Today In NOLA 11.24.15
Today in New Orleans, Joe Bonamassa is coming to the Saenger and Rebirth Brass Band will play their normal gig at Maple Leaf Bar. You could also jam with Stanton Moore Trio at Snug Harbor Jazz Trio. For your food needs, head to the weekly Crescent City Farmers Market. On this day in 2008, the Saints scored a franchise record 51 points. On the same day in 1980, head coach Dick Nolan was fired after losing to the Rams. Now more for your Tuesday.
Passing Time at the Maple Leaf
Gentle reader, it is said that Time keeps everything from happening all at once. Apart from that, I find it a nuisance. My free ride to Uptown came well before Rebirth Brass Band was to play. And I was bound to sit upon a barstool and wait. Day bled out to night as the patrons traded faces, and I struggled to remain coherent in a bar that alters by hours as a year through the seasons. Come, my friends, and keep the watch with me at The Maple Leaf Bar.
Today in NOLA: 5.19.15
Get ready for a book launch downtown today. Plus, Rebirth and the Treme Brass Band are playing a couple classic NOLA gigs. On this day in 1949, Elisha Archibald Manning III (better known as Archie) was born. Manning played for the Saints from 1971 to 1982 and sired two sons, Peyton and Eli. More on activities today after the jump.

Today marks the Fifth Anniversary of the Big Oozy disaster. BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, killing 11 people, and then proceeded to leak millions of gallons of crude into the Gulf. The hemorrhaging took almost six months to stop and the effects are still with us today. On a brighter note, click through to find out about all the music in town tonight.
Today in NOLA 4.14.15
The rain shows no sign of stopping this week. The good news is that the music doesn’t either. A pair of experimental music series are bookending the map, uptown at Gasa Gasa and downtown at the Blue Nile. Over at the Leaf, Rebirth playing their regular hometown gig. On this day in 1965, Fats Domino’s “Ain’t that a Shame” was released.
Today in NOLA: 2.24.15
Tonight offers a good mix of classic music and third wave parties. And, there will be a farmers’ market beforehand to get y’all right for making groceries. On this day in 1927, the Lake Charles Little Theater opened its doors for the first time. Now, more to do in NOLA’s 2015 theaters.
Today in NOLA: 2.15.15
Sunday features some of New Orleanians favorite parades. After the beads and the plush, the super-krewes of New Orleans music will be gigging. Rebirth is at the Prytania, Trombone Shorty is at Tips, and Flow Tribe is at Generations Hall. On this day in 1957, influential Civil Rights group the Southern Christian Leadership was founded. Now, more to do this Saturday.
Classic Mardi Gras Music
Time is ticking before New Orleanians must once again pack their favorite Carnival albums and wait a year. If you don't feel like strolling down Bourbon St. in the interim, NoDef has put together a playlist for you with all the classics from Dr. John to Al "Carnival Time" Johnson. Very few cities have music for every season, and none have better music in any season than New Orleans.
