Community Rallies For Slain Domino's Driver Tonight


By Justin Lang

Soon after Michael Price’s murder was reported, a gofundme.com page was created by concerned local James "Jimmy" Delery. It has already accumulated over $35,000 for Price's family.

Airlift Transforms Church for Nels Cline & Rob Cambre



St. Maurice Church in the Lower Ninth Ward has recently undergone a strange transformation. The formerly abandoned space is now home to Taylor Shepherd’s “Altarpiece” in anticipation of an upcoming Space Rites segment featuring a performance with Nels Cline of Wilco and local guitarist Rob Cambre. The altar installation is made of about 30 or so analog televisions donated by Goodwill and rewired to interpret sound. Saturday’s show marks Airlift’s second concert in collaboration with Creative Alliance of New Orleans (CANO), who now manages the property and has linked up with Prospect 3 to expose the charm of the church to the community.
