Louisiana Music Factory

Music is vital to the Mardi Gras spirit, reflecting the festive, let-the-good-times-roll culture of the celebration and the Crescent City, where parading and dancing have long been obsessions. Much more than a record store, Louisiana Music Factory is a community hub that nourishes this spirit with free concerts, deep selections in various media, and a highly knowledgable staff.
