Today in NOLA: 6.03.16
The humidity is rising, but so is the volume today. Mystikal, Debauche, and Ike Stubbleflield are all setting their amps to 11 this evening. Plus, check out an art opening, the Stooges, or Colin Lake. On this day in history, men working at the Mint lost their title as federal employees after Louisiana seceded from the Union (1861), and Gov. Henry W. Allen delivered his farewell address at the end of the Civil War (1865). Don't lose today before checking these out:
Today in NOLA/Jazz Fest After Hours: 5.01.16
Trombone Shorty is scheduled to close Jazz Fest today, but the gray skies do not like good for the Fest. Have no fear; there are plenty of night shows to check out. On this day in 1862, Union soldiers officially captured New Orleans. Now, more to do this Sunday.
Today in NOLA: 3.28.16
Tonight is a great opportunity to check out some local music before the festival season influx begins. Colin Lake, Luke Winslow King, the Crooked Vines, and King James are all playing in town. Delta Flight 727 from New Orleans to Dallas was hijacked and rerouted to Cuba on this day in 1984. Now, more 2016 events.
Colin Lake Effect (Video)
NOLA musician Colin Lake once told NoDef, "My music pulls a roots audience. That means that even if all goes well, it takes a bit longer to catch on." Indeed, Lake's 2015 release "One Thing That's for Sure" is on its way to classic status but the rise has been more measured than mercurial. In keeping with his slow Southern style, Lake waited a few months before rolling out the video for the single "The World Alive."
Sending the Old Man Home: Margaritaville's Last Night
It's 5 o'clock somewhere...but not at Margaritaville on Decatur anymore. After 22 years of serving up cheeseburgers in paradise, the French Quarter staple locked up the doors for the very last time on Tuesday (6.30) night. Margaritaville hosted many national acts including Jimmy Buffett, Jared Niemann, Zac Brown, Mac Mcanally and Thom Sheperd. Likewise, the local acts have had a great run at Margaritville and will be looking for other gigs in the area.
Jazz Fest After Hours: 5.01.15
Tonight, the music truly never stops. After the fest ends, Grateful Dead 50th anniversary celebrations are in store all around NOLA. If your face has already been stolen, there is plenty of funk to groove to with the New Master Sounds in town. Local singer-songwriters Colin Lake, Maggie Koerner, and Kristin Diable are all gigging as well. Click on through for full listings.
Jazz Fest After Hours: 4.25.15
Whether you braved the rain at the Fest today or rested up during daylight, there are so many acts tonight, that it is like an entire second festival. Trombone Shorty is hosting an all-star Bash, The Meter Men are playing with Phish’s Paige McConnell. Galactic is at Tips. Dumpstaphunk, Mississippi Rail Company, the London Souls, and Colin Lake are just a few of the acts rounding out the evening. Click on though for a full roundup.
T-Bois Announces Lineup
Louisiana is a state that knows how to fest. So much so that sometimes the event blend together. However, only one fest features a giant, burning alligator head rising out of the bayou: T-Bois Blues Blues Fest. The gathering held on an alligator farm in LaRose will be returning on March 20 and 21 with a newly announced lineup.
Today in NOLA: 9.18.14
Thursday evening means it’s time for Jazz in the Park. Shamar Allen and the Underdawgs perform tonight, along with Colin Lake and the Dr. Martin Luther King Charter School Marching Band. For live music and air conditioning, drop in on singer-songwriter Edward David Anderson at Ogden After Hours. Plus, a special screening of short films shot exclusively on Super 8. Get all the details after the jump.
Today in New Orleans 4.2.14
Tonight, pianist Marcia Ball is performing at Wednesday at the Square, and blues-roots artist Colin Lake is playing on Frenchmen. On this day in 1880, the Louisiana Western Railroad brought the first produce ever delivered by rail to Lake Charles. Now, more hump day happenings.
