An Epic Playlist of New Orleans Indie Rock.
The Foburg Festival , which first debuted ten years ago this March, was a South by Southwest-type event in which a single wristband gave festival-goers access to a variety of venues on Frenchmen Street featuring local and national indie rock bands. The Revivalists were on the bill, as were Glasgow and Alexis Marceaux, acts that would eventually morph into Sweet Crude. Foburg was the crowning achievement of the New Orleans Indie Rock Collective, a group of musicians, managers, and promoters who pooled their expertise to help foster the burgeoning New Orleans indie rock scene. New Orleans has a vibrant rock and roll history. But in the years following Hurricane Katrina, young rock musicians throughout the city were playing music that was nontraditional by both New Orleans and larger rock and roll standards. Which is another way of saying indie rock began having a moment in the city. Still, the disparate bands were finding success filling larger and larger venues, and the Collective saw potential in uniting indie rock acts across the city. There were four CDs in total with styles ranging from the abrasive bar band rock of Happy Talk Band to the electronic pop of Buttons to the indie folk of Loren Murrell to the quirky Talking Heads-inspired rock of Glasgow.
