Your downloadable guide to today at Jazz Fest.
The 50 percent chance of rain for the day is not encouraging, but schedule for Saturday at Jazz Fest makes the gamble worth it. In addition to a day that ends with Stevie Wonder and Beck, both of which were great when they played New Orleans in the last couple of years, but also cool locals Hurray for the Riff Raff, King James and the Special Men, Luke Winslow King and the annual appearance by all-star brass band The Midnite Disturbers to name a few.
There's also me. Sweet Crude will play the Gentilly Stage at 12:35 p.m., then I'll interview Alexis Marceaux and Sam Craft from the band in the Allison Miner Music Heritage Stage at 4:30. I always have a good time talking with Sam and Alexis, and we have a lot to talk about so it should be fun.
Here's today's downloadable schedule, complete with picks. Print it or save it to your phone or, considering the possibility of rain, do both.
