La La Land Comes to Life on Frenchmen Street


A bit of Hollywood magic is coming to the French Quarter next week. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of the almost-Oscar winning film La La Land, d.b.a. on Frenchmen St. will be transformed into the movie's iconic club Seb's for one night only. 

 

In the Damien Chazelle-directed flick, Ryan Gosling plays Seb (short for Sebastian), a struggling jazz musician with dreams of opening his own music club. With all due spoiler alert notice, his dreams come true and Seb's becomes a silver screen reality. On April 25, d.b.a. will be taken over as part of a series of pop-ups in five cities across the country (including Washington D.C., San Francisco, Chicago, and Los Angeles). 

 

The event will start at 7PM, and feature d.b.a.'s traditional lineup of live music plus custom cocktails with La La Land-themed names. According to d.b.a.'s schedule, DinosAurchestra will take the stage as the event starts, with Treme Brass Band taking the stage at 10PM. Old Hollywood-inspired décor will be installed on the historic Frenchmen St. establishment, including the signature neon sign from the film. The event is free and open to the 21+ public. There will also be chances to win copies of La La Land, plus more prizes.
