Milo’s Music Parlor

Hosted ByKim Vu

Milo's Music Parlor, hosted by the President and Janitor of Milo Records, Kim Vu, is an intimate conversation with artists shaping the contemporary New Orleans musical landscape. Living legends, young upstarts, and national and international acts making a pass through the city play an intimate set to a small audience of music appreciators, then step away from their instruments and talk with Kim. The audience join in the conversation. Milo's Music Parlor is a unique New Orleans night out: something between soundcheck and speakeasy, on-stage, back-stage, and after-show party.
