Broadsides, Boyfriend Best at Jazz Fest Thursday, and Friday Highlights

Think of Thursday at a test drive for this year’s Jazz Fest. The lineup was a Locals Thursday lineup and lacked the firepower to get a lot of people out to the Fair Grounds, and the morning rains further discouraged attendance. For that reason, the first day of this year’s festival didn’t feel like much of an event, but there were still some impressive shows. 

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.
