As much as I was a fan of Foreigner, this ain't Foreigner. It's Mick Jones and a bunch of guys who grew up listening to the real Foreigner.

This ain't Skynyrd, either.

This ain't the Beach Boys, either..although at least there, you have one of the original singers in Mike Love.

But I'd be there for the B-52's if I was there.

I'd go for the Pitbull show. At least you know it'd be fun music and dancing.

A Mardi Gras celebration without any jazz? Yeesh. Reminds me of a scene from Ghost World:

@Joshua that's what they bring in the New Orleans street performers that perform prior to the headlining acts.
