Today, a musical "pep rally" kicks off the AIDS Walk, a local author presents federal flood-fueled poems, and Love Sessions continues. On this day in Louisiana history, legendary sousaphonist Walter Payton was born in New Orleans (1942), and a three-judge panel rejected Edwin Edwards' appeal of his racketeering conviction (2002). Don't let today beat you. Get ahead of the curb with these:
Today's Events: 5/2/11
May 2, the day that President Johnson offered a $100,000 reward for the capture of Jefferson Davis, in relation to his being behind Lincoln’s assassination, 1865. Eight days later, Jefferson would eventually be captured by Federal/Union troops. On this day in 1949, Arthur Miller received the Pulitzer for his ‘Death of Salesman’; ironically, Joseph McCarthy died eight years later, on this same day, as did Leonardo Da Vinci, in 1519. Lake Charles, LA’s favorite astronaut Domonic L Pugwill Gorie was born (1957), and Diane Crump became the first female jockey to compete in the Kentucky Derby (1970).
Pay It Forward: Musicians Profit from Treme
According to Billboard.com, HBO’s “Treme” watches out for local musicians spotlighted in the series. From playing weekly gigs in bars to entering the homes of millions across the country, David Simon’s NOLA-gram has definitely created awareness for many neighborhood ‘celebs’ (hola Kermit). Beyond recognition, the show’s also helping these musicians get that paper. Between hiring bands to perform (as opposed to actors), synchronization, licensing, and appearance fee pay-outs (last year’s numbers exceeded $1 million), the performers profit.
