Comedy Get Down to Come to NOLA for Round Deux


Even in a city as dominated by artists as New Orleans, rarely do you get the opportunity to experience the top talents in an industry under one roof. Four living comedy legends aim to remedy that, as Cedric The Entertainer, Eddie Griffin, D.L. Hughley, and George Lopez are scheduled to stop by NOLA in an epic fall show. 


Hotline Sing: Drake & Kraftwerk Coming to NOLA


It’s easy to forget, but music in New Orleans will continue after Fest Season. Today, hip hop artist Drake and electronica pioneers Kraftwerk both announced September shows in the Crescent City.


Today in NOLA: 3.26.16


Yanni is here! Plus, Cali punk conglomerate Hard Girls is in town. Chris Royal is uptown and Rebirth is downtown. Check out the Raw Oyster Cult at Tip’s or get your dance on at Circle Bar. On this day in 1911, the West End Streetcar took its first ride. Now, more on Saturday happenings.


Paying Tribute


Jazz Fest brings the top tier of the music world to the Crescent City. However, many of the big acts don’t even play at the Fair Grounds. Night shows featuring The Roots and an all-star tribute to The Band’s legendary “The Last Waltz” concert were announced today.


Today In NOLA 3.18.16


Get over your St. Patty’s day hangovers, there is plenty happening tonight! The Glass Menagerie is kicking off Le Petit’s spring. Sao sin and NOFX are in town. Suplecs, Little Freddie King, Gov’t Majik, and Johnny Sketch are all providing some local flavor. On this day in 1687, LaSalle was assassinated by his own men. Now, more to do this Friday. 


NOLAFunk Drops Lineup


Jazz Fest is such large festival that the annual gathering inspires satellite tests around town. Today, the 5th Annual Nolafunk Jazzfest Series rolled out a killer lineup of acts between April 23rd and May 1st. 


Blue Dreams


In the past few years, an influx of reopened venues resulted in a surge of touring bands adding the Crescent City to their itineraries. However, a couple of announcements are heralding some unconventional entertainment coming to town. The Blue Man Group will play the Sanger and “Kim The Happy Medium” will come to the Civic.
