Today in NOLA: 2.26.15


New Orleans entertainment can't stop, won't stop, even for the cold. Tonight's calendar brings a host of live shows, book parties, a record release and film screening. For the local enthusiast, check out Salon with Brian Boyles on his new book about Superbowl 2013 held in New Orleans. For the adventurer, rendezvous at Parkway for a Mustache Bike Ride. For the music junkie, catch Kristin Diable or Tank and the Bangas. On this day in 1842, some men were arrested at 2a.m. for having too much fun, cited for "unlawful assemblage, fiddling and dancing."  Now, more to do this Thursday. 


Today in New Orleans: 3.20.14


Tonight, the LPO is performing a ‘Leningrad’ Symphony, Ogden is hosting art after hours, and NOLA Fashion Week continues in the Warehouse District. On this day in 1852, Harriet Beecher Stowe published the seminal Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Now, more to do this Thursday. 


THNOC's Concerts in the Courtyard Return


Summer is sinking and NOLA is returning to life which means there is plenty of music and libations to get to after work. The Historic New Orleans Collection (THNOC) does not want be left out of the gathering soiree. Today, the French Quarter institution released the schedule for the sixth annual Concerts in the Courtyard series. The event pairs local music such as the Brass-A-Holics, Kristin Diable, and Hot Club of New Orleans with local liquor.


NoDef Nods: Music

New Orleans Sounds of 2012 and A Look Ahead to 2013



The year in New Orleans music was full of Grammys, viral videos and unfortunate losses. It all adds up to a historically insular music scene on the verge of getting the national recognition it's always deserved. We look back at 2012 and look ahead to 2013:


Frets and the City

Audio Filé: An Interview with Kristin Diable



New Orleans singer-songwriter Kristin Diable talks to Aura Fedora about the release of her new album with her trio The City. Once again, there's two ways to take in this interview: reading and listening.


Kristin Diable Offers Free Stream, Plots Record Release


We're used to seeing Kristin Diable on Frenchmen, and making NoDef playlists. But with her new CD, Kristin Diable and the City coming out, the blues-inflected singer-songwriter is getting ready to head around the country to New York, DC and Atlanta. Before she does, she'll be celebrating the new record at d.b.a. Sunday night at 10 p.m. with some friends, neighbors and hometown fans. And before she even does that, we can all listen to the new record here.


Today's Events: 8.17.11


August 17th, when the world’s first commercial steamboat service began (1807), when the nation’s longest continuously running public farmers market, the Pike Place Market, opened (1907), when Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue was released (1959), when CDs were first released (1982), when Bill Clinton admitted to an  ‘improper physical relationship’ with Monica Lewinsky (1998), and when Michael Phelps became the first person to win eight gold medals in one Olympic Games (2008.) it’s Davy Crockett (1786), Marcus Garvey (1887), Robert De Niro (1943) and Sean Penn’s (1960) birthdays, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s (1935) last day.

Today's Events: 6.9.2011


June 9, when the "Philadelphia Spelling Book"  was the first book copyrighted under constitution (1790), when five hundred mormons left Iowa City and headed west to SLC, Utah (1858), when the first Automat restaurant opened (1902), when Jelly Roll Morton recorded "Jelly-Roll Blues” (1924), when Donald Duck made his cartoon debut (1934, and when Bruce Springsteen signed a record deal with Columbia (1972).

How to celebrate...go to Disney World, watch Back to the Future (and/or What's Eating Gilbert Grape, and/or 'Big Love'), or realize there's too much to choose from right here (as per usual):
