Today in NOLA: 2.20.16


Get ready for a vinyl overload with the record raid today! Then later, DJ Soul Sister spins her impressive collection at Hi-Ho. If you prefer your music live, Papa Mali, Kirk Joseph, and Kid Merv are jamming on Frenchmen. Or check out something entirely different with the Monster Jam. On this day in 2013, FEMA discovered some of the oldest Native American archeologic artifacts south of Lake Pontchartrain - Pottery sherds, animal bones and pieces of clay tobacco pipes. Now, more ways to seize your Saturday.

June 15, when Assyrians recorded a solar eclipse that was later used to fix the chronology of Mesopotamian history (look out for tonight's eclipse!)
