Today in NOLA 8.8.17


This Tuesday is a fine day to experience the sounds of the city. Meschiya Lake will play her residency on Frenchmen with the Little Big Horns. Just up the street Treme Brass Band and Johnny Sansone will perform. For the late night crowd, catch Rebirth in their regular gig at Maple Leaf. On this day in 1916, Pelicans shortstop Henry Antone “Cotton” Knaupp became the only player in the Southern Association history to complete an unassisted triple play. Now, more to do today.

Ease your Monday blues with a Slim Harpo tribute show at The Carver. Cafe Istanbul screens a feminist Peruvian film for free, and Glen David Andrews is doing his thing at his weekly gig on Frenchmen. This day in New Orleans history belongs to the drummers, as legendary timekeeper Earl Palmer was inducted into the Rock ’n Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 and longtime Dr. Johns skins man Herman Ernest died in 2011. Now, back to today. 


Today in NOLA: 12.23.14


A Christmasy light show, two recurring music series, one tatted up lady busting out blues vocals, a funky Galactic drummer, three rockers and a legendary father-son duo pack New Orleans’ holiday stockings with care this Tuesday. It’s the eve of the eve of Christmas, and while last minute shoppers tear open store doors to gather the rest of their gifts, many creatures will be stirring up the nightlife before hanging their actual stockings and trimming the tree. Jazz Fest founder Allison Miner passed away on this day in 1995. Now, more on where to fly like a flash tonight within our crescent shore.

Ogden Openings Explore Intersection of Development, Environment


by Brad Rhines

The Ogden Museum of Southern Art brings the bayou to the business district this week, as a slate of new exhibitions celebrate the diverse landscapes of the Gulf Coast.  A whopping nine new shows open on Thursday, all of them focused on some unique aspect of Southern geography, from the waterways to the wilderness.  The openings take place at the Ogden’s weekly After Hours event, and will feature music from bluesman Johnny Sansone.


Today's Events: 1.5.12
