Event Details

Tuesday, October 1st at 7:00 pm, Book Discussion and Signing

Calling all music lovers.  An evening of conversation, stories, and appreciation.

300 Songs for 300 Years:

Songs That Have Imortalized New Orleans Music

Editor BRETT MILANO, a Boston-based music critic and columnist, in conversation with local author & Boston Globe Contributor, Clea Simon.

Accompanied by a few live acoustic versions of a New Orleans song or two.

OffBeat Magazine's 30th Anniversary book celebrating New Orleans Tricentennial.

Contains the 300 most iconic New Orleans songs (plus bonus songs we just couldn’t leave out!), from “Bamboula” to “Walkin’ To New Orleans” to “Back That Azz Up” and so many more. Photos, “asides” and commentary from OffBeat‘s team of writers, experts on local music, musicians’ favorites and much more. Edited by author Brett Milano.

“What I expected was a history of great New Orleans songs and songwriters, but what I got was a reminder that these songs are touchstones for times in our lives. I learned how to dance to Art Neville’s “All These Things.” I listened to Fats Domino when I was in my twenties, driving a truck for a living and dreaming of better days. I sang and cried to Susan Cowsill’s “Crescent City Sneaux” trying to figure out life after Katrina. The music of New Orleans is part of me wherever I go and these songs are the road maps to who I was and how I got here today.”—Paul Sanchez, New Orleans songwriter
