REVEL IN THE DAYS THAT FALL BETWEEN JAZZ FEST WEEKEND ONE AND WEEKEND TWO WITH A TWO-DAY FESTIVAL AT NEW ORLEANS’S TOP CRAFT BEER BREW COMPANY
Every year, festivalgoers worldwide head to Louisiana to experience New Orleans’s iconic Jazz and Heritage Festival. The festival spans two weekends in April and May, hosting seven full days of live music, southern food, and local art. For outsiders, seven full days of festin’ is more than enough. For the locals, the days between must be filled with buzz, too. Faubourg Brewing Company’s Daze Between two-day festival keeps the momentum going.
Daze Between Festival
New Orleans’s top craft brewery, Faubourg Brewing Company, will host the two-day music festival, Daze Between, for the second consecutive year. The festival fills Jazz Fest’s mid-week void with an eclectic mix of artists, local brews, and sweet southern charm. From 12 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on May 2 and 3, attendees can find joy in the stacked lineup.
It is no wonder that the local-favorite jam band, Goose, is set to headline both nights of Daze Between. The band’s exponentially growing fan base and nostalgic sound have allowed them to rise in popularity among those raised on Jazz Fest éclat. In true New Orleans fashion, many supporting artists hail from the Big Easy.
Grammy Award-nominated group Tank and the Bangas will perform on day one alongside pop artist Lawrence, indie-pop band Melt, and local favorites J and the Causeways and The Quickening.
Day two will be chock-full of local iconic acts, including the lead singer of the Revivalists, David Shaw, and bassist of the Meters, George Porter Jr. and his Runnin’ Pardners. The wholesome quartet, Eggy, will add more jam into the mix, while Honey Island Swamp Band is bringing all the southern blues rock.
Faubourg Brewing Company has quickly become New Orleans’s most beloved craft brewery. “Every unique neighborhood — or faubourg, as we like to say — adds its own spice to the pot we all share,” says the brewery’s website.
Located in New Orleans’s Gentily neighborhood, Faubourg Brewing Company has been serving the community flagship lagers, IPAs, and ales since 1907. Festival attendees will no doubt enjoy jamming with a beer in hand atop the great lawn of the brewery.
New Orleans is a nursery for visual art. Renowned painter, Frenchy, known for his energetic acrylic portraits, will be live painting both nights of the festival. Attendees can browse his original works alongside other local crafters and artisans. The famed live music magazine, Relix, will also host conversations with local musicians and visual artists.
Daze Between will benefit the non-profit charitable organization Rex Foundation. Founded in 1984 by the Grateful Dead, the foundation “proactively supports creative endeavors in the arts, sciences, and education.” Rex Foundation seeks out individuals and organizations serving communities in need and will present all donations and proceeds from auctioned artworks to New Orleans non-profit organizations.
