Jazz Fest Late Night Spotlight: Lotus + Nadis Warriors + Eskmo + Govinda

One of the early gigs that we are most excited about is the Howlin’ Wolf’s festival week kick-off this Thursday, April 28th. Make no mistake, this lineup is a far cry from the traditional roots music that will take over the city for 11 days, but it will help kick off another growing Jazz Fest tradition: pulsing dance parties that stretch till the wee hours of the morning. The Wolf will be headlined by Philadelphia’s and will also be quite the showcase of some lesser known improv-electronic talent to this area (The , a sort-of electronic/world music outfit from Austin, as well as the talented ambient/dance DJ ).

Last year I had the privilege of watching Lotus bring down the walls at Tipitina’s Uptown, in a 3:00am sonic-funk getdown that was undoubtedly one of the highlights of my first weekend. Lotus is pushing a more rock-infused sound these days, and I would only expect them to continue to get bigger and bigger and bigger… nice to see them continue to tap in to the New Orleans market.

The music starts a little after 10:00pm, and Lotus should get things goin’ around 12:00 midnight with taking on the late-night duties (so plan for a long evening…). The tickets are $20 if you buy them here, and will be $25 at the door. See you at the Wolf!
