updated is MONDAY, April 23rd. So make sure y'all get your info in and straight by then - PLEASE. Trust me - there will be plenty o 'custom grid makin' and printing going on that night and I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on your band or your gig !!!

St. Patrick's Day Around the Corner
The end of this week will bring another cherished tradition in New Orleans - St. Patrick's Day, followed by the legendary Super Sunday where Mardi Gras Indians meet, and then St. Joseph's Day with all of the extraordinary altars throughout the city.
Living here can be quite a challenge and its best to remember the phrase "it's a marathon, not a sprint."
Spring has sprung and azalea's have bloomed all over the city, pollen decorates cars and porches alike and it is a mere 5 weeks until French Quarter Fest and 7 weeks until JazzFest!!!
The next few weeks should bring news of fanatastic shows and regular gigs alike. While we will sorely miss some this year, as they have moved on to that great gig in the sky, there are new talents out there filling our streets and clubs with wonderful music.
This year, as you begin to plan your evenings of music, I'd like to tell you to consider keeping a day or so free - to go where the wind will blow you and maybe pass by a few of those placed that 'you've always wanted to go there but we never seem to have time,' - or see a band you've never heard of but sounds interesting.
