Today In NOLA 9.22.15


Today in Nola, pair a beer with some yoga at NOLA Brewing or check out the story of a father and son’s love of football in The Last Season at Garden District Book Shop. Blues Traveler is playing at The Civic, and Howlin’ Wolf is hosting their weekly stand-up show, Comedy Beast. On this day in New Orleans history, NOPD set a national record for drunk driving arrests, netting 43 DWIs in eight hours (1972). Now for today's other feats:


Today in NOLA 9.2.15


Happy hump day! Today in New Orleans, get cultured at the 7th annual Culture Collision, or get country will the Hill Country Hounds. Gentleman’s Agreement is on the line-up at the Prytania today, and Hazy Ray is bringing funk-rock to the Howlin’ Wolf. On this day in 1985, Hurricane Elena hit Washington Parish, Louisiana. Now, more ways to make it through your Wednesday. 


Today In NOLA: 8.31.15


Don’t let the Monday blues get you down! Today in Nola, find Gretchen Peters rocking at Chickie Wah Wah or catch the chilling play Flowers in the Attic at the Old Marquer. Phoenix, a dark movie about a concentration camp survivor, is showing at Prytania Theater, and the Southern Food and Beverage Museum is going to be Cooking Up A Storm! On this day in 1922, the New Orleans Rhythm Kings recorded "Tiger Rag." Now, more to do this Monday. 


Lineup Reveal: Howlin' Wolf


The lineup reveals keep coming. On Wednesday, the Howlin' Wolf (907 S. Peters Street) rolled out their fall lineup. The roster is an eclectic mix of local and national music. Bold faced names include DJ Jubilee, Snarky Puppy, Kacey Mausgrave, of Montreal, and Diane Coffee (which features members of Foxygen).


Pack to Pack: Crowded Lineup Slated for Hildegard Benefit


By Lucy Leonard

Musicians have plenty of fears from crooked industry folk to bathrooms on the road, but their worst fear is losing their gear. For the New Orleans band Hildegard, this nightmare came all too true while the band was on tour in San Francisco. On May 28, the group’s van was broken into and over twenty instruments and amps were stolen. The band reported that some of the gear that was stolen was rare, vintage and custom-made. Tonight, The Howlin’ Wolf and Live For Live Nola will host a “Pack The Van” benefit concert to help Hildegard pay for their new gear. 


Today in NOLA: 1.16.15


Was your New Years resolution to get your house in tip top shape? Today, the NOLA Home Show kicks off at the Convention Center. Dance troupe with the Krewe of Muses since 2004, the Camel Toe Lady Steppers put on a fundraiser at Publiq House. The Radiators sail into night two of their reunion at Tip's. Galactic is at One Eyed Jacks, and the Marvel Universe Live takes center stage at the Smoothie King Center. Ray Nagin gave his famous "Chocolate City" Speech on this day in 2006. Now, more details on starting the weekend. 


Krewe of Rolling Elvi Primming for Prompadour


If you’re looking for the perfect place to bust out your blue suede shoes and grease up that ducktail for the weekend, then look no further than the Krewe of Rolling Elvi’s PROMpadour this Saturday. Held in commemoration of the King’s “alleged death” — may he rest in peace, even if it is possibly a retirement in Kalamazoo, Michigan— the 1950’s style party offers plenty of classic tunes and dancing. 


Rebirth Brass Band Grooves into Tour with Music Video


Rebirth Brass Band are extending their reach yet again. This week, the Grammy winners released a new music video. Recorded live at New Orleans' own Howlin' Wolf, the clip is set to "Rebirth Groove," which is off their new album, Move Your Body. Needless to say, the video might inspire some dancing:


Today in NOLA: 6.25.14


Stay dry today! This evening boasts an extended performance at the Shadowbox, classic Dirty South rap at Howlin’ Wolf, and new electronic music at One Eyed Jacks. On this day in 1868, the Confederate states were readmitted to the Union after the Civil War. Details tonight:


Raising the Village

Friday Benefit to Help Lower 9th Ward Community Center in Face of Foreclosure



The Lower 9th Ward Village (1001 Charbonnet St.) is in danger of foreclosure, prompting a call for help to keep the community center open. Lil Wayne's skatepark endeavor fizzled out, leaving the once abandoned warehouse dilapidated and unsafe for use.
