Noisey In Cooperation with Roadburn Festival: Nola, A Screening & Live Q&A, Friday, April 10, V39, Tilburg (NL)

Posted on Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Last year, Noisey produced a documentary that gave us an incredible insight into the people and environment that created a fantastic hotbed of talent in the New Orleans area.

We at Roadburn are great disciples of that down tuned, distinctive NOLA sound – we’ve played host to Down, Crowbar and Eyehategod in previous editions of the festival. This year we invited the latter back, and asked Goatwhore along for the ride too. With Eyehategod  and Goatwhore in Tilburg, we couldn’t resist getting Jimmy Bower and Mike IX Williams, plus Sammy Duet and Ben Falgoust together with Noisey’s editor in chief, Fred Pessaro, to spill even more beans about the NOLA scene.

Fred comments: “I’m ecstatic to bring Noisey‘s multi-part series NOLA to one of the greatest festivals in the world… Roadburn! Excited to join Jimmy and Mike in answering your questions about the area, players, and sounds that helped form this highly influential scene!”

Following the Q&A, which Fred will host, there will be a screening of the full documentary as part of Roadburn Cinema. Read on for the lowdown on the documentary…

Noisey is proud to present NOLA: Life, Death and Heavy Blues from the Bayou, a seven-part series examining the people and the culture that helped foster bands like DOWN, Eyehategod, Crowbar, Goatwhore and many others. From the crawfish-littered tables of the secluded Anselmo compound to a fishing boat with Eyehategod in the swamps, we’ll discuss the bands, Hurricane Katrina, drugs, suicide, murder, and records that helped shape the New Orleans sound known the world over.

Produced & Directed by Jimmy Hubbard and Fred Pessaro.

The Q&A plus documentary screening will take place on Friday 10 April at V39, Tilburg, The Netherlands.
