Today in NOLA 4.29.17


Jazz Fest continues on today with the second day of music, food, and fun at the Fair Grounds. The National Weather Service (NWS) anticipates temps in the mid 80’s throughout the day. Don’t let those grey skies get you down — the NWS predicts a one percent chance of rain. Today, the fest will feature Usher & The Roots, Maroon 5, Jon Batiste, New Breed Brass Band, Delfeayo Marsalis, and dozens more. After hours, Galactic and Roar will perform at Tip’s. Along Frenchmen St., head to Blue Nile to see Stooges or over to Maison to see NOLA all-stars team up for a super show. For folks who have already gotten their concert fix, the Theatre at St. Claude will stage their final performance of a historically-minded musical spoof. Happy Birthday to Master P, local rapper and label founder who makes 47 today. Now, more to do this Saturday.

Iris, Tucks, and Endymion all roll today. Follow the Endymion krewe to the Superdome for their epic after-party — there will be something for everyone there, with performances by the painted-face rockers KISS and rapper FloRida, and put on your boogie shoes for KC & the Sunshine Band. On this day in history, Hattie Caraway (D-Ark) was elected as the first female senator with the help of Louisiana's Huey P. Long. Now, more to do this Saturday. 


Crescent City Cruise


Today, the organizers of the Jam Cruise announced the talent for their 15th annual event. The psychedelic ship might as well be called “NOLA Cruise.” Jam Cruise’s 25 act lineup is dominated by nine New Orleans acts, not to mention several special guests and an homage to Mardi Gras music.
