I’m still planning my itinerary for Louisiana. New Orleans is certainly on the map. Also Baton Rouge. This will likely be the week of March 20th. Please leave any comments or suggestions below – especially looking for spots off the beaten path.

    Thanks for all of these great comments everyone. Sounds like it may be mayhem at Chimes. Probably too late to change. We can see how it goes. Definitely going to hit the Mudd-in and Chelseas.. See you all later... T.

    Sunday night is open mich nite at the Neutral Ground, a reasonably famous coffee shop in New Orleans. It's right off St. Charles Ave down Soniat. Also, if you're looking for Jazz music, run yourself down Frenchman St. and hit up Snug Harbor. Give me a call if you need anything at all, ok? (xxx) xxx xxxx. Elizabeth Levy. Good luck and happy hunting!

    You will gtravel through the Mississippi delta and you really need to see this web page. http://www.deltablues.net/index.html Did you hear anything about the band "Justin Baily" in Baton rouge?

    A note to Kirsten Squint: A "jule joint" which is known to people outside the community is not a juke joint. Juke joints are clandistine, illegal and fun. With the proper guide, after several miles of dirt road, you will come to a small building, often with an exterior of corrugated metal. When you park among the numerous cars already there, several faces appear in the door, apprehensive until your guide identifies him or herself. The hum of the generator will let you know you are miles beyond utilitiy lines. Relax, you're among friends. Once inside, the music is among the best in the world. You're safe! Enjoy! You're free to make any choices you wish. Or none. David

    You should head to the northshore. There is a great little place in Mandeville called Ruby's Roadhouse. Lots of really great local blues talent. You would have a kicking time! :)
