Today in NOLA: 5.25.16


Before Memorial Day, head out to the Square for some free live music or enjoy some late night tunes at a smaller venue. Forty years ago today, Dr. John performed his hit “Right Place, Wrong Time” on NBC’s The Midnight Special. Now, more to do this Wednesday.


Today in NOLA: 5.11.16


Keep your trench coats on for another night of The Cure today. There is lots of other music to check out, including a free show in Lafayette park, as well as a panel discussion at the Pharmacy Museum. On this day in 1988, a fire destroyed the top room of the Cabildo. Now, more to do in 2016.


Today in NOLA: 4.13.16


Tonight, check out some rock from Georgia, or some country soul from NOLA. Plus, the traditional and avant-garde sounds of NOLA music can be heard. Today would have been the 90th birthday of local R&B pioneer Cosimo Matassa. Now, more to do this Wednesday.  


Today in NOLA: 4.02.16


The rain is gone and Hogs is on! For those feeling nostalgic, The Melvins and TMBG are both making NOLA stops tonight. Riley Walker is Uptown, and New Breed is on Frenchmen. On this day in 1855, a four mile race took place between two horses named Lexington and Lecompte known as the Great Stakes Race, which was held at the Metairie Course, now Metairie Cemetery; Lexintgon won in 7:193/4 for a grand prize of $20,000. Now more to do on Saturday in the Crescent City. 


Hill of Dreams

James Andrews, Partners-N-Crime, New Breed to Headline Trumpet Black Tribute



Music is part of the mourning process when New Orleans loses one of her own. So, it is only fitting that mercurial musician Travis “Trumpet Black” Hill will be remembered through a concert. Hill was scheduled to play a show at the House of Blues on June 5. Instead of canceling the gig, the night will now serve as a tribute to Hill led by his cousin James Andrews.


Second Line Alert: Revolution Downtown


The Revolution will not be televised, but it will provide music for the masses. The much-anticipated Revolution Social Aid and Pleasure Club parade is set to step off at 1 p.m. right in front of Armstrong Park, where the Congo Square New World Rhythms Fest is also taking place.
