Weekend Weather & Tropical Outlook: 8.30, 8.31
By Patrick J. Pearson
In 2014, New Orleans will make it through Labor Day weekend without a major tropical event. However, there will still be rain. A wet Saturday afternoon is likely with a Tropical Airmass coming through. Sunday brings slightly less cloud cover as highs climb to round 90F. A 30% chance of a shower or thunder boomer is also in the mix.
Today in NOLA: 8.30.14
Decadance parties on in the Quarter tonight. If you’re venturing downtown, allow us to suggest the LBGTQ punk benefit concert at Siberia or naked karaoke at Allways Lounge. Rebirth Brass Band and Caddywhompus both play Uptown shows tonight. And it’s not too late to catch MidCity Theatre’s mashup of The Big Lebowski and Shakespeare. We’ve also got an early matinee film and late-night comedy. Make the absolute most of your Saturday:
Pols Remember Katrina
Louisiana's leaders have been busy speaking at memorials and commemorations today. Nine years after Katrina, New Orleanians are all rembering the Storm in their own way. Governor Jindal, Senator Landrieu, and Represenative Cassidy all put out formal statements as well. Full text follows.

Today, we remember Katrina, nine years later. On a lighter note, Decadence is in full swing. Here’s a new reason to take a trip to the Westbank: A$AP Ferg, Big Gigantic, Dillon Francis and more play the Mad Decent Block Party at Mardi Gras World today. Gravity A pay tribute to the Talking Heads at Tiptina’s tonight. Plus, MidCity Theatre mashes up the Bard and the Dude.

Decadence kicks off today. Before it's time for feathers, boas, and parades, the party is starting at clubs downtown. Porn stars, parties, and something called a "dick in a cup contest" are highlights of the opening night.
Ceremonies, Openings, Second Line Commemorate Storm
Nine years ago, Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Gulf Coast. In the storm’s path, over one million were displaced, 1,800 lives were lost and billions of dollars of damage were created. 80% of New Orleans sat underwater; its citizens waited for salvation while three levels of government systematically failed the populace. On the coast of Mississippi, communities from Waveland to Ocean Springs were completely wiped out. To this day, parts of the coast remain vacant, despite a valiant and successful rebuilding attempt.
Baptist Convention on Deck
Southern Decadence will dominate this weekend downtown, but a different type of convention is coming to town on Monday (9.1). The National Baptist Convention (NBC) USA, Inc. is coming to town September 1st through 5th. 18,000 Baptists will flood the City for seminars, elections, tours, and of course, lots of praying.

Are the Saints ready for the real season? Make your judgements tonight, when they play the Baltimore Ravens in the final game of the preseason. Tonight’s your last chance to catch Bug at the Shadowbox. In music, Terence Higgins and Cliff Hines team up for an inspired duo performance and the band with the most interesting resume in indie rock arrives at the BEATnik. Tonight’s picks are enlightening:
Gentilly Fights Blight, Remembers Katrina
Park Pushed for Site of Levee Breach
Katrina is nearly nine years passed, but reminders remain. The blighted site of one levee breach in Gentily is set to become a park. This morning, representatives from the Levees.org advocacy group announced plans to work with neighborhood residents and the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority to transform the vacant space at 5000 Warrington Drive into an open-air exhibit and garden.
Today in NOLA: 8.27.14
