MusicMonday: Jazz Fest, Contest Update, Free Downloads

New Orleans Jazz Fest and Contest Updates

Just a quick update to let you know that I'm heading to New Orleans on Wednesday to enjoy the second long weekend of Jazz Fest! It will be my first trip to the Big Easy -- a town I've been wanting to visit for quite some time. And I've been longing to attend the annual Jazz Fest for many years as well. So what finally got me to go? Well, Pearl Jam of course! They're this weekend's headliner -- yes, Jazz Fest actually includes many genres of music -- not just jazz.

Click the image above for a full list of this year's acts. And check back here soon for a recap of my trip. Want an added incentive to check back? Well, you've all been really patient -- so I guess it's time I tease you a bit on the next EntertainmentBlogger contest. It's music-related. And it will launch in a May MusicMonday column. So stay tuned!
