Today in New Orleans: 1.10.14


New Orleans takes off into the weekend with new plays, old battles and, as ever, Camel Toe. On this day in New Orleans history, federal troops ended the Slave Revolt of 1811. The heads of the African Americans killed were displayed on the poles of the Place D'Armes (Jackson Square). Now for more about today:

 

New Play Bacchanal (Marigny Opera House, 2-8 p.m.)

Southern Rep has put on many a good rendition of classics like Streetcar and Pride & Prejudice, but exploring new work is just as important to their mission. The two-day festival of stagings, readings and more begins in the Marigny today. Highlights include a staged reading of Ruby Prize Winner No More Sad Things, and a production of Grande Dames of New Orleans.

 

Camel Toe Lady Steppers Fundraiser (619 Frenchmen, 8 p.m. -2 AM)

The walking krewe that is always a highly anticipated of the Krewe of Muses lineup throws their own party to begin the Carnival season. This year, they move to more spacious digs at Frenchmen Street's Trash Palace, and raise money for the Roots of Music. Lineup inlcudes Morning 40 Federation, Stooges Brass Band, Roots of Music and more. Tickets $15 in advance, $20 at the door.

 

Battle of New Orleans Re-Enactment (Torres Park, Chalmette, 7 p.m.)

The War of 1812 may have already been over by the time it got to Louisiana, but we won't soon forget the blood that was shed in Chalmette. In honor of the anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans, re-enactors are set to stage the night battle of Dec. 23, 1814. Complete with gunfire and marching formation, the history buffs offer all the sensations of a 19th century warzone -- except the death part. Info here.

 

Friday Nights at NOMA (New Orleans Museum of Art, 5-8 p.m.)

The City Park institution's week-ending session has a packed agenda once again. John Richie will screen the NOLA violence documentary, Shell Shocked. Elsewhere, NOMA curator Russell Lord will talk about current exhibition subject Gordon Parks. Down in the Great Hall, bassist Jasen Weaver provides the music.

 

Pelicans-Mavericks (New Orleans Arena, 7 p.m.)

The Pelicans had trouble putting together a complete four quarters during a back-to-back stretch of games earlier this week. On Friday, the Dallas Mavericks pay them a visit. With Dirk Nowitzki and co., the young Pels will once again be challenged to stay focused the full 48.
