NOLA INDIE ROCK FEST II
Glasgow is thrilled to headline night 3 (Saturday March 7th) of this season's New Orleans Indie Rock Fest, the premier event for original rock in the city. New Orleans' rock scene is remarkably fertile right now, with some of the best of the bunch playing this 3-day extravaganza. There's Caddy Whompus, an amazingly prodigious (18 & 19 yrs old!) noise-pop duo; the undeniable blues/folk/rock collective known as Silent Cinema; The Public is making their long-awaited return after the tragic loss of their bassist Ryan Plattsmier; The Pharmacy, who came all the way down from Seattle to be a part of the scene here because they heard of the amazing work being done by the New Orleans Indie Rock Collective to help unite the scene here; the list goes on.
This festival is the New Orleans rock scene made manifest. The camaraderie is palpable and the amazing music speaks for itself. Its a pleasure to share an event with these bands and an honor to headline the final night.
Here's the breakdown, in case you've been away on mission work in a remote jungle:
Thursday 3/5 | Hi-Ho Lounge
The Blue Party
Friday 3/6 | One Eyed Jack's
Big Rock Candy Mountain
Saturday 3/7 | The Howlin' Wolf
