It's no secret that New Orleans is missing its music. In the face of COVID-19, venues and entertainers have had to come up with creative solutions that promote safety, as well as the music culture so near and dear to the city. Here are five music events happening this week.
Drive-In Concert With The Revivalists
For those who were upset when they missed the Revivalists at Jazz Fest, you can join the hometown heroes this Friday, July 24, from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Lakefront Arena for some great music and a chance to hear it live. Lakefront Arena, 6801 Franklin Ave., thenoladrivein.com
