Local singer-songwriters Colin Lake, Maggie Koerner, and Kristin Diable are all gigging as well. Click on through for full listings.


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

New Orleans Sounds of 2012 and A Look Ahead to 2013

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.
