Today in NOLA 4.22.17


Happy Earth Day, New Orleans! Day two for both the French Film Festival and the New Orleans Poetry Festival is underway, while the 10th annual Record Store Day spins through the city.


Spell casting: Q & Miss P Ready to Rock Region


Did the Halloween rain ruin your fall does of funk? Fear not, the City is due for an emergency injection of costumes, weirdness, and msuic. Quintron and Miss Pussycat just announced dates for their fall tour and NOLA will host the final show.


Spellbound: Quintron & Miss P Announce Tour, New Projects


Quintron and Miss Pussycat are downtown idols, but they are certainly not idle. The duo just announced a series of spring tour dates as well as the now expected eccentric mix of new projects.


Today in NOLA: 1.18.15


Start the day by honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Continue your Sunday by listening to a tribute to Danny Barker. At sunset, Quintron will play the weather, and then in the evening, Big Freedia will cut it up downtown. On this day in 1962, Southern University, the South’s largest HBCU, closed after the majority of students protested the expulsion of sit-in participants. Now, more to do this Sunday.


Quintron To Play The Weather


After 2014’s chilly Mardi Gras, all eyes in New Orleans are focused on forecasts. Quintron is lending his ears to the mix. The local legend will be staging the NOLA premier of his Weather Warlock project at New Orleans Airlift’s Alterpiece installation at St. Maurice Church (605 Maurice Avenue) on January 18. Alterpiece features televisions rewired to respond to sound and Weather Warlock features a drone synthesizer that responds to temperature, wind, sun, and rain.
