Today in NOLA: 1.31.15


After Krewe du Vieux finishes its satirical rant through the French Quarter, locals will diffuse and part ways, inevitably towards the nearest bar or music venue to continue rolling through the night. Tickets to Krewe du Vieux's ball at the Civic Theater may still be available at select locations, and Krewe Delusion's ball is open to the public with an entry fee of $10. A couple dance parties at the Hi Ho Lounge and Saturn Bar are available to any late night groovers searching for a way to keep the good times rolling. On this day in 1988, Grambling graduate Doug Williams was named MVP of the Super Bowl XXII during his time on the Washington Redskins. He was the first black quarterback ever to start in a Super Bowl Championship game. Now, more on what to do locally this Saturday. 


krewedelusion Crowns DJ Soul Sister for 2014


DJ Soul Sister is abandoning her vinyl post to reign over the city. krewedelusion announced this morning that Melissa “DJ Soul Sister” Weber will be this year’s ruler, and their parade will roll through the Marigny and French Quarter on February 15. 


KreweDelusion: 'Saving the Universe Costs Some Billz'


Carnival's fun and all, but don't delude yourself into thinking it's all for free! Even krewes that hop onto other krewes' parades need money to pull off their big show. Tonight, the nascent Krewe du Vieux caboose, KreweDelusion, hosts a fundraiser at One Eyed Jack's. A krewe that wants a new world order has to knock down the current one, so there will be a screening of the "The Big Uneasy" (so much for 'Le Bon Temps Rouler'), an "international" Q&A with the bon vivant and KreweDelusion overlord who directed the film, Harry Shearer, and music by Tom McDermott, Meschiya Lake and DJ Butterfoot. Things kick off at 7 p.m., and you can have it all again fo' free when KreweDelusion marches Feb. 19.


World Go Cup


As the eyes of the World (except for America) turn to South Africa for football's (that's soccer to y'all) NOLA is putting her own spin on it. Krewe Delusion has created a World Go Cup, a sleek black & gold (of course) go-cup that can be purchased at Lost Love Lounge and other select bars for $5, and refilled with tasty $3 drinks specials.
