Rap and Porn Icon Kool Keith Opens Up During Surprise NOLA Stop


by Michael Patrick Welch

Just over ten days after Mardi Gras 2012, legendary perverted New York rapper Kool Keith played a last minute 2am New Orleans show at the tiny Dragon’s Den on Frenchmen Street, on his way out to a bigger performance at the 5th Annual Arizona Pornstar Ball industry function. Ten years ago, Keith filled the big room at New Orleans’ House of Blues with the likes of Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor in the audience.


Today's Events: 4/25/11


April 25th, the day the thimble was patented (1684) the first time the Guillotine was used (1792), America's introduction to automobile license plates, starting in in New York (1901), the first use of the seeing eye dog (1938) when Pioneer 10 traveled beyond Pluto’s orbit (1983), when Southern California saw 14” of snow (1994), when Oliver Cromwell (1599), Edward R. Murrow (1908), Al Pacino (1940), Jason Lee (recently spotted at Bistro Daisy) (1970) were brought into the world, and when Ginger Rogers (1995) and B. Arthur (2009) left it.
