Today, Uncle Lionel Batiste is honored with a second line and tribute at Sweet Lorraine's. It's also Friday the 13th, the prime day for Creepy Fest. Elsewhere, there's a Bastille Day fireworks celebration, and the Southern Summer Comfort Book Tour reaches New Orleans. On this day in history, legendary traditional jazz clarinetist George Lewis was born in New Orleans (1900), blues guitarist Long John Hunter was born in Ringold, LA (1931), and swamp pop singer Joe Barry was born in Cut Off, LA (1939).
Uncle Lionel Batiste Memorial Second Line/Concert (Starts at Tuba Fats Square, 5:00 p.m.) Treme, Frenchmen Streeet and all of New Orleans pay tribute to local legend Uncle Lionel Batiste the way he would've wanted it: With a giant parade and celebration of the bass drummer's life. The parade starts at Tuba Fats Square in the Treme (N. Robertson and St. Philip), and heads out to N. Rampart, around St. Claude, then making a loop on Frenchmen past Unc's former residence at the Christopher Inn and back out to Sweet Lorraine's. (Parade route map pictured)
The parade will disband at Sweet Lorraine's (1937 St. Claude Ave.) for a huge memorial show featuring Kermit Ruffins, Kid Merv, Deacon John, Stephanie Jordan and many more New Orleans musicians. Suggested donation for the show, which will assist with funeral costs, is $25. Attendees are asked to wear white.
