Today in New Orleans 5.31.13


Tonight, plays Clybourne Park and Buttboy and Tigger continue, the Zephyrs take on the Round Rock Express, and there’s live music from Toulouse to Freret. On this day in 1964, the original Canal streetcar line ran for the last time. Now, more to do this Friday.

 

Zephyrs Home Game (Zephyr Field, 7pm)

Come watch New Orleans’ Minor League team play against the Round Rock Express Baseball Club.  This week the game is being promoted by The Mary Kay Foundation, so wear pink to raise breast cancer awareness and receive a discounted ticket with proceeds going to cancer research. Make sure to stick around at the end for some post-game fireworks.

 

Clybourne Park (Shadowbox Theatre, 8pm)

Enjoy a performance by Cripple Creek Theatre Company as they open this Pulitzer-prize winning play by Bruce Norris, focusing on the gentrification and social change of one neighborhood during two culturally distinct times.

 

Big History (One Eyed Jacks, 9pm)

Drink and dance in the heart of the Quarter to some of New Orleans’ premier electronic funk and soul music, as Best of the Beat Award nominated Big History takes the stage with Evangelistas. Tickets are $10.

 

Zeale, Quickie Mart, Computa Games, and Kung Fu Chris (Howlin Wolf, 9pm)

The Den at Howlin’ Wolf will host one of Austin TX’s fastest rising indie hip-hop stars along with some of New Orleans’ own favorite DJ’s. Tickets are $7.

 

The Adventures of Buttboy and Tigger (Elm Theatre, 8pm)

Following a successful run in the European Fringe Festival and Australia, Steven Dawson brings his raunchy comedy to New Orleans about two strangers looking for a unique way to connect online. It’s only running for another week, so make sure to catch it while it lasts. Admission is $15.

 

Confabulation of Gentry (Gasa Gasa, 9pm)

The steampunk time travelers play a selection of their Hypno-Jazz jams tonight at one of Uptown’s newest music venue gems, Gasa Gasa.  Show starts at 10 and tickets are $7.
