Today in NOLA: 12.25.14


The fat man in the red suit jingled and jangled his way through the bayou last night, but the music never stops in New Orleans. Benny Grunch and the Bunch are kicking off an early 12 Yats of Christmas performance in Mid-City. Later, the grownups can see live jazz. On this day in 1913, radio personality and musician “Candy” Candido was born. Now, more to do this Christmas.

Today in New Orleans 12.25.12


Merry Christmas! There’s plenty to do this NOLA Noel, from brass on Oak Street to free dinner on N. Rampart. On December 25, 1861, the Mason and Slidell affair or “Trent Affair,” ended when the Commissioners were sent to the British. Now, back to what to do this beautiful festive day.

This Sunday, Elephant 6 fans can see Of Montreal, parents can bring their young musicians to Tip’s for a free workshop with Johnny Vidacovich, and fan kids can nerd out all day at Comic Con. Happy Birthday Brit! B. Spears was born in Kentwood, Louisiana on December 2, 1981.


VIDEO: 10 NOLA Christmas Songs To Help Pass the Week


As Monday ticks down, there's only one thing on most of our minds this week. No matter if you keep Christmas with a turducken, a giant bonfire or a special prayer to beat the Dirty Birds, the end of the week can't come soon enough. So, to get ready, here are videos of 10 songs that we make merry to here in New Orleans. Click through to view.


Wednesday at the Square


By Laura Cayouette

Another great Wednesday at the Square featured Benny Grunch and the Bunch and Bucktown All-Stars. The evening kicked off Grunch and company, best known for their local Christmas tunes like, "The Twelve Yats of Christmas." The three man group is fun, not despite their silliness, but because of it. What local can't relate to the lyrics of "Ain't No Place to Pee on Mardi Gras Day?"
