As has been the case for many years, The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival will once again take place at the Fair Grounds Race Track in Mid-City. Countless late-night shows and parties will also take place around New Orleans while the festival is in town. Most of those after-shows have not yet been announced, though moe. have already confirmed gigs at the Civic Theatre for April 25 and 26.
