John Michael Rouchell's TYSSON Talks About the Future
John Michael Rouchell sits on a splatter painted couch in his living room glued to the television playing Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon. He’s on a Kubrick kick getting inspiration for his new gig with three-part local band TYSSON. Best known locally for his project, My Name Is John Michael, the singer-songwriter is stepping into a different world, away from jazz and into the modern age of electronics. Alvin Ford Jr., veteran of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and Max Moran, who jammed bass with Donald Harrison, join Rouchell in taking the fundamentals of New Orleans music they’ve learned from growing up here to create an energetic, alternative pop sound fit for the future.
Today in New Orleans 12.23.13
As New Orleans approaches Christmas, holiday parties continue to pop up at Lee Circle and House of Blues. Local rapper Dee-1 is ending his tour tonight at The Republic. Before there was a midnight mass in Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral was dedicated on this date in 1794. Now, more to do this Monday.
Today in New Orleans 12.21.12
It’s a good thing the Mayans’ prediction fell on a Friday. From Central City to St. Claude, New Orleanians are partying through the Apocalypse with the Hot 8, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, Latin Jazz, and more. On this day in 1932, Louis Armstrong recorded Medley of Armstrong Hits, Parts 1&2, featuring “When You’re Smiling,” and “St. James Infirmary.” Now, more doomsday events.
NOCCA, Bingo! Show Spotlight Holiday Good Will Friday
Around the holidays, a basket of pralines takes the form of good will from person to person. But this is also a time to think of about the youth among us who stand to gain and make merry from small contributions. On Christmas Eve Eve this Friday, two events turn the spotlight on the city with a little more noise than Santas ringing bells. At House of Blues, Home for the Holidays raises money for a NOCCA fund that helps aspiring aritsts, and the New Orleans Bingo Show turns Tip's into the Island of Misfit Toys to give kids a little holiday cheer.
