We Need to Dream Bigger Dreams for New Orleans' Musicians

It’s great that Gambit Weekly called this week for better, fairer treatment of musicians in New Orleans considering the outsized role they play in not only shaping the city’s day to day reality but its identity for centuries. We need more voices to point out that the people who make the music are no longer able to afford to live in the city in many cases, and that the economic reality of a musician’s life is brutal. New Orleans does need to figure out ways to make it easier for musicians to make music here.

This Week's Panel

[Updated] So far, New Orleans has had two panels and one symposium to help it get a grip on its changing media landscape - what's one more? Tonight, the Press Club of New Orleans will host a "State of Print Media" forum at the De La Salle High School  (5300 St. Charles Ave.) starting at 6;30 after a half-hour of networking time.
