Today in New Orleans 12.10.13


John Waters, Prince of Puke and the Pope of Trash is giving audiences at the Civic Theatre his take on the holidays. Christmas cheer continues in Jackson Square, with a free gospel concert from the Melody Clouds. On this day in 1860, then Governor Moore called a special session, calling for Louisiana to secede from the Union. Now, more to do this Tuesday.
