Event description

Description

Order the two-day pass and receive a free copy of the N.O.-F.I. A live documentary of New Orleans Garage/Surf/Punk cd that was recorded live at the Mermaid Lounge.

A 2-day festival at Truck Farm to celebrate the Mermaid Lounge, an independent rock club in New Orleans from 1993-2004 located in a 100 year old former po-boy shop / bar that was wedged into a small space off a little back street called John Churchill Chase in the city’s Warehouse District.

Proceeds will benefit The New Orleans Crafts Guild, a non profit organization that trains high school students in construction skills, including plastering, masonry and metallurgy. The group trains students to become apprentices to work for building contractors while continuing to receive academic instruction from the Guild. Guild founder Jeff Treffinger hopes that Guild apprentices can put their newfound skills to work to help rebuild New Orleans.
