Today in New Orleans 10.28.13


Tonight, a NOLA native brings her unique lo fi sound back to Circle Bar. One Eyed Jacks is celebrating CRAMPS for their special edition Halloween Birthday Party, and Aural Elixir is hosting a CD release and costume party at Cafe Istanbul. On this day in 1768, Joseph Villere and his cadre of Frenchmen overthrew Spanish Governor Ulloa. Now, more ways to usher in the work week. 

 

Tess Brunet + Schooner (Circle Bar, 10:00 p.m.)

The New Orleans/Houma native performed under the band name deadboy and the Elephantmen, as well as Au Ras Au Ras. The Great Nothing marks Brunet’s first album released under her own name. Brunet is on the guitar and the piano, Patrick Hodgkins on the bass, Pat Fee on the drums, and Johnny Campos on the guitar and pedal steel.

 

The Birthday Party Halloween Edition (One Eyed Jacks, 10:00 p.m.)

It’s a special Halloween edition of the Monday night birthday party. In honor of the late Lux Interior’s birthday, DJ’s Bunny and Matty will be playing CRAMPS all night. There is no cover, and those celebrating their birthdays this week drink for free. Everyone can enjoy birthday cake at midnight.
