Today in New Orleans 8.28.13


Tonight, Love Sessions continues, with proceeds to benefit the Louisiana Children's Museum. Culture Collision is bringing 65 local organizations under one roof in the Warehouse District, followed by an after party with Morning 40 Federation. On this day in 1956, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway opened. Now, more hump day happenings. 

 

Love Sessions (Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse, 8:30p.m.)

The final night of the local jazz bassist’s week long charity event wraps up the nights of love at the Jazz Playhousse. Tickets are $22 and all proceeds go benefit the Louisiana Children’s Museum. 

 

 

Culture Collision w/ Morning 40 Federation, (Generations Hall 5:30p.m.)

In its 5th year, this rare happy-hour for art lovers kicks off the 2013-14 cultural season by joining some 60+ local visual and performing arts nonprofits for a one-night-only event designed to encourage involvement in the New Orleans art scene.  One can peep upcoming performances, receive exclusive ticket promotions and meet fellow art lovers. This one is slated to be the largest CC celebration ever. A ticketed after-party featuring local band Morning 40 Federation will be from 8 p.m. - 10 p.m. Tickets to the after-party are $10 in advance online or $12 at the door.  Parking is available for $10 in the Fulton Street Garage, as well as additional street parking.

 

Groupo Fantasma w/ Los Po-boy-citos, (Tipitina’s 8p.m.)

This Grammy-winning, Austin-born, nine piece musical collective is known for their high-energy, combustible live shows.  Considered by many to be masters of Latin Funk, you are sure to be sweat soaked and with plenty of holes in your dancing shoes.  Advance tickets are $13 or $15 at the door.

 

Treme Brass Band (Candlelight Lounge, 9:30pm)

 

Every week, see some of New Orleans’ most iconic traditional brass artists in their own neighborhood. Snare drummer Benny Jones Sr. is leading the charge, and their shifting lineup often includes Corey Henry on the trombone and Kirk Joseph on the sousaphone.
