Today in New Orleans 10.05.13


It's still unclear where fickle Karen will make her final stop, but New Orleans is carrying on with a weekend full of soirees, festivals, gallery openings, and classical music all the same. Happy Birthday to Keith Frazier, co-founder of Rebirth Brass Band, born on this date in 1968. Now, more local music to celebrate this Saturday. 

 

Vampire Soiree, (Marigny Opera House, 8p.m.)

Leading up to next weekend’s The Vampire, the New Orleans Opera Association’s opening show, tonight’s party invites opera buffs and novices alike. The event offers music lovers a chance to hear 90 minutes of spooky highlight from other scary shows. Admission is free, and there is a suggested donation of $15.

 

Art for Art's Sake, (Julia Street, 6p.m.-9p.m.)

Wine sipping and strolling with friends is not limited to White Linen Night. Galleries are opening for the yearly celebration of local artists. From the Ogden Museum, to Jonathan Ferrara, to the Foundation Gallery and more, come check out openings. 

 

Kristin Chenoweth and the LPO, (Mahalia Jackson Theater, 8p.m.)

The Glee star is going from contemporary teen sitcom to sophisticated songstress of the stage. From tv to theater, Chenoweth’s uniquely high-pitched voice and wide range of emotion never fails to disappoint. Tickets are between $50 and $95.

 

Ponderosa Stomp, (Rock N’ Bowl, 8p.m.-3a.m.)

It’s the second of two nights for the fest, and this year welcomes Spencer Wiggins, Boogaloo, Gaunga Davis, Charlie Gracie, Chris Montex, the Standells with special guest Johnny Echols, the Sloths with Ty Wagner, and Eddie Daniels to the stage

 

Gentilly Fest, (Pontchartrain Park, 11a.m.-9p.m.)

So far, festival organizers won’t let a little rain get in the way of live music, family fun, and neighborhood pride. Starting at 10a.m. with a kick off parade at Chef Menteur and Press Drive, the day promises Erica Falls, Wes Raymond and the Soul Factory, Boogie Men, Alia Fleury, Blue Orleans, TUCKA, U4RIA, and Vince Vance and the Valiants.
