THE

Defender Picks

 

Today in NOLA 9.14.17


Today, educate yourself about the climate change in New Orleans with a forum featuring mayoral candidates. Bono will take the stage at the SuperDome as U2 rolls into town, and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra opens their 2017-2018 with a stirring show. The American Italian Cultural Center will screen the classic Stromboli, starring Ingrid Bergman. On this day in 1874, the Battle of Liberty Place occurred. It is considered on of the largest killings of municipal police officers in American history. Five thousand members of the White League descended on the state government offices to try to forcefully impose Democratic candidates. A coalition of black, Italian, and Union militiamen formed the municipal police force. Many men, both defending the government and rebelling against it, died. Finally, federal troops stopped the insurrection and reimposed the Republican government. Now, more to do this Thursday.

Today, head over to the French Quarter for the first day of FQF. The Ogden welcomes Tuba Skinny, while rockers Real Estate will take the stage at Republic. Early Italian prewar cinema will be showcased at the American Italian Cultural Center’s screening of “Everybody’s Lady.” On this day in 1929, Huey Long stood for his impeachment trial. Now, more to do this Thursday. 


Today in NOLA 3.9.17


This Thursday, enjoy the dreamy pop stylings of The Wild Reeds at Gasa Gasa or get down to the bayou americana sounds of the Honey Island Swamp Band. Alternately, explore the cinema of impoverished, post-war Italy thanks to the American Italian Cultural Center's regular movie screenings. Famed author and Oprah fave Colson Whitehead will be discussing his #1 New York Times bestselling novel, The Underground Railroad. On this date in 1804, the Three Flags Ceremony marked the transfer of Upper Louisiana to France, before France transferred it to the United States. Now, more to do this Thursday.
