This Jazz Fest, Tipitina’s will introduce “The Golden Ticket”, which gets the holder and a guest entry to all the club’s shows for the weekend (and not into Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, as you might think). OffBeat will give away a Golden Ticket for each Jazz Fest weekend to two people who sign up for the Weekly Beat newsletter at our booth at French Quarter Fest, located across Decatur Street from Jackson Square, right in front of the Washington Artillery Park steps.
The first Golden Ticket will get the winner and a guest in to see the Dirty Dozen Brass Band (April 26), J.J. Grey and Mofro with the Revivalists opening (April 27), Galactic (April 27 late show), Dr. John (April 28), the Greyboy Allstars (April 28 late show), Black Joe Lewis and the Honey Bears (April 29) and Instruments-a-Comin’ (April 30).
The second Golden Ticket will get the winner and a guest in for Lettuce (May 2), Ziggy Marley (May 3), the Soul Rebels with Honey Island Swamp Band (May 4), Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe (May 4 late show), Ani DiFranco (May 5), Galactic (may 5 late show) and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk (May 6).
The Golden Tickets also allow the bearers to cut in line and get free drink tickets, Tipitina’s merch and more. They cost $500 each and are available now at Tipitinas.com.
