January 16 through January 24 brought a great mix of music to New Orleans. With both big-name and local artists appearing in all types of clubs and amphitheaters, The Big Easy offered up a great opportunity to head out and release some stress while listening to fantastic music.
An odd mix of big names and local acts headline New Orleans nightclubs this week -- Styx, for instance, is at the House of Blues the same night the Howlin' Wolf hosts a New Orleans Musicians Clinic benefit with the New Orleans Suspects and special guest Dr. John. Tipitina's has a huge weekend, with two sold-out Radiators reunion shows and a rare club appearance by B.B. King. Those and other options for the week ahead include:
