Buku, FQF Reschedule, Hogs Cancels, and the Concert Business Takes a Time Out

Two more shoes dropped in New Orleans as French Quarter Festival and the Buku Music + Art Project announced that they are postponing their events. Buku is moving the festival originally scheduled for March 20 and 21 at Mardi Gras World to the Labor Day weekend, according to a statement published on the Buku Web site. At this point, there’s no word on how much of the lineup that included Flume, Illiium, Charlie XCX, and Megan Thee Stallion will be part of the festival in September.

Last Week: Jazz Fest, Ting Tings, Benjamin Booker and More

Photographer Patrick Ainsworth was busy during Jazz Fest and the nights during it. He shot Father John Misty to accompany Stephanie Chen's review of the show, as well and Benjamin Booker and The Ting Tings, whose opening band Kaneholler features Steven Tyler's daughter Chelsea.  We've already run some of his Jazz Fest photos to accompany reviews of the first Saturday and Sunday, but we have more good shots than we could fit in the stories.
