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.

Free Tickets to the Little Gem

The city's newest jazz venue, Little Gem Saloon, is also its oldest, and you can check it out Wednesday or Thursday night for free. As Richard A. Webster wrote:

The two-story building at 445-449 S. Rampart St. is listed in the National Register of Historic Places because of the significant role it played during three separate periods in the history of New Orleans music.
