Today in New Orleans 4.3.13


Tonight, catch Grammy-winning R&B artist Anthony Hamilton on his NOLA tour stop. Service industry folks can take a dip in the Bywater. On April 3, 1949, Edwin Edwards married his first wife, Elaine Schwartzenburg. Now, more hump day happenings. 

 

Wednesday at the Square: Irvin Mayfield and the Jazz Playhouse Revue feat. Kermit Ruffins (Lafayette Square, 5pm-8pm)

 

The Young Leadership Council presents two of New Orleans’ best trumpeters at tonight’s free show. Sip on an Abita and get a bite from one of the dozens of local vendors, and help support youth initiatives all over the city.

Profit feat. Andrew Block and Friends (Maple Leaf, 10:30pm)

 

If you’re in the Riverbend tonight, stop by Oak Street and enjoy the weekly Wednesday gig from the young guitarist. Block blends soul, funk and R&B to create his own original sound.

 

Anthony Hamilton (House of Blues, 7pm)

 

He’s been singing since he was ten years old, and the North Carolina R&B/Soul artist has gone from the church choir to the Grammy's. See the artist’s NOLA tour stop. The show starts at 8pm, is open to ages 18 and over, and tickets are $35.

 

The Steepwater Band (Howlin’ Wolf Den, 10pm)

 

Enjoy some rock n’ roll tonight on Tchoupitoulas. The four-piece band is in town from the South Side of Chicago, where they recorded their latest studio album, CLAVA.

 

Hump Day/SIN Night (Country Club, 10am-1am)

 

Calling all servers, bartenders, bar backs, kitchen workers, baristas, hotel workers, and delivery drivers—it’s service industry night on Louisa. Bring a check stub or bar card, and get into the pool area half off.
