“Culture & Regulation” Symposium Is a Timely Discussion

“Our job tonight it to turn down the heat,” announced Scott Aiges, Director of Programs, Marketing & Communications for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation. He spoke Thursday night to a full-ish house gathered at the Old U.S. Mint for this year’s Tom Dent Congo Square Symposium on the theme of “Culture and Regulation,” a timely talk considering the recent penalties handed down to St. Roch Tavern. Aiges clearly hoped to avoid the rhetoric that the supposed “war on live music” engenders each time it comes up, and he was largely successful.” - Alex Rawls in My Spilt Milk
