Today in New Orleans 3.23.13


Whole hogs at City Park, an Easter egg hunt in Algiers, theatre performances from the CAC to Gentilly, live music, and more are happening today in the Big Easy. On this day in 1957, Fats Domino’s “I’m Walkin’” hit number one on the Billboard Chart. Now, more to do this Saturday. 


Box Office: Vagina Monologues at Ashé


Local theatre spans the gamut from Broadway to Burlesque, but it wouldn’t be complete without a production of The Vagina Monologues. Central City’s Ashé Cultural Arts Center is bringing the play to life this weekend. The event even prompted District B Councilmember LaToya Cantrell to leave the dais for the stage.


Today's Events: 4.20.12


Today, the Big Easy Roller Girls gold up for their annual fundraiser, Mainline Brass Band releases a new album and much more. On this day in Louisiana history, President Rutherford B. Hayes ended Reconstruction by pulling out the last troops (1877), and the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 and setting off the largest environmental disaster in American history (2010). Now back to today:


V-Day Reprise Helps Safe Space


by Brad Rhines

Around New Orleans this weekend, lady parts will be getting lots of love, as V-Day NOLA presents two performances of The Vagina Monologues, with proceeds going to Hagar’s House, a safe shelter for women and children.  On Friday, the Howlin’ Wolf hosts the first performance as well as an after party with live music and dancing, and the second show takes place on Sunday at Café Istanbul in the Healing Center.


Hot Humanitarian Action

The Burly Beat



Greetings, lovies.  It seems like every uptight dude in a suit is talking lady bits these days, amiright?  Thankfully, the fringed and feathered females of our fair city are offering ways to support women locally, and the burlesque community is right there to lend a hand (and some leg, buns, and tassels…).
