Acoustic music in New Orleans?

Suggestions for acoustic music venues in New Orleans? I'll be visiting NOLA in a couple of weeks and would appreciate some advice about likely spots to hear live music. My tastes run to acoustic Americana, a touch of twang okay, bluesy too, and I already have a basic notion of the more touristy Dixieland scene from previous visits (all of them pre-Katrina). As examples of my interests I would mention the Nawlins-based musicians Mary Gauthier and Anders Osborne (or at least his folkier side). Thanks!

The Conference Room Is Too Loud

In my office there is a small conference room, 81"x96", maybe 18' ceiling. The walls are sheetrock. The echo is extremely irritating. In order to quiet the room a bit I want to mount squares of corkboard, 12"x12"x1/4". I will use 12 to 20 of these squares on one of the 81" walls. Will this be reasonably effective in lessening the echo? [more inside]

acoustic performance of MAPS

I am looking for a Yeah Yeah Yeah's acoustic performance. MAPS. It has dissappeared off Youtube and I am dying. Its Karen Oh and the guitarist. Its like a sit down session, not a true live show. In the beginning of the video she holds her hair in front of her face like a mustache and says "its karen OOOOHHHH". Its deadly. Please help me find a link to the video somewhere.

name that song? it's killin' me...

what's the name of that song, couple years back, cello, acoustic guitars, male and female duet, b&w video with the camera slowly spinning from the inside of a circle of singers/musicians and a portion of the lyrics go something like "hurricane come knock me down" (or maybe it was 'tornado'?) is it just me or is it impossible to search for song lyrics on the intarwebs!

Lo-Fi Indie Folk recommendations

I've just discovered The Mountain Goats (John Darnielle) courtesy of Large Hearted Boy and some positive online reviews.

Any other recommendations for acoustic indie lo-fi folk (if that is a category)? [more inside]

General advice sought on acoustic or electro/acoutstic guitars

I'd like some advice on 6-string acoustic-electric guitars. I'm considering buying one for my "home studio" setup (a computer with a MIDI keyboard, a mic, and a couple of guitars), preferrably for less than $400. Does anyone here own an acoustic-electric they'd recommend? Any general advice on this type of guitar? I'm looking for a bright, clear sound, and with a versatile EQ or tone knob.
