What's going on this weekend? First, your Gambit weekend forecast from WWL-TV meteorologist Derek Kevra:
"No one likes to be the bearer of bad news... especially when it's a holiday. But hey, weather is relative right? So when I say that the weekend forecast has a very high chance for showers and storms, and some of that rain is expected to be heavy, that's not necessarily bad? I mean, there is still reason to celebrate, rain or shine (thank you servicemen and -women everywhere). Plus, the rain will keep high temperatures in the upper 80s. So, there's that."
And for what you should be doing this weekend (despite the rain), here's Noah Bonaparte Pais on the WWL Eyewitness Morning News with Eric Paulsen. Tips: Brass Bed at Gasa Gasa (read Alex Woodward's cover profile of the band on the rise), Debauche at Circle Bar, Paul Mooney at Howlin' Wolf and, of course, the Essence Music Festival.
