Tonight: Maison Gets Locked in Penguin Prison


by Dan Goodman

Tonight at the Maison on Frenchman street, Chris Glover will be performing under his moniker Penguin Prison. Hailing from New York, Glover has hit the music scene over the most recent years through many different avenues. Starting as a modest college musician, Glover has caught the ear of many prominent nu-disco and indie-pop fans and artists alike with his sound that has forged the modern and classic take on pop and disco.


Beats Antique Spins Tipitina's Downtown


by Dan Goodman

Ever wonder what lurks behind those seemingly closed doors with the Tipitina's logo posted outside on N Peters in the Quarters?  If you have not been there before, it is a special, intimite room usually open for special events and tonight is one of those times as Beats Antique make the return to New Orleans to take their electronically infused global roadshow to the stage at Tipitina's Downtown.


Today's Events: 8.23.11
