Headin to NOLA for Jazzfest... REM's not playing the festival but they've been hangin there as they work on their new album. Michael and Scott McCaughey got on stage with Pati Smith last week... check out the video on REM's homepage.
Next Saturday (5/1), Mike Mills and Scott McCaughey will join Bonerama at Tipitina's French Quarter as part of the annual Backbeat Jazzfest Series -- night shows taking place over the weeks of jazzfest around NOLA. Bonerama is a powerhouse of a brass/rock/funk band... one band strongly recommended to see in NOLA.
