Dirt Tracks and Dirtbags
The former in the title refers to this and this--the latest from the Pic blog suggests the downtown Live at Five concert series might be a good place for NOLA folk to learn about the Capital City's amenities...and yeah, maybe I'm a little harsh on BR sometimes, but it DOES have a dirt track (actually up in Baker).
To be honest, Live at Five really isn't all that bad--at least it's SOMETHING happening downtown, though the last five years or so have seen a slight uptick--not quite a scene yet, a la Lafayette and Jefferson Street, but it's trying.
As for "Dirtbag?" Link.
