Today in NOLA: 1.24.15


A record raid, a picture show and a freaksheaux are all part of the courses on Saturday's nightlife menu. Sirens play at One Eyed Jacks with Yes Ma'am. The Ogden celebrates the closing of P.3, and Airlift's Space Rites Series (P.3 satellite program) puts on its final performance showcasing an altarpiece of TV screens rigged to interpret sound waves in St. Maurice Church. The constitution of the New Orleans Cotton Exchange was adopted on this day in 1871. Now, back to things to do this Saturday. 


Lift Off


by Ashley Rouen

The ecosphere of the Lower Ninth Ward has been changing ever since Katrina. As the neighborhood revitalizes, art grows from and within the community. One such project inspired by the abandoned St. Maurice Church is coming to a close. Airlift’s final episode in their Space Rites saga blasts off this Saturday (1.24.) The brass section of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra along with Guggenheim Award Winning Composer Yotam Haber will perform in front of Altarpiece, the sound installation of over 30 TVs rigged to interpret sound through light waves projected on the screens.
