Live music in New Orleans this week (April 17-24, 2017)

Bob Weir, Sediment & Smog, The Call


Bob Weir & the Campfire Band
Tue. April 18 | Grateful Dead co-founder Bob Weir teamed with singer/songwriter Josh Ritter and the rhythm section of The National to summit Blue Mountain (Columbia), his first new solo material since 1978's Heaven Help the Fool. At 8 p.m. at Saenger Theatre.

Sediment & Smog
Tue. April 18 | The one constant in Scatterjazz's revived weekly series has been Swiss time-bender Simon Berz, whose extended residency continues — and likely peaks — in this showdown with likeminded Dutch madman Klaas Hubner. At 8:30 p.m. at SidebarNOLA.

The Call
Sat. April 22 | With '80s political pop anthems like "Let the Day Begin" and the once-again-timely red scare skeptic "The Walls Came Down," California rock band The Call reunites in New Orleans on Earth Day for a concert to follow the March for Science. Singer and founding member Michael Been died in 2010; guest vocalists include Ray Ganucheau, Michael Divita, JD Bruhl and others. Mairead, Alarm 58 and The Geraniums open at 6 p.m. at Siberia.
