Come join us as we celebrate George Floyd’s life. On May 25th, 2020 George Floyd was brutally murdered by Derek Chauvin. Chauvin, along with three other officers are seen restraining Floyd as he screamed “He couldn’t breathe”, “I’m sorry” and “mama”. We watched the 9 minutes of agony and the untimely death of George Floyd.
This same video is what mobilized thousands to take the street and demand justice for George and all others killed at the hands of police brutality and state sanctioned violence.
We ask that you find that same fight you had in the summer of 2020 and please join in Congress Park as we commemorate his life. We will have art, food, we will be marching and so much more. We look forward to seeing you on May 27th 20222 in Congress Park from 5-8pm

Lark Hall presents Glen David Andrews Band Saturday, May 28th . Doors 8pm, Show 9pm.
Glen David Andrews, a native son and a beloved musician of New Orleans, is a warrior for cultural preservation at a time when indigenous traditions are being threatened in the city.
His commanding voice and fierce trombone sound – both a powerful, emotional, and resonant blend of smoothness and grit – as well as his disarmingly honest manner provide a musical experience that never fails to meet the moment.
Glen’s music is packed with beauty, hard-earned truths, compassion, humor, anger, joy, and – most of all – hope.
Glen comes from a storied and extended family of musicians. He was born in New Orleans’ historic Tremé neighborhood, which many consider to be the oldest Black community in the United States. Transfixed by the magic and mystery of the city’s second-line parades, Andrews and his older brother, Derrick Tabb of the Rebirth Brass Band, along with their younger cousin Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, learned the history of the brass band tradition firsthand from iconic figures like Tuba Fats.
Glen has been touring since the age of 14, performing in cities around the world. He has played in New Birth, Lil Rascals, and Tremé brass bands, bringing equal measures of musicianship and showmanship to each. He now fronts his own high-powered ensemble that expertly fuses traditions ranging from jazz to gospel to rock to blues and to funk, all in the same show, sometimes in the same song!
In recent years, he earned prestigious began making headliner status at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, considered the world’s biggest block party the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival
Glen has also made notable appearances at the Voodoo Music Experience, Chicago Folk and Roots Festival, Houston International Festival, The Lincoln Center, Joe’s Pub, House of Blues Nola, Tipitina’s, and Kansas City’s American Jazz Museum.
Glen has released several recordings under his own name including the popular “Redemption” and “Portrait of the Treme Prince” and is featured on the Galactic hit “You Don’t Know” from the album “Ya-Ka-May.”
