Today in NOLA: 1.01.15


Happy New Year! For those able to shake off the hangover, the first day of 2015 holds plenty to do. The college football playoff season debuts in NOLA today. The Soul Rebels are playing uptown and the Mississippi Rail Company is playing downtown. There will also be theatre. On New Year's Day in 1815, the Brits arrived ready to fight Andrew Jackson. Now, more to do in 2015.


Today in NOLA: 8.20.14

Film buffs turn out for the CAC’s screening of director Chuck Workman’s documentary What Is Cinema? Plus, six new plays in sixty minutes, a trip to Senegal, and Louisiana’s history in the trans-Atlantic slave trade. See all the details for Wednesday night:

Today in New Orleans 9.4.13


This Wednesday, get a fun and free workout at Dance Hall’s weeklong open house. Glish and Caddywhompus are performing, along with Mississippi Rail Company. On this date in 1766, a catastrophic hurricane landed in Galveston, but sunk ships all the way to Calcasieu Parish. Now, more hump day happenings. 


After the Parades: 2.7.13


Fussy street cleaners and sirens signal the end of Thursday parades, but once the krewes stop rolling the party really gets in gear.  There’s no better way to kick off Mardi Gras madness than with some pre-weekend Carnival crooners and old New Orleans favorites.  


NOLA New Years Eve 12.31.12


Before you start making your new year’s resolutions, drink up and enjoy all of the best music the city has to offer. From Oak to St. Claude, take the party to the streets and dance with Rebirth, Papa Grows Funk, the Soul Rebels, and more. A young Louis Armstrong was arrested on January 1, 1912, for firing a celebratory shot from a pistol into the air at the corner of Perdido and Rampart. Now, it’s time to figure out how you’ll spend the first hours of 2013.


Today in New Orleans 10.24.12


There’s a little something for everyone this hump day, with David Sedaris at Tulane, free music in Lafayette Square, and even a live talk show on St. Claude. On this day in our state’s history, Buddy Roemer III beat three-term Governor Edwin Edwards in the 1987 Gubernatorial Election.
