9.16: Breezy’s On Freret Kickstarter Party – Mudlark Theater
There has never been anything secret about our love for Breezy’s, the coffee-shop turned apartment turned multipurpose art space that spent the summer of 2010 as the undisputed king of New Orleans DIY live music venues. It only took six months for the powers that be to shutter Breezy’s first incarnation, but proprietors Mike Twillman and Micah Burns have taken a broad leap towards sustainability by moving Breezy’s underground spirit into a legitimate commercial space: Breezy’s on Freret. This Sunday’s afternoon matinee at Mudlark Theater is part of a final push to bring Breezy’s on Freret up to full speed in time for the jam-packed fall concert season.
Following suit with the indulgent nature of this city, one band is not enough for the average NOLA musician.

02.24: See You In Mexico + Dominique LeJeune + The Rooks + High In One Eye – 3613 Chestnut
Even if one considers them something of a side project to its members’ more well-known bands, the Rooks are still one of the most riveting bands in the city of New Orleans. De rigueur in their militant positivity and their desire to ignite short explosions of punk rock, bassist Greg Rodrigue, Marathon/Choi Wolf drummer Rob Landry and Lollies guitarist Brian Pretus are pure life together on stage, and not necessarily in that old “lightning in a bottle” punk hackney, which this trio seems much too motivated for.
A good bit of natural uncertainty seems to surround new local trio Habitat, who for a time only played intermittently between each member’s full-time band schedule and who have yet to formally record even one original song for public consumption. Through most interpretations, the band is nothing more than a side project: guitarist Andrew Landry [...]
