It was an interesting article and I know the local music scene hasn't recovered to the point of pre-Katrina. Before there would hardly have been a month without someone playing somewhere that I would go see. Now days that doesn't happen as much, one the local clubs don't use as much live music, also some of my favorite performers have moved away from New Orleans so they aren't here to play as much.
