Today in NOLA 9.12.17


Today, support our neighbors in Houston recover from Hurricane Harvey at a benefit concert at The Willow. The LGBT Community Center hosts a cocktail party. Gasa Gasa screens a film about LCD Soundsystem, while Burgundy Picture House kicks off their horror film series. On this day in 1839, Captain Salvatore Pizzati, an immigrant and leading importer of tropical fruit to New Orleans, was born in Palermo, Sicily. During his lifetime, he was one of the principal benefactors of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart and donated the iconic gate to City Park. Now, learn more about tonight's festivities. 


The Art of Activism

Picolla Tushy's 'Resist This' Series Blends Politics with Performance



Resist This, an ongoing activism-infused affair presented by Picolla Tushy with her troupe The Bluestockings, held its June edition on Saturday (6.10) night at Sidney's Saloon. The intimate night weaved burlesque, comedy, music, poetry, and vaudevillian varieties to raise funds and awareness for the LGBT Community Center, during New Orleans' Pride weekend.

Jump into the post-holiday work week with some sound therapy, expand your understanding of gender, or check out a performance at the Arts Estuary. Champions Square will welcome some of the hitmakers of the early 2000s. On this day in 1806, Andrew Jackson dueled Charles Dickenson with a pistol, defending his wife Rachel’s good name, which Dickenson had slandered in public. In the end, Jackson outsmarted his adversary.


Sugar In Your Tank: Stories of Queer Resistance


"The first time I heard the phrase 'sugar in the tank’ was by my auntie in reference to my then-closeted gay male high school friend as she admired him strutting off into the world as he always did,” said Indee Mitchell, a performance artist and co-director of Last Call, a queer artist/activist collective. Together with Bring Your Own Stories, Last Call will host an event tonight named for the phrase as part of the Queer Histories/Queer Futures series partnership with the LGBT Community Center of New Orleans. 


Today in NOLA 5.11.17


Tonight, the Ogden stays open late for their regular After Hours series. Listen to stories of queer resistance at Sugar In Your Tank. Ashé Cac screens a documentary on writer James Baldwin, and The New Movement’s musical and improv teams perform along to Mary Poppins. On this day in 1988, a fire destroyed the top room of the Cabildo. Now, more to do this Thursday.
