Today in NOLA 8.29.17


Today, we remember Hurricane Katrina. Twelve years ago, Hurricane Katrina came whirling out of the Gulf. We are painfully familiar with the levee breaks, flooding, death, and dislocation that followed. Across the city, we pause to remember, reopen, and rejoice at some of the rebuilding. We are also conscious of our safety during the current Hurricane Harvey, with rain that has led many New Orleanians to stay close to home. There are still a few events around town that the more adventurous resident can attend. Rebirth Brass Band will play their recurring gig at the Maple Leaf, or venture over to Frenchmen to see locals-gone-big Water Seed take the stage at Blue Nile. Pitchfork Radio kicks off their NOLA invasion with some star-studded radio broadcasts. Gasa Gasa will project back-to-back screenings of Kill Bill. Read on for details below.

This Tuesday is a fine day to experience the sounds of the city. Meschiya Lake will play her residency on Frenchmen with the Little Big Horns. Just up the street Treme Brass Band and Johnny Sansone will perform. For the late night crowd, catch Rebirth in their regular gig at Maple Leaf. On this day in 1916, Pelicans shortstop Henry Antone “Cotton” Knaupp became the only player in the Southern Association history to complete an unassisted triple play. Now, more to do today.

It's a glorious day as Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie come to town for a show at the arena. The Maple Leaf is hosting an epic concert to benefit a team member in need, while the Hi-Ho hosts its legendary comedy open mic. Or, develop your meditation practice at Tibetan House's one day retreat. On this day in 1974, Aunt Sally's Praline Shop, located at 314 Royal Street, was destroyed after catching fire in what many contend was a conspiracy over the property ownership. Now, more details for Sunday's events.

It's a fine day for music in New Orleans this Tuesday. Rebirth Brass Band will play their recurring gig at the Maple Leaf, while electro-pop star Nite Jewel performs Gasa Gasa. Over on Frenchmen, check out Treme Brass Band at d.b.a. and then mosey up the street to Blue Nile to see locals-gone-big Water Seed. On this day in 1968, Jimi Hendrix performed at City Park. The concert cost $4 advanced sale or $5 at the gate. Though you can't see the Voodoo Child himself, read on for more musical happenings in city.

Today, Parkway Bakery and Tavern invites you to appear with them on a Food Network show.

Twenty years ago today, then-Mayor of New Orleans Marc Morial declared it to be Eddie Bo Day. Edwin Joseph Bocage was a blues-funk singer and New Orleans pianist and was later named New Orleans’ music ambassador to Pakistan. Now, learn more about today's happenings.

Tonight, Opera on Tap is in City Park, and starlight racing kicks off this evening at the Fair Grounds.
