Today in NOLA 9.12.17


Today, support our neighbors in Houston recover from Hurricane Harvey at a benefit concert at The Willow. The LGBT Community Center hosts a cocktail party. Gasa Gasa screens a film about LCD Soundsystem, while Burgundy Picture House kicks off their horror film series. On this day in 1839, Captain Salvatore Pizzati, an immigrant and leading importer of tropical fruit to New Orleans, was born in Palermo, Sicily. During his lifetime, he was one of the principal benefactors of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart and donated the iconic gate to City Park. Now, learn more about tonight's festivities.

Chet's Summer Vacation is the Most Unlikely Romance of the Season



Chet’s Summer Vacation is a hot, surreal new play that explores the depths of adolescent transformation and sexual introspection when a young man named Chet moves up to the attic of his mother’s house in the heat of the Houston summer only to find release in the irresistible overtures of his new air-conditioning unit.

It’s one week until Mardi Gras, so count down to the explosion of excess with shows from NOLA favorites like Treme Brass Band and Charlie Miller. On this day in 1900, the first electrically lit parade (Krewe of Nereus) rolled and became the first and last parade to actually roll on the streetcar tracks. Now, more events this Tuesday.
