Today in NOLA: 12.25.14


The fat man in the red suit jingled and jangled his way through the bayou last night, but the music never stops in New Orleans. Benny Grunch and the Bunch are kicking off an early 12 Yats of Christmas performance in Mid-City. Later, the grownups can see live jazz. On this day in 1913, radio personality and musician “Candy” Candido was born. Now, more to do this Christmas.


Today in New Orleans: 8.8.13


Tonight, enjoy Ogden After Hours with Little Freddie King. All week long, the Mardi Gras Indians are celebrating the rich local tradition. See them honored this morning at City Council, and head to a discussion later this evening at the Joan Mitchell Center. On this day in 1949, Tabasco founder Edward McIlhenny died on Avery Island. Now, more to do this Thursday.


Today in New Orleans 2.17.13


It’s the first Sunday of Lent, which means you can blow off your resolutions for just one day. From the afternoon well into Monday morning, enjoy live music from Frenchmen to Oak. On this day in 1805, New Orleans was incorporated as a city. Now, more to do this Sunday. 


Today in New Orleans 12.02.12


This Sunday, Elephant 6 fans can see Of Montreal, parents can bring their young musicians to Tip’s for a free workshop with Johnny Vidacovich, and fan kids can nerd out all day at Comic Con. Happy Birthday Brit! B. Spears was born in Kentwood, Louisiana on December 2, 1981.


Today's Events: 2.8.12


Today, John Wayne goes to WWII at the Stage Door Canteen and Luther Dickinson, James Singleton, and Johnny Vidocovich play at the Maple Leaf Uptown. But once upon a salute, The Boy Scouts of America were incorporated (1910), D.W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation premiered in LA (1915) and President Harding introduced the first radio in the White House (1922). Here in New Orleans, pioneering blues guitarist and Duke Ellington collaborator Alonzo "Lonnie" Johnson (1889) and sax man Norwood Pony Poindexter (1926) were born. Here's more about today:


Tipitina's at 35


When a group of music fans known as the Fabulous Fo'teen opened Tipitina's at the corner of Napoleon and Tchoupitoulas in 1977, they just wanted to have a place where a reinvigorated Professor Longhair could ply his fingers to the piano. Early patrons may have enjoyed the juice bar, and spotted a strange mic hanging from a hole in the ceiling so WWOZ engineers could record the show upstairs. Neither will be present when supertrio Jon Cleary, James Singleton and Johnny Vidacovich play in celebration of the venue's birthday tonight. But there's been little to smudge the sheen on this New Orleans icon's silver. Show starts at 10 p.m.


NoDef Speakeasy: Public Speakers This Week


The people of New Orleans are not shy about their opinions. Ask about food, or music, or politics, and there will be some tallkin'. But, sometimes, we're also listenin'. In our bookstores, museums, theaters, cinemas, universities, and, of course, our bars, great names lecture, workshop, curate, and debate every day. Welcome to the Speakeasy. The weekly roundup that lets you in on who’s lecturing, speaking, signing, screening, appearing, Q&A-ing, and workshopping all over town, so you can have your culture and eat it too. The week's highlights include a photographer and a sex psychologist.
