What. You thought that just because it’s Memorial Day, we wouldn’t have things to share? Pshhhhhh. We’ve got tons to post this week and plus, don’t forget: It’s Open Mic Week! That’s right. A few weeks ago, some of us went around to various local mics in the area, and now finally, after what seems like forever, we are ready to roll out the photos, videos and absurdly long story to go with it all. We’ll be posting bits and pieces of the story all week and for those who might be interested in seeing the whole thing in print, you can also find it as the cover story in this week’s 72 Hours. But that’s still four days away. In the meantime (and in between time), check out this photo of the drummer Dave Bernet, who helped host the Cafe Nola open mic the week we visited. And why did we start with a photo of this guy? Because that dude is everywhere. No, like really: Dude. Is. Everywhere. Anyway, settle in, friends. Open Mic Week is in full effect!
