Off the beaten path at French Quarter Fest 2012

Written by
That wonderful time of the year is upon us! Spring weather and spring break, crawfish and Sundays on the Fly...and…the 2012 French Quarter Festival!
InthekNOwla wants to give you a native’s peek at some of the music, food, and sweet stuff at this year’s festival. Of course, we all know and love the regulars…Trombone Shorty, Kermit Ruffins, Muriel’s and Pat O’Brien’s to name a few, but we want to make sure you don’t miss out on some truly special gems over this four day stretch.
So, here we go!


MUSIC: The Revivalists from 4:30-5:30 on the Absolut Louis-Louis Pavilion Stage. The Revivalists have been touring since 2008, opening for notable acts as Dr. John, The Meters, and Trombone Shorty. Their infectious, soulful sound will have you grooving before you even know it.
FOOD: Jamaican jerk chicken with rice and steamed veggies from Bennachin’s Restaurant at the Woldenburg Riverfront Jazz Park.
DESSERT: Strawberry with condensed milk snowball from Plum Street Snoballs at Jackson Square.


MUSIC: MyNameIsJohnMichael from 3:45-5:15 on the Malibu Rum Esplanade in the Shade Stage. This local, indie rock band has been making waves all around the country, even performing at such large events as Lollapalooza. You can catch their unique sound of rock with a distinctive New Orleans flair outside of the Old U.S. Mint.
FOOD: Crawfish etouffé and fried crab balls from Deanie’s Seafood at the Old U.S. Mint.
DESSERT: Mango freeze from WWOZ at the Woldenburg Riverfront Jazz Park.


MUSIC: Debauche from 4:00-5:30 on the Greater New Orleans Buick/GMC Dealers Latin/World Stage. Self described as a Russian Mafia band, this is by far one of the most entertaining acts that you will find at the festival. While you might think that Russian Punk is not your style, their use of live instruments and enthusiastic singing will have you believing you understand Russian in the blink of an eye.
FOOD: Baked chicken drummettes, stuffed bell peppers, and macaroni and cheese from The Buttermilk Drop Bakery & Café at the Woldenburg Riverfront Jazz Park.
DESSERT: Creole cream cheese ice cream with Louisiana strawberries from Quintin’s Ice Cream at Jackson Square.


MUSIC: Micheala Harrison from 1:00-1:45 on the Hotel Monteleone Cabaret Stage. If you’re looking for a little soul on your Sunday afternoon, then look no further than this brilliant songstress. Whether in English, French, or Portuguese, Micheala’s music is sure to please and leave you wanting more.
FOOD: Crawfish bread from Lakeview Harbor at the Woldenburg Riverfront Jazz Park.
DESSERT: White chocolate strawberry shortcake up from Haydel’s Bakery at Jackson Square.
