This past Sunday closed out New Orleans Jazz Fest’s second weekend at the city’s Fair Grounds Race Course. The gigantic festival has become an institution for the city, where eleven stages of music host acts from local factions of jazz, blues, gospel, brass band, and folk-rock alongside headliners. Mobile brass bands toured through the stalls that sold crafts, art, or fried foods (po-boys! beignets! catfish! crab cakes!) picking up revelers as they danced their way from one stage to another. We spent the weekend doing much of the same. Here are the best things we saw during the second weekend of 2014 Jazz Fest. (Take a look at our Best Live Photos from the festival too!)
