Today's Events: 1.11.12
Today, Wu-Tang Clan swarm the Howlin' Wolf, Neil Hamburger makes awkward jokes at La Nuit Comedy Theater and R. Luke Dubois lectures about his Marigny Parade at Tulane. On this day in Louisiana history, bayou bluesman Slim Harpo was born in Lobdell (1924) and Tuba Fats died (2004). In 1965, black football players boycotted the AFL All-Star Game that was held here. Now, check out the things that will make today memorable:
Wu-Tang Clan, Van Halen Bringing Reunions to N.O.
What will we do when all of this football is over? Why, go back to seeing musicians reunite, and bet on their chances of success, of course. When The Beach Boys revealed they would get back together at JazzFest, we thought there would be more than enough balancing of excitment and consideration of whether it would actually happen. But now Van Halen's reunion with David Lee Roth is closing out their tour here, too. That means not only will the Van Halens and Roth have to reunite after all these years of sordid Behind the Music tension, but they will have to make it through an entire tour. Also stopping by: Wu-Tang Clan.
New Chef in Town: Wu-Tang's Raekwon Plays Maison Tomorrow
Recently, we've seen ?uestlove DJ a Mardi Gras party and Mos Def play with a brass band, but rarely does a national rapper come to New Orleans with the natural appeal that comes with putting a "Chef" in front of your name. Though the origins of his surtitle remain heavily disputed, Raekwon has produced a cooking show, so it could have culinary intentions as well. Either way, he retains serious, if seemingy arhythmic, flow, and that will be the focus when he plays the Maison on Frenchmen St. tomorrow night. In fact, eager Wu-watchers may hope to run into him tonight.
