Today In NOLA 1.19.16


Today in New Orleans, the Pelicans are back in the city to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Dominic Minix Quartet will jam with Honey Savage and Maggie Belle Band at Gasa Gasa, and the Saenger will put on a production of Motown the Musical. As always, Rebirth Brass Band will play at the Maple Leaf. On this day in 1994, Aaron Neville’s album The Grant Tour was certified Platinum. Now, more things to keep you busy.


Today In NOLA 1.09.16


Today in New Orleans, catch the classic Rebirth Brass Band at Tipitina’s, or jam with Oak House and Yard Dogs at Gasa Gasa. Lakefront Arena will host the Bayou Blues Festival, and it’s time for the 11th Annual Carnival “Toe-Down” at Publiq House. On this date in 1967, New Orleans' own NFL franchise took the name "The Saints." Now, more Saturday events.


Today In NOLA 12.22.15


Today in New Orleans, Rebirth Brass Brand will play their weekly show at the Maple Leaf. The holidays are a stressful time; if you’re in need of a cheap laugh, head to Howlin’ Wolf for their free show, Comedy Beast. The Night Janitor will jam at Blue Nile’s Open Ears Music Series, and Albanie Falletta & Friends will play at Chickie Wah Wah. On this date in 1814, the British set off to attack New Orleans. Now, more ways to celebrate the holidays. 


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.


Drinking Culture

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.


Jazz Fest After Hours: 5.02.15


The Fest ends tomorrow. So, make the most of tonight! A couple big acts like Kreutzman’s Voodoo Dead, Primus, and the EDM’s Go Hard Tour are in town. Plus, there is funk, jazz, and afrobeat at nearly every venue in town. Over 20 different acts to check out tonight follow.


Today in NOLA 4.20.15


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.
