If you can’t be inside Tipitina’s tonight for Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue’s CD release party, Liveset will webcast the entire concert for free live on its website. The New Orleans-based company, which streams concerts in HD, will also make the show available for purchase in the coming weeks. Shorty’s new album, For True, goes on sale Tuesday, September 13. The band will play 11 songs from the 14-track album at the release party tonight.
The concert starts at 9 p.m. local time. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will benefit Trombone Shorty’s Horns for Schools program as well as The Roots of Music. Ivan Neville, 5th Ward Weebie, and other musicians who make guest appearances on For True, will join Shorty and Orleans Avenue on stage. Fans can be part of the show by using the hashtag #ForTrue on Twitter during the concert. Tweets including the hashtag will be shown on an on-stage screen for the band and audience to see.
