Live music in New Orleans this week (July 5-11, 2016)


Thu. July 7 | The ultra-tuneful New Jersey band — like a young Decemberists, minus the library card, plus a folk/punk sore throat — compiled everything it's released so far on the 2015 collection Everything So Far. February release Cardinal (Run For Cover) offers an immediate addendum. Donovan Wolfington, Sports and Half Waif open at 9:30 p.m. at Siberia.

Guts Club album release
Fri. July 8 | Shit Bug is Lindsey Baker's second album as uneasy country blues singer-songwriter Guts Club, wringing sad-funny narratives from a rusty voice and dreamy honky-tonk ensemble. Yes Ma'am and The Wicked Son open at 9 p.m. at Sidney's Saloon.


Corey Henry & the Treme Funktet album release
Sat. July 9 | The former Little Rascals bandleader and Galactic horn man unleashes a massive, brassy funk block party on his debut Lapeitah (Louisiana Red Hot), also featuring Living Colour's Corey Glover, Parliament's Greg Thomas and one of the last known recordings of the late Trumpet Black. TBC Brass Band and Cole Williams open at 10 p.m. at Tipitina's.
