Today in NOLA 9.11.17


Today kicks off the citywide culinary celebration Restaurant Week, so dine on a dime at NOLA's top spots. Mayoral candidates will gather to discuss their policies as they relate to the city's music industry. Alt rockers Modest Mouse perform at The Civic, while Instant Opus returns to the Hi-Ho. On this day in 1722, the state’s first recorded hurricane wiped out New Orleans. If you're looking for something to do tonight besides find a good T.V. to watch the New Orleans Saints vs. the Minnesota Vikings in the season opener, then read on for more details below. 


Today in NOLA 9.7.17


Today, educate yourself about the city's housing issues ahead of the fall election with a forum featuring mayoral and City Council candidates. A local maker's market sets up shop in the Carver Theater. The Orpheum screens a 1970s classic, while Metro Station stops along their 10th anniversary tour for a show at The Willow.  On this day in 1899, pioneering traditional jazz drummer "Little" Joe Lindsay was born in New Orleans. He is perhaps best remembered for his work with Louis Armstrong, which began as early as 1916-1917 and carried on throughout both of their careers. Now, more to do this Thursday.


Deepa Soul to Play a Homecoming Show at the Carver


New Orleans daughter Deepa Soul announced an epic homecoming on Thursday (7.6). This fall, she will be joined by her 18-piece band The Love Soul Orchestra for a musical event dubbed “Creole Woman (Rebirth of a Love Evolution),” set to take place at the Historic Carver Theater. 


Today in NOLA 5.29.17


On this Memorial Day, race your way down Bourbon for a great cause, check out some original comedy by an all female cast, celebrate the return of a New Orleans legend, and end your day with some wonderfully curated experimental music. On this day in 1948, the famous Streetcar Named Desire (I.E. Desire Line) was closed to the public. The line was converted to busses shortly after. Now, more to do this Monday.
