Today in NOLA 5.28.17


Sunday, the day of rest…but not if you’re in New Orleans. Today, catch a new contemporary music series, revel in the lovely sounds of Erykah Badu’s musical skills, find your new favorite Fleetwood Mac remix or step back in time with some roots styled tunes. On this day in 1910, Page Mercer Baker, journalist and active participant in in the struggle to free the state from radical rule, as well as one of the founders of the New Orleans Herald, passed away in New Orleans.


Essence Fest Adds Lionel Richie, Mary J. Blige


Erykah Badu, Mary J. Blige and Lionel Richie are just a few of the many artists who have joined Prince on this year’s Essence lineup. The festival announced the new additions today, among a host of other famous acts like Jill Scott and New Orleans native Ledisi.
