Live Music Calendar – This Weekend – June 3-5

R. Kelly @ UNO Lakefront Arena - 6/3/11 (TONIGHT)

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a New Orleans-based music blog to be able to include a scene from Trapped in the Closet on the site with some relevance attached to it’s insertion into the post. Yes folks, tonight R. Kelly is performing on the Lakefront. Is it a coincidence that the South Park Scientology Trapped In The Closet episode was on Comedy Central last night? Probably, but maybe not…here is what’s coming through the Big Easy this weekend. A couple heavy hitters ( and the Maytals) and a mind-bending visual experience (The Shpongletron Experience) are on the live music menu. Also, be sure to check the schedules for the FREE goin’ down tomorrow and Sunday. See below for this weekend’s live music schedule –

Recently, Hodges moved on to L.A. where Abita Beer is hard to find, costs about $6 if located and impromptu parading in the streets will most likely get you arrested on the spot.
