Shows to Go: Pumpkins, Manson, Haynes Announce Dates
Living in New Orleans, it’s easy to forget that bold faced names in live music perform outside of festivals. Still, we do have shows that do not require bringing your own chair. Warren Haynes, the Smashing Pumpkins, and Marilyn Manson are just a few of the artists who announced NOLA dates today.
Four Arrested at Downtown Super Sunday
Downtown Super Sunday (3.29) presented the public with a slice of NOLA culture delivered in a technicolor rainbow of feathers and beads. While the violent days of past did not resurface, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) did arrest four men for firearms violations.
Today in NOLA: 3.30.15
Tonight offers a great opportunity to geek out in a competitive fashion. For those looking for something a bit funkier, George Porter is playing. If you would rather your music on the screen, check out Whiplash. On this day in 1870, the 15th amendment officially gave African-Americans the right to vote. Now, more to do this Monday.
By the closing hours of Hogs, most attendees were contending with a mix of full and fatigue. The event’s growth has been nothing less than mercurial. Still, one detail remained: the titles. Chefs spend months preparing for the cook-off, but winning yields an entire year of bragging rights.
A Smokin' Cause
by Ashley Rouen
The first day of Hogs for the Cause (3.27) started off with a bang. Teams gathered Friday night to prepare for the BBQ feast and charity drive popping off today (3.28.) Drive-By Truckers headlined, as neon lights radiated from private tent parties throughout the night. Today the Soul Rebels close out the fest and the winners of the pork competition will be announced at 7:30p.m. So, get your forks ready for some pork and head out to City Park to support the cause if you're looking for a smoky way to spend your Saturday.
Today in NOLA: 3.28.15
The pork tasting competition begins for the second day of Hogs for the Cause, raising funds for pediatric brain cancer. Also tonight, world folk band hailing from all over the Southeast, Rising Appalachia is at the Civic Theater and will be joined by members from Toubab Krewe (also playing at Hogs) to kick off their show. Stein's Deli puts on Revolt of the Beavers, a Cripple Creek production. Delta Flight 727 from New Orleans to Dallas was hijacked and rerouted to Cuba on this day in 1984. Now, more on Saturday events.
Suspect ID'd in Rapid Fire Revenge
Earlier this week, a man on this West Bank allegedly pulled out a semi-automatic rifle and opened fire. Today, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) ID’d a suspect in the incident.
