Today in New Orleans: 8.5.12
Today, a jazz mass and second-line in Treme highlights the last day of Satchmo Summer Fest, a fashion show struts beside the rooftop pool at W Hotel, and sommeliers go head-to-head. On this day in history, the Battle of Baton Rouge took place during the Civil War in 1862, and piano man Isadore “Tuts” Washington died at age 77 while performing at the 1984 New Orleans World’s Fair. Now back to today:
Jazz Mass and Second-Line (St. Augustine Church, 10:00am) Arrive early (standing room only) to St. Augustine Church at 1210 Gov. Nicholls Street in Treme for a Sunday jazz mass with the Treme Brass Band. After mass at 11:30am, join the “Satchmo Salute” second-line parade with Grand Marshall Boe Monkey Red, Jennifer Jones, Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club, Million Dollar Baby Dolls, Dumaine Street Gang, Sudan Social Aid & Pleasure Club, Undefeated Divas, TBC Brass Band, Baby Boyz Brass Band and more. Sponsored by Rhodes Funeral Home.
Satchmo Summer Fest (Old U.S. Mint, 12:00pm-8:00pm) The last day of the annual celebration of Louis Armstrong’s birthday will feature two stages of live music, including Kermit Ruffins, Leroy Jones, Topsy Chapman, Kid Merv, Jeremy Davenport, Wendell Brunious, New Birth Brass Band, the Original Pinettes Brass Band, a trumpet tribute to Louis Armstrong, and more. The seminars are “Dipper and the Kid” with jazz historian John McCusker at 1:00pm, “New Orleans Style and the Writing of American Jazz History” with Bruce Raeburn and Fred Kasten at 2:00pm, “Recording Satchmo” with David Ostwald and NEA Jazz Master George Avakian at 3:00pm, “Pops in England” with Richard Havers at 4:00pm, and “Cinematic Satch” with Ricky Riccardi at 5:00pm.
Sip. Strut. Swim. (Rooftop pool at W Hotel, 6:00pm-8:00pm) The last of this poolside fashion series hosted by W Hotel and Fashion Week NOLA brings new fashion, models, specialty cocktails, pop-up boutiques, giveaways and music to the rooftop pool at W Hotel overlooking downtown New Orleans. This evening’s event will feature designers Kano Branon, Alician Zenobia and Elise Doran. No entry fee, but space is limited. Getting there early ain’t so bad because starting at 1:00pm on Sundays in the summer, the outdoor rooftop pool is free and open to the public for AdultSwim, where guests 21 years or older can drink cocktails, sit in the shade and eat lunch, or reserve a private cabana with bottle service.
Wine Ride NOLA (various venues, 7:00pm-10:00pm) Five of the top sommeliers in New Orleans will compete for a spot in the Somms Under Fire competition in Austin, TX in October by pairing wines under pressure at various venues throughout New Orleans. The sommeliers are John Mitchell of Stella, Molly Wismeier of R’Evolution, Dan Davis of Commander’s Palace, Sara Kavanaugh of Windsor Court Hotel and Chris Ycaza of Maximo’s Italian Grill. Sommeliers will travel by car to Commander’s Palace, St. James Cheese Company, La Petite Grocery and Boucherie, where they must assign pairings from a selection of wines and food at each venue. A Facilitweeter will follow each sommelier for timekeeping and live tweeting during the event. Admission is $150.
