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.

Aurora Nealand and Monocle – Milo’s Music Parlor – It’s New Orleans

You may know her as the head rose of Aurora Nealand and the Royal Roses, one of New Orleans’ pre-eminent interpreters and performers of traditional New Orleans jazz music.

As if that wasn’t enough, Aurora performs in at least three other bands, and a score of other musical projects, often including international musicians from as far-flung places as Pakistan and India. She’s also written and directed three theatre pieces, and has studied with composers from Oberlin to Paris. Oh, and don’t forget the


Sound Observatory of New Orleans project, an artist in residency space she is developing from scratch in a formerly blighted New Orleans shotgun home. It’s amazing she has time to stop by Milo’s Music Parlor and tell all.
