Revolution Marches on Treme, 7th Ward (PHOTOS)


Even though Super Sunday was postponed again, there was plenty of Sunday stepping. The Revolution Social Aid and Pleasure Club took to the streets of Treme and the 7th Ward with the TBC Brass Band along to provide the music. Photographer Daniel Paschall was onhand to capture the moments:


Revolution Second Line Hits Treme, 7th Ward Sunday


Revolution is coming to the 6th Ward tomorrow. Even though there's no Super Sunday, the much-anticipated Revolution Social Aid and Pleasure Club parade is set to step off at 1 p.m. from Armstrong Park, where the Congo Square New World Rhythms Fest is also taking place.


Jazz in the Park Second Line Honors Pat Evans


People United for Armstrong Park is honoring one of their founding members in a second line this afternoon. Patricia “Pat” Evans passed away on May 2, at 81 years old. Evans was beloved for her work as a women’s rights activist in the 1970’s and 1980’s, and she led the community through her work with PUfAP, the Historic Faubourg Treme Association, and many other organizations geared towards bettering New Orleans.


Today in New Orleans: 6.10.12


Today is the final day of the Cajun-Zydeco and Creole Tomato Festivals, the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra hits Uptwon, Poetry Slam and Open Mic Night at the Shadowbox Theatre, James Singleton gives Café Istanbul a whirl, and TBC Brass Band throws down at the Blue Nile. On this day in history, Preservation Hall opened its doors to the public for the first time. There was no cover.

Bringin' Da Noise

City Sound Ordinance Proposal Debated in Da Quarters



Amid street musician shutdowns, City Councilmember Kristin Gisleson Palmer has drafted a new sound ordinance to define how street noise will be governed. But around the Quarter, concern lingers about the effects that such an ordinance may have on the city's culture.


Today's Events: 7.24.11


July 24, when Mormon leader Brigham Young arrived in the Great Salt Lake Valley and said, "This is it" (1847), when the rotary-type printing press was pantented (1847), when Machu Picchu was discovered in Peru (1911) and when 91-year-old Hulda Crooks became the oldest woman to climb Japan's highest mountain. Happy birthday to Simon Bolivar (1783), Michael "Kramer" Richards (1949), and Jennifer Lopez (1970). One of the following events might be "it" for you:


Inside the Clean Zone: Photographic Evidence


FAIR GROUNDS - Inside the JazzFest gates, there's a heavily fortified sanctuary that caters to every need. But, flags pulled up and regiments broken, Festers find themselves breaking from the ranks of fun once they are unleashed into the city's clean zone. Suddenly, faces become a little longer, and being in a crowd feels like a hassle. Luckily, the tired and sunbaked Fest goers are pushed along not only by the strong desire to evade street vendors. More music, albeit not guided by well laid cubes, brings everyone home - or at least to the next drink.
