St. Patrick’s Day craziness is on a one day hiatus, but there is still music all around town. Indie favorites Caddywhompus are gigging in the Quarter and Alexis and the Samurai are playing their regular Mid City show. Charmaine Neville is keeping tradition strong on Frenchmen. On this day in 1806, sugar refining inventor Norbert Rillieux was born in Louisiana. Now, more to do this Sunday.

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:

Chinquapin Drop

Loyola Indie Rockers Cement Musical Bond with a Label of Their Own



Maybe their pants are a bit tight, or their hair unwashed and unkempt, and sometimes the chain smoking isn’t all that appealing, but the not-so-dapper-oh-so-dandy gentlemen of Chinquapin Records are a charming bunch who plan to impress. 


Today's Events: 6.22.11


June 22, when the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity was founded at Yale, (1844), when Congress created the Department of Justice (1870), when FDR signed into law the G.I.

It’s Louisiana’s own chess master Paul Morphy’s birthday (1837), along with Meryl Streep (1949), Cyndi Lauper (1953), and Erin Brockovich (1960), while the voice of Judy Garland (1969), the moves of Fred Astaire (1987) and the jokes of George Carlin (2008) came to an end.
