'Bayou Maharajah' to Premiere at SXSW (VIDEO)
The eye patch and left-hand technique leave no doubt that James Booker is of New Orleans, but Austin - and the New Orleanians in the Texas capital for the week - will get the first look at Lily Keber's long-gestating documentary on the infamous piano man. Bayou Maharajah: The Tragic Genius of James Booker, which features a lot of Booker archival footage and attempts to put fact to drug-addled myth, will premiere Thursday, March 14, at SXSW.
Today in New Orleans 2.15.13
Today, enjoy art after hours in City Park, bounce on St. Claude, see Flogging Molly at HOB, and more. On this day in 1956, Federal Judge S. Wright ordered the desegregation of New Orleans schools. Now, click through to plan your Friday.
Today's Events: 3.19.12
Today, it's St. Joseph's Day here in New Orleans. Whether you're out to catch an Indian or contributing to an altar, keep the day as it should be kept. SXSW is over deep in the heart of Texas. But New Orleans keeps getting the upstart indie rock blowing through town. On this day in Louisiana history, Cajun music greats Albert Fontenot (1932) and Leo Soileau (1904) were born, as was bluesman Henry Gray (1925) and Swamp rock harp man Joe Johnson (1942). Now see what's in today's lineup:
'Tchoupitoulas' Turning Heads at SXSW
Bands and Bounce artists are showing the hordes at SXSW what it's like to be inside a club, but it was left to film to give a glimpse of New Orleans' after-dark street life. A NOLA-set film that premiered over the weekend in Austin is already picking up some buzz for its unique take on our nocturnal ways through the eyes of a pair of young brothers. Still, the movie's commercial chances were immediately thrown into question as filmmakers Bill and Turner Ross chose to the name the piece after that street that no tourist can pronounce: Tchoupitoulas. The LA Times saw the film. So did Unicorn Booty.
Today's Events: 3.12.12
Today, SXSW is around the corner, and that means indie bands are swinging through New Orleans. A big garage showcase and Girls play in New Orleans tonight. On this day, the boat of Captain H. Shreve's boat was confiscated (1817), Thibodaux native Edward Douglass White was appointed to the Supreme Court (1894) and Edwin Edwards received $400K in a briefcase from the owner of the San Francisco 49ers (1997). Now back to these days:
Bounce Big Shots Stage Siberia SXSW Fundraiser
Like so many across the nation, SXSW organizers have found themselves trying to make it Bounce in front of the mirror, and they want to see the real thing. But before the half-dozen NOLA artists who have been invited to play Austin's annual love-in between music industry types, lovers and artists can make their way to Texas, they've got to be sure they can pay the bills. So, in true NOLA fashion, they're having a benefit.
Alex Chilton, R.I.P.
Alex Chilton passed away last night. The musician rose to fame at age 16 as the lead singer of the BoxTops, garnering fame for hits such as The Letter. Chilton then went on to form Big Star and influence a generation of musicians, also gaining fame for his eccentricity. And, where else would an eccentric musician land, but New Orleans! He talked about our city (and ripped on Memphis) in this great footage. Chilton even inspired a song by the Replacements.
