4:30 can’t come fast enough for us here at the InthekNOwla offices, cuz we ready to hop on the street car and make our way down to Bayou St. John for the annual Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo. If you’re heading out there too, here’s some of our top picks for the weekend.

Friday May 18

Music: Brass-A-Holics from 5:00-6:00 on the Orleans stage. With the surge in popularity of brass band music, it’s easy to get lost in the pack. However, the Brass-A-Holics manage to avoid this pitfall by combining traditional New Orleans style brass with funk, hip hop, and Washington D.C. Go-Go.
Food: Creole handmade meat pie from Cane River Meat Pies.
Dessert: Strawberry lemon zest popsicle from Meltdown Ice Pops.

Saturday May 19

Music: Bachaco from 11:45-12:45 on the Orleans stage. Composed of band members from North and South America and parts of the Caribbean, Bachaco has cultivated a sound that is uniquely their own. Making their way across the US on their recent tour, Bachaco graces the Orleans stage with their style of reggae, dancehall, and cumbia.
Music: Dana Abbott Band from 5:45-7:00 on the Dumaine stage. Known for their incessant gigging and great live shows, this band has amassed quite a loyal fan base. Backed by her band, which is filled with seasoned New Orleans musicians, Dana Abbott’s music is bluesy and soulful. Her heartfelt songs will make for the perfect soundtrack to the bayou’s picturesque scenery. 
Food: Crabcake poorboy from Katie’s Restaurant.
Dessert: Pina colada smoothie from Lemonade Parade.

Sunday, May 20

Music: Cliff Hines Quintet from 11:00-12:00 on the Dumaine stage. Not too often do you find a young musician who has garnered as much praise as you will with Cliff Hines. This gifted guitarist is managing to keep jazz relevant while at the same time creating incredibly innovative music.
Music: Earphunk from 4:45-5:45 on the Lafitte stage. Due to a lot a late night shows around the city, Earphunk is gaining the reputation as being one of the funkiest bands in town. Make sure you have a good spot in front of the stage with plenty of space, because once the show starts, you’re gonna want to show off all of your best dance moves.
Food: Jerk chicken, rice & peas, callaloo, and plantains from Boswell’s Jamaican Cuisine.
Dessert: Mango sorbet cone from Quintin’s Natural Ice Cream and Sorbet.
