YouTube du Jour: The Walkmen + Ticket Giveaway

Tipitina’s Foundation Free Fridays will cease at the end of August. But that doesn’t mean you can’t catch a show — or three — for free in September.

Currently the club that Fess built is conducting ticket-giveaway contests for three of next month’s top shows: local funk masters Galactic on the 8th, indie iconoclasts the Walkmen on the 22nd, and jam-band staples the Chris Robinson Brotherhood on the 25th.

Of course there’s a catch: Each contest comes with its own, unique set of guidelines. Feeling lucky? Visit Tipitina’s website to enter.

Still thinking about it? Check out these two recent videos from the Walkmen. The first is the official video for the title track of their new album Heaven, and the second is a live clip of them performing “We Can’t Be Beat” (also off of Heaven) at last month’s Lowlands music festival in the Netherlands.


Tipitina’s is located at 501 Napoleon Ave. Box office hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays.
