Today in New Orleans: 7.2.12

Today, celebrate Independence day a little early with Marine and Navy brass bands at St. Louis Cathedral, listen to Paul Sanchez talk and sing at Crescent City Books, check out “Hit Girl” weild a gun for a different reason in Hick (R) at Zeitgeist, and nightly music. On this day in history, Lee Allen, late tenor sax legend and session player at Cosimo’s with Dave Bartholomew, was born in Pittsburgh (1926) and funky bass player Nick Daniels III of the Neville Bros. and Dumpstaphunk was born in New Orleans (1955).


New Orleans Marine and Navy Bands (St. Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square, 7:00pm) Start celebrating Independence Day early with the sounds of our service men in uniform. The Crescent City Brass Quartet (Navy) and the Marine Forces Reserve Band will perform two free concerts today and tomorrow at 7:00pm.


Kristin Diable (Three Muses, 7:00pm) After a tour through the South and her song, “Lines on the Road,” appearing on True Blood last night, singer-songwriter Kristin Diable and The City return to Frenchmen Street. Eat, drink at Three Muses as she plays songs off her new record.


Paul Sanchez (Crescent City Books, 7:15pm) Singer-songwriter and cofounder of Cowboy Mouth, Paul Sanchez will read selections from Pieces of Me and sing songs from his musical adaptation of Dan Baum’s Nine Lives.


Hick(R) (Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center, 8:00pm) The film, directed by Derick Martini (Lymelife), is an adaptation of Andrea Protes’ controversial novel about teen sexuality, as a 13-year-old girl sets out from her hard-luck Nebraska town to find a “sugar-daddy” in Las Vegas. Starring Chloe Grace Moretz (“Hit Girl” from Kick-Ass), Blake Lively, and Alec Baldwin. $8 general, $7 students.


Bluegrass Pickin Party (Hi-Ho Lounge, 8:00pm) Gather on St. Claude, tune up the strings, and jam acoustic all night. Cheap red beans and rice will be served, as always, since it is Monday.


Gerald French & the Original Tuxedo Jazz Band (Irving Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse, 8:00pm) Founded in 1910, the Original Tuxedos have the longest history of continuous performances in New Orleans. Gerald French took over the band last year, whose uncle, Bob French, had directed for the last 25 years. Classic New Orleans Jazz.
