The Louisiana Music Factory opens today at its new location – 421 Frenchmen Street. Hopefully, this will be a positive change for their business and traffic. The move from Decatur Street loses the location across the street from the House Of Blues but puts them nested in the heart of the best music neighborhood in the city. They’re located right at the turn from Decatur onto Frenchmen so the foot traffic should be tremendous.
Why do we care so much about this business? It’s one of the pillars that’s keeping New Orleans and Louisiana music alive. They are still a hard media source and specialize in local and regional music. They’ve outlasted both Tower Records and a Virgin Megastore in the Quarter. Let’s hope that the move will help them thrive.
