Today in New Orleans 4.10.13


Tonight, see some soulful Bay Area rock in Lafayette Square. Head to the Art Klub and get inspired, see some folk on St. Claude, and more. On this day in 1965, the Dixie Cups' "Iko Iko" entered the Billboard Chart. Now, more hump day happenings. 

 

Reel to Real (Art Klub, Michalopoulos Studio, 12pm-10pm)

 

Every Wednesday, stop by and get inspired with soft drinks, cocktails, music, and fellow artists. Tonight at 7pm, enjoy a presentation from local filmmakers, followed by a Q&A session.

Tonight, see some New Orleans jazz/folk/storytelling from Roniger, plus some San Francisco soul from the headliners. Get a beer (or two) after work, and peruse dozens of local foods vendors. Proceeds from tonight’s sales go towards the Young Leadership Council.
