A year-long look at live music in New Orleans continues with Surfer Blood at Gasa Gasa.
[Updated] My Spilt Milk's contributors and particularly photographers Patrick Ainsworth and Steven Hatley see a lot of music in a year--more than we write about. In 2016, we want to document that and put all those photos in one place. This post will be updated regularly, and each time it is freshened, we'll draw attention to it again. When it gets too big, we'll create a Part II, Part III, and more if necessary. Whatever the case, we'll have a photographic record of the year in music as it happens.
We start at the end of 2015 when Usher played the Allstate Fan Fest December 30 in the French Quarter in the Jax Brewery Parking Lot as part of the festivities leading up to the Allstate Sugar Bowl January 1. The night was cool enough that he had to dress for the weather, but he's Usher. He made it work.
