Today in New Orleans: 10.21.12
Today, the Saints return to cure us from the Bye Week Blues, the Marigny parties on with a fete of its own and we wave goodbye to Treme's 200th birthday celebration and the Liliy's Revenge. On this day in Louisiana history, Blind Melon lead singer Shannon Hoon was found dead on St. Charles Ave. (1995) and Gov. Edwin Edwards began serving his 10-year prison sentence (2002). Now for today's comings and goings:
Saints at Bucaneers (Noon, Raymond James Stadium) The Saints return after a bye week of blase and bounties. They face division rivals the Bucs in hopes of continuing their winning ways.
Treme Bicentennial (Treme, All Day) The big celebration of the 200th anniversary of Treme wraps up today, but not before a gigantic second line through the 6th Ward. Close out in New Orleans style as all of the Social Aide and Pleasure Clubs in town march as one United front.
Men & Ladies of Class Second Line (540 S. Broad, 1:00 PM) Second lining in Central City returns like clockwork. The Men and Ladies of Class take it to the streets of Uptown like no other. Hot 8 Brass Band provides the music as the parade rolls down to Second and Dryades, then loops back to its starting point. Route info here.
Fete Marigny (Washington Square Park, All Day) After going to parties in the Bywater and French Quarter for years, The Marigny gets its own fest! The Washington Square Park gathering features music and plenty of activities for the kids!
The Lily's Revenge (Den of Muses, 6:00 PM) This local theatre collaboration is as big as they come: 5 acts. 5 hours. Dance, Japanese theatre, verse, silent film and a whole lot more. At the center of it all is a flower trying to become human. Tonight is closing night of this production.
Paul Sanchez (Trinity Episcopal Church, 5:00 PM) The NOLA singer/songwriter graces one of the standard barers of NOLA music. The sanctuary at Trinity Episcopal Church is home to some of the best sounds around, and tonight is no different.
Band of Horses (House of Blues, 8:00 PM) They have beards and play a variety of American rock that's appealing. They were supposed to be on a whistle-stop train tour, but the whole thing got canceled. But you can check out Band of Horses tonight in the Quarter, anyway.
Duck Dynasty (Maple St. Book Shop, 2:00 PM) From one of the many Louisiana reality TV shows, Willie and Korie Robertson of the A&E show appear Uptown to prove that they can roll in the big city..sometimes.
