jazzfest@ZackTeibloom I feel like I’m a sophomore in college and it’s the last week of Literary Modernism. Finals were just around the corner and I was about four books behind. I did what I had to do. I had to skip a class just so I could catch up.

I have to take a break from Jazz Fest today. This festival never stops. And the rare times when it does, the Bulls get themselves into an seemingly endless stream of overtime games.

I have so many shows to review that if I don’t take today off, I’ll never be able to catch up. I don’t even know where to start.

There’s that timeless Earth, Wind and Fire show that closed down the first weekend. The equally goofy and hard rocking TR3 show that ended Andy’s stay in NOLA. There’s the David Fricke interview of John Stirratt of Wilco, where I was more interested in the interviewer than interviewee.

The second weekend had the sitting down headliners: Solomon Burke (in a purple sequin suit) and Ben Harper and the Relentless7 (in a preposterously sweaty shirt.) There was Theresa Anderson and her looping providing my surprise of the festival. The late night shows with the super group Midnite Disturbers, yet another Bonerama show and Umphrey’s playing until 5:20 a.m. last night.

I can barely process it all. I need a day off. I’m going for a nap, drinking a couple red bulls and writing up as much as I can to catch up, then previewing the monster Saturday and Sunday line-ups. Stay tuned.
