  NOLA

Krampus Gras

NOLA Fetes Demon Who Visits the Night Before St. Nick



Krampus is the stuff of nightmares. His name is derived from the German word Krampen, or to claw, and the night before Nikolaustag (Saint Nick’s Day) the beast creeps into town and beats the children into being nice. Of course, New Orleans will be feting this anti-hero with a mini-fest on December 5.


Today In NOLA: 8.31.15


Don’t let the Monday blues get you down! Today in Nola, find Gretchen Peters rocking at Chickie Wah Wah or catch the chilling play Flowers in the Attic at the Old Marquer. Phoenix, a dark movie about a concentration camp survivor, is showing at Prytania Theater, and the Southern Food and Beverage Museum is going to be Cooking Up A Storm! On this day in 1922, the New Orleans Rhythm Kings recorded "Tiger Rag." Now, more to do this Monday. 


Tropical Outlook: Erika Disturbed, Not Depressed; Fred Forms


Erika was once a hurricane, but the downgrades continued as she stormed west. By Saturday (8.29), she was just depressed. Now the National Weather Service (NWS) says Erika is nothing more than a “disturbance.” Eyes have turned to the African coast where Tropical Storm Fred has already formed.


Final Round of K10 Remembrances Begins


The crescendo of Katrina remembrances has peaked. While events will continue through the anniversary of the levee breaches, on Saturday (8.29) a day of service marked the exact anniversary of the Storm’s landfall. After a wreath laying ceremony, Mayor Landrieu delivered yet another speech, but this address aimed to draw the remembrances to a close.


Today in NOLA: 8.30.15


Today is Huey Long's birthday! In the 21st century, K10 commemorations continue across the city. The Saints are back for some more preseason action. A Brando documentary is screening at the Prytania and the Hot 8 Brass Band is playing their regular gig. Click through for details.


Saturday! Secondline


A recollection from Chris Romaguera

People joined today's “The World’s Largest Secondline” from spots all along the route, but one of the larger gathering spots was on Japonica and N. Galvez. There, on the levee wall, an annual ritual of prayers, song and dance was held.


Five From '05

Looking Back at Daily Life in August 2005



At this point, the average New Orleanian has been bombarded with so many K10 stats that honorary doctorates in math are in order. NoDef’s staff decided to eschew another day of spreadsheets in favor of five fast markers of a few of the ways that our daily lives have changed since 2005. We offered up some factoids about sports a decade ago, lace we ate and partied—accompanied by a serious mention of voting.


Today in NOLA: 8.29.15


Today is the tenth anniversary of Katrina's landfall and there are plenty of ways to mourn and remember. After the somber day, relax with a completely unrelated parade uptown, some blues on Frenchmen, or a Bear party at the Phoenix.


"Don't Call Me Resilient"


For two weeks, New Orleans has been inundated with coverage of the Katrina/Federal Flood. And more than a few locals are sick of it. In particular, the City’s official slogan “resilient” is drawing fire. After a week of social media backlash, viral signs are now popping up to critique the catchphrase.


Stoked for OAK: Mid-Summer Mardi Gras Ready to Roll


Ready to let loose after a week of #K10 saturation? The Krewe of O.A.K. is set to roll their annual Mid-Summer Mardi Gras on Saturday (8.29). For the uninitiated, the uptown parade is like a warm weather taste of Carnival except a bit more outrageous—literally.
