Today in New Orleans 6.4.13


Make groceries this morning at the Uptown Crescent City Farmers Market. Tonight, free film screening from DJ Soul Sister, Americana Soul at Tip’s, and more. On this date in 1986, the Neville Brothers joined U2, String, Bryan Adams, Peter Gabriel, and Lou Reed on the Conspiracy of Hope Tour. Now, more to do this Tuesday.

 

Adrian Van Young, Michael Jeffrey Lee (Maple Street Book Shop, 6pm)

Head to Maple Street’s Bayou St. John location (3141 Ponce de Leon) and hear readings from the pair’s short story collections--Young’s The Man Who Noticed Everything and Lee’s Something In My Eye. The event is free and open to the public, and wine and cheese will be provided.

 

 Rebirth Brass Band (Maple Leaf, 10pm)

Come out to Oak for not one, but two sets from the double Grammy-winning brass band. Rebirth has performed all over the world, but they love playing for their local fans.

 

Crescent City Farmer's Market (Riverbend Market, 9am-1pm)

Make groceries Uptown today, and support local farmers and growers from all over the state. Dozens of vendors come from all over Louisiana every Tuesday to bring fresh seafood, produce, baked goods, meat, and more to the Riverbend (formerly Uptown Square).

 

Dawes, Shovels & Rope (Tipitina’s, 9pm)

 

Americana soul songwriters from North Hills, California, are headlining tonight, and Doors open at 8pm, and tickets are $20. “Sloppy Tonk” duo of Shovels & Rope, Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent, will open up the performance.

 

Musically Speaking: Wild Combination (Antenna Gallery, 7pm)

 

DJ Soul Sister’s weekly, free film event is bringing cellist, songwriter, and disco producer to Arthur Russell to the screen. Russell passed away in 1992, when he was still very young, and Director Matt Wolf brings his stories to life.
