Where we'll be if the rain holds off.

This morning at 11 a.m., the French Quarter Fest starts its 30th year in Jackson Square, Woldenberg Park, and the Bienville Statue Stage in the 400 block of North Peters Street. The forecast isn't pretty for what has been named "Locals' Lagniappe Day", but it should be a good day of music for those who brave the possible rain.

Here are our picks for the day - not necessarily the best, but artists that we're into right now, ones we want to see in these settings, or people we don't often get a chance to see.

Sunflower City - WWL-TV Stage, 2 p.m.
Egg Yolk Jubilee - Capital One Bank Riverside Legacy Stage, 3:30 p.m.
Racines feat. Steve Riley - Chevron Cajun/Zydeco Stage, 3:45 p.m.
Susan Cowsill - Absolut Louis-Louis Pavilion Stage, 4:30 p.m.
The Soul Rebels - Capital One Bank Riverside Legacy Stage, 5:15 p.m.
