Leonard Cohen, Mahalia Jackson Theater, March 28

In a hushed, velvety baritone that swept over the room like a curtain falling, Leonard Cohen sang his odes to lust and hope, faith and sin. Maybe it was because the concert fell between Passover and Easter, a sanctified time of year for more people than usual, that his ability to move between reverence, blasphemy, flesh and spirit, felt so particularly powerful that night. Maybe it was that it was Cohen’s first-ever concert in New Orleans. Maybe the moon was in the seventh house. In any case, he was sly, he was sensual, he was gracious, he was funny, and after a nearly three-hour concert, I went up to the Saturn Bar where a gang of local musicians were putting on a tribute show, and listened to more Leonard Cohen songs.
