Today in NOLA: 5.02.16


Jazz Fest is over. Once locals finish decompressing,there’s lots of music to be had from regular gigs to touring bands as well as a few lingering funk holdovers. On this day in 1964, New Orleans’ girl group The Dixie Cups’ “Chapel of Love” entered the Billboard Charts. Now, more to do in modern day NOLA.


Today in NOLA: 5.04.15


The Fest has passed, but some of the celebration lingers. A mini-parade and a mini-fest are both in store. Locals are returning to their weekly gigs but some out-of-towners are still laying down the funk. On this date in 1970, author T.H. Williams won a Pulitzer Prize for his biography on Huey Long. Now, more to do before it gets too late.
