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.

Today in NOLA 5.26.12


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. On this day in New Orleans history, the Civil War came to LA when the U.S. Navy began the Mississippi River blockade (1861), the Army of Trans-Mississippi surrendered in New Orleans (1865), and former Governor Edwin Edwards married his 29-year-old girlfriend Candy Picou (1994). Here’s how to seize the day:


At the Square


By Laura Cayouette

Dr. John will be playing this week's Harvest the Music benefitting Second Harvest, Wednesday the 6th at 5pm at Lafayette Square. Last week's concert featured Rebirth Brass Band. The huge crowd was packed Jazz Fest-style into the small urban park on one of the most wonderful weather days of the year. 


Wednesday at the Square


By Laura Cayouette

The Youth Leadership Council Wednesday at the Square, presented by our own Super Bowl Champions, the New Orleans Saints, was once again a deservedly popular affair this May 5th. The evening opened with a fun, family festive attitude.
