Kettle Black at Ogden After Hours

/// September 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Kettle Black is a quiet dance, a tiny explosion expanding exponentially; it is funky, heartfelt, and unmistakably New Orleans. The brainchild of singer-songwriter Keith Burnstein, the band is a double percussion discussion that fans out the African and Cuban influences found in New Orleans music to create a new American songbook.

Alexandra Scott & Her Magical Band at Ogden After Hours

/// September 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Alexandra Scott’s music has equal footing around a campfire or in a musical den on St. Claude Avenue. At her core, she’s a singer & urban songwriter with a country sense of the world that shows up in her songs. A native of the countryside of Virginia who lived all over, but never felt at home anywhere until she found her way to New Orleans in 2000, her folk-inflected songs resound with the movements of graceful galloping horses, with beats…
