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:


French Quarter Fest After Hours 4.11.14


Russian Mafia misfits perform gypsy punk on Willow street, while French Quarter Fest performers, Brass-A-Holics and Chubby Carrier, play more funk-filled sets on Frenchmen Street. The House of Blues hosts Bustout Burlesque featuring Dannie Diesel. 


Today in New Orleans 2.22.14


Following today’s parades, ‘tit Rex and Chewbacchus are throwing after parties in the Marigny. Then, Krewes Sparta and Pygmalion continue Uptown with nighttime rolls down St. Charles. Russian mafia band Debahcue is performing at Prytania Bar for the first time. On this day in 1864, James Wells was elected governor of Louisiana. Now, more to do this Saturday. 


Bayou Boogaloo Brings Zero-Trash Bash to Mid-City


When thousands of people gather together for a festival, waste is inevitable.  Trashcans overflow with beer bottles, empty cans glimmer in the grass under a hot sun, and paper plates with half-eaten poboys litter the sidewalks.  One festival, however, aims to combat collateral refuse by bringing more than just music to the table.  This weekend, the MotherShip Foundation’s annual Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo rings in its eighth year with revamped musical acts, better food vendors, more art, and an even more powerful message of sustainability.  


Best of the Fest: FQ Festival Picks 4.12.13


Diehard music lovers braved the weather to kick off the 30th annual French Quarter Festival, but it’s all sunny skies on the second day. There are dozens of acts from near and afar, and NoDef has picked some must-sees to help fest goers narrow down their schedules.    


Dyngus Day NOLA Self-Exiles to Siberia


Now that New Orleanians have Slavic soul food and Russian Mafia music, it’s time for us to jump on the Dyngus Day bandwagon. You don’t have to be Irish to drink green beer on St. Patrick’s Day, and you definitely don’t have to be Polish to shoot some vodka Monday, April 1. One of Eastern Europe’s more debauched traditions is celebrating its second NOLA birthday.


Today in New Orleans 2.14.13


Whether you’re going out with your better half or hanging out with friends, there’s plenty to do for Valentine’s Day in the Crescent City. See live music at venues from Oak Street to St. Claude, plus art after hours. On this day in 1957, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference was founded in New Orleans. Now, more V-Day events. 


Today in New Orleans 2.9.13


It's Endymion Saturday! Head to the Uptown route for Iris and Tuck's, then make your way to Mid City. Following the Krewes, there's live acts performing everything from bounce to Russian Mafia music. See brass, funk, rock, and more all over New Orleans. On this day in 1718, Bienville was appointed Governor of the Louisiana Colony. Now, more to do before, after, and during the parades!


NOLA New Years Eve 12.31.12


Before you start making your new year’s resolutions, drink up and enjoy all of the best music the city has to offer. From Oak to St. Claude, take the party to the streets and dance with Rebirth, Papa Grows Funk, the Soul Rebels, and more. A young Louis Armstrong was arrested on January 1, 1912, for firing a celebratory shot from a pistol into the air at the corner of Perdido and Rampart. Now, it’s time to figure out how you’ll spend the first hours of 2013.


Today in New Orleans 10.26.12


Voodoo is here! After hours fun is going on all over the city, from Anne Rice’s Vampire Ball, to Russian Punk Rock in the Marigny, to a costumed extravaganza in Mid City and a Freaksheaux on St. Claude. On this day in 1911, the “Queen of Gospel,” Mahalia Jackson, was born in New Orleans. Now, more on today’s creepy events.
