Quintron and Miss Pussycat are downtown idols, but they are certainly not idle. The duo just announced a series of spring tour dates as well as the now expected eccentric mix of new projects.


Today in NOLA: 1.18.15


Start the day by honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Continue your Sunday by listening to a tribute to Danny Barker. At sunset, Quintron will play the weather, and then in the evening, Big Freedia will cut it up downtown. On this day in 1962, Southern University, the South’s largest HBCU, closed after the majority of students protested the expulsion of sit-in participants. Now, more to do this Sunday.


Quintron To Play The Weather


After 2014’s chilly Mardi Gras, all eyes in New Orleans are focused on forecasts. Quintron is lending his ears to the mix. The local legend will be staging the NOLA premier of his Weather Warlock project at New Orleans Airlift’s Alterpiece installation at St. Maurice Church (605 Maurice Avenue) on January 18. Alterpiece features televisions rewired to respond to sound and Weather Warlock features a drone synthesizer that responds to temperature, wind, sun, and rain.

Hometown favorites Quintron and Ms. Pussycat are staging their unique show in the Marigny and women are arm wrestling in the Quarter. On this day in 1818, engineer and army officer Paul Hebert was born in Iberville Parish. Now, more to do this Thursday.

Today, the Greek Fest continues, the Big Easy Comedy Festival yields laughter, grand tastings and wine seminars in the CBD, and Quintron and Miss Pussycat get strange at Siberia.

Here’s how to seize the day:


Today's Events: 1.19.12


Today, the Alabama Shakes bring a dose of old fashioned rock 'n soul to the Quarters, Marigny locals hold a benefit for an outta town DJ and the federal flood is discusses along gender lines. On this day in history, the War of 1812 really ended (really). The conflict's final skirmish even beyond the Battle of New Orleans at Chalmette - wrapped up at Ft. St. Phillip in what is now Plaquemines Parish. Don't think today is over before checking these out:
