Square deal

Last night it was YLC 's Wednesday at the Square presented by Hancock Bank. Great music, crowds, great food and libations. It was the Radiators last night (top left) but the series has 24 bands over 12 Wednesdays ending on June 20. Thought I would give a better feel for the fun with a montage.

On the right top is a photo from three weeks ago. Local favorite Irma Thomas treated the crowd to some of her new tunes. When the sun went down, she broke into some of her old favorites. -- that immediately brought out the white handkerchiefs and everyone started "second lining." Wish I could have captured some of that on film (okay electronic circuitry), but the light was just to weak.

If your not "of" New Orleans, check this link to learn about the "second line" and get some real New Orleans culture.

We were just talking about the Lafayette Square concerts this morning on our training ride.

There's something similar in downtown Baton Rouge now, called Live at Five - a few weeks ago, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue played. But I would have loved to have seen Irma Thomas!
