Jazzy locals come Uptown

Today in NOLA: 10.29.14

Season is beginning which is a mixed bag. Yes, the tourists are flowing, but so is the classic New Orleans music. Rebirth is on Frenchmen for a special appearance and downtown favorite Meschiya Lake is heading uptown. There's also poetry and theatre. Plus, the Tin Men are holding their regular d.b.a. gig.

Today in NOLA: 10.28.14

Halloween is around the corner. So, tonight may be the last evening to catch some local music in a mellow vibe before the season begins in full force. Meschiya Lake will be singing her standards at the Cat. The Nile and Gasa Gasa are both offering more progressive fare this evening. For those with tired feet, there’s also comedy at the Howlin’Wolf.

Tonight, the Saints hope to look good in the national spotlight as Sunday Night Football returns to the Big Easy. NOLA Comedy Hour with the New Movement takes over the Hi Ho (last week, Louis C.K. showed up for an impromptu set) and Hot 8 are in the Den at the Howlin Wolf. Sample, a dance party involving early hip hop grooves, will go down at House of Blues, and punk legend Mike Watt plays with his new group at One Eyed Jacks.

Marigny Fetes for a Cause

NOLA Teacher Arrested for Allegedly Sleeping with Student

With Prospect.3 about to descend upon New Orleans, Thursday is the perfect night to go visit some of the local museums in the area.

The Delta Saints will bring their “Bourbon-fueld bayou rock” to Publiq House, and Julian Benasis will bring electro- house grooves to Republic. On this day in Louisiana history, Wilson “Boozoo” Chavis was born in Lake Charles (1930).

Order in the Court: Criminal Court Judicial Candidates on the Issues

On Election Day, New Orleanians will be picking judges as well as legislators. While the Senate race has generated a national media frenzy, the judge positions have slipped under the radar making the choice a bit more difficult. Fortunately, NoDef’s friends at WYES-TV are making the choice a little easier. As part of their ongoing initiative RESHAPING A GREATER NEW ORLEANS: CRIMINAL JUSTICE, in partnership with ProjectJusticeNOLA, hey invited Criminal District Court Judge candidates to answer the following questions about court governance, efficiency, and policy.
