YLC Wednesday at the Square feat. Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk

Every year, for a 12-week Indian spring leading up to summer's sweltering cusp, Lafayette Square provides a welcome tree-shaded oasis in the heart of a downtown desert. The Downtown Development District's and Young Leadership Council's Wednesday at the Square concert series launches its 2008 lineup with Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, the reigning Big Easy Award winner for New Orleans' best funk band. The inventive NOLA jambassadors released Listen Here in 2007. Future Wednesday performers include the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Eric Lindell, Irma Thomas and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. Visit the Web site for a complete schedule. The event also features an Artists' Village and food and beverages for purchase. The band Weathered opens. Free admission. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
