Sunday’s Jazz Fest picks: Buffett, Byrne or Benson?


By Doug MacCash

If you're a Jazz Fest veteran who's had your tickets bought and cubes circled for weeks now, then you already know (sing it like Big Freedia) what shows you're not gonna miss on this glorious Sunday (April 29). If so, you're free to stop reading right now.

If, however, you consider deciding what to listen to during Jazz Fest as confusing and anxiety-producing as exiting the Pontchartrain Expressway onto I-10 East, then scroll on down for my expert (I hear you laughing) advice.

Back in the late 1970s, you prayed for someone to rescue you from disco, but you found people with torn T-shirts and diaper pins stabbed through their cheeks a bit off-putting. Then you discovered this tall, smart, chilly dude in a floppy suit and you were saved. You are a David Byrne fan. Get ye to the Gentilly stage at 5:30. (I went to art school, so I'm required by law to attend the Byrne show).
