Today in New Orleans: 3.1.14


The women of Iris and the raucous men and women of Tuck’s are parading this afternoon, with 2700 riders set to ride in Mid-City for Endymion this evening. Galactic and Morning 40 Federation are performing following the parades. On this day in 1932, the Louisiana State Capitol building was completed after 14 months of construction. Now, more to do this Mardi Gras Saturday. 


Today in New Orleans 8.28.13


Tonight, Love Sessions continues, with proceeds to benefit the Louisiana Children's Museum. Culture Collision is bringing 65 local organizations under one roof in the Warehouse District, followed by an after party with Morning 40 Federation. On this day in 1956, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway opened. Now, more hump day happenings. 


Cultures to Collide in Warehouse District


NOLA’s fifth annual Culture Collision will descend upon the Warehouse District for one night only, Wednesday, August 28th, 5:30p.m.-8:00p.m. The event was described as  “one-stop shopping for anything related to New Orleans visual and performing arts,” by Culture Collision organizer Janet Wilson.  


Today in New Orleans: 7.19.13


Friday arrives just in time once again. Once work is all over, it's time to play as Tales of the Cocktail continues, and a pair of on-again, off-again local music combos get their bands back together. For those looking for a little midsummer costuming, Rocky Horror Picture Show rolls at midnight. Here's all the details:


Post-Parade Roundup: Rebirth and Riff Raff


The post-parade party continues tonight with a litany of costume balls, live music, and of course a little bit of dancing.  From a trip to the moon to a band of lackluster superheroes and even to a nineties flash back, this night offers everything.  And as you leave the marching bands for the stage bands, remember there’s more than one party to see tonight.  Whether you head downtown to One Eyed Jacks for a Morning 40 Federation reunion show, uptown to check out the riff raff or to the CBD for some Rebirth, everywhere you look a party is waiting.  Check out the full list of fun below:   


Today's Events: 2.18.12


Today Mardi Gras parades are shifting due to rain, but the show must go on. Even if Endymion doesn't roll, there's plenty happening tonight as, Better Than Ezra plays the House of Blues, Galactic plays Tips, and Spellcaster’s Maritime Ball goes down with Quintron at his Spellcaster Lodge. Most important, NOLA’s Soul Queen Irma Thomas was born on this day in Ponchatoula, LA back in 1941. Back to today:


Today's Events: 10.31.11


Today, Galactic plays Howlin’ Wolf, Quintron and Miss Pussycat play One Eyed Jack's, and a parade from Molly's at the Market marks Halloween. But before such traditions, Nevada became the 36th state (1864), Mount Rushmore wass completed (1941), Bethany Hamilton lost an arm and three liters of blood to a tiger shark (2003); Dan Rather was born (1931), and Harry Houdini died (1926). Oh, and it’s Halloween:


Morning 40 Federation

Music Playlist Series



Although they broke up two years ago, the Morning 40s continue to haunt New Orleans around these busy times. With two dates set for this weekend - including a spot at Voodoo - the vaunted 9th Ward outfit turns in a playlist to give NoDef readers an idea of what influences all that glorious, madcap noise.


After the Fest, Day 2


After a full day of cubin’, it’s back to the drawing board for post-Fest options. There’s more on the list than fit on NoDef’s fingers and toes, but here’s where we’d try to be:
