Holy smokes. Easily the most star power ever in a single year. Easily.

I'm sure this will upset you purists who want it all to be locals, but personally I think there's plenty of room for both big name headliners and all the great local stuff. I always manage to spend plenty of time in the Economy Hall, no matter who is on Acura later that day.

I was reading off the list to my wife; she kept saying "who?" until I sang a line to her of some of the artist's music, evoking a "wow" from her with each one.

Once my two graduate this year I can start thinking about going back. Given the crowds I think one of the premium passes they have added would make it reasonable for my wife (she bemoans being crowded in there "with 300,000 of your closest friends").

Not annually. Every 2 or 3 years. Same with Buffett.

The brass pass (which is what you're thinking about) also gives extra support to WWOZ, which is worthwhile if you care about local traditional NOLA music. It's expensive but very much worth it if you don't like crowds.

Actually, I did tell her about the passes that have special seating and hospitality; she thought that it would be well worth it! Now all I have to do is figure which weekend we can go to...
