Last weekend, on the second and final weekend of Jazz Fest 2016, I checked off longstanding item off the bucket list...see The Roots play live. Last Saturday morning I did just that.
Actor/Comedian David Cross took the stage at the storied Orpheum Theater this week.
Nearly a decade ago, I stumbled upon the record "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" by Chicago based band Wilco. Little did I know that this seminal record would change my life forever. From "I am only trying to break your heart" all the way through "Reservations", the CD literally stayed in my cd player for nearly 6 months. It is and will always be my "Abbey Road". From that point on I feverishly scrubbed back and forth through their discography as if I was one of those DEA dogs searching for loot. I wanted to inhale it all.
Ten years ago today, on August 27, 2005, the historic and storied Orpheum Theater closed it's doors, until today.Re-opening and re-emerging as one of the absolute premier entertainment venues in New Orleans, The Orpheum Theater has been masterfully restored to it's original glory as well as updated to exceed my wildest dreams and expectations.
