Sick of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu shutting down flourishing music venues because of dumb permit issues? Me, too. So far he’s gone after some of the best off-the-beaten-path music venues in New Orleans, including Circle Bar and Siberia. Apparently Mitch doesn’t get that Frenchmen Street and Bourbon Street aren’t the only places in town where locals and tourists go to see live music.
Shutting down live music in the rest of the city will have a direct impact on tourism and the perception of New Orleans as an arts-friendly mecca for musicians, filmmakers, actors, and craft artisans.
