Today in New Orleans 12.1.13


There’s a pair of second lines in Algiers and Treme, a New Orleans Style Christmas Concert in St. Louis Cathedral, and a costume contest for pets kicking off in the Warehouse District.  On this day in 1769, officials met for the first time in the Cabildo. Now, more ways to kick off Christmas NOLA style. 

 

Deathtrap (The Shadowbox, 4 p.m.)

It’s the third night of the comedy by Ira Levin, a chance to “assassinate yourself with laughter.” Writer Sidney Bruhl is in a career slump when he sees an opportunity in a student’s script. The plot of the thriller/comedy promises both shrieks and laughs for audience members. Tickets are $15.

 

Christmas New Orleans Style (St. Louis Cathedral, 6 p.m.)

This year’s festive concert series in Jackson Square kicks off with local songstresses the New Orleans Nightingales. Christmas New Orleans Style presents this year’s series, with New Orleans greats like Davell Crawford, the Roots of Music, Amanda Shaw, and many more on the lineup for this year.

 

Santa Paws (Ms. River Bridge, 2 p.m.- 5 p.m.)

The LASPCA and Santa Paws are coming together for this first annual event, a canine costume contest through the Warehouse District. A portion of the registration fee (pets must be registered to participate) will be donated to the LASPCA. At 2p.m., meet at Heritage Park for registration and free drinks, followed by a Second Line Pet Parade, complete with a brass band.  The costume contest follows at 4 p.m., and the event ends with a “Christmas in the District” lighting ceremony at 5 p.m.

 

Dumaine Street Gang Second Line, Westbank Steppers (The Treme Center, 1700 Hero St., Noon)

King Leo Lewis and Queen Lisa Robinson take today’s crowds through the East Bank, beginning at the Treme Community Center and making stops at Justine’s, Sweet Lorraine’s, and Seal’s Class Act. Also at noon, the Westbank Steppers are meandering through Algiers, stopping at Ramsey’s Place, Dominique’s Place, and 435 Newton Saint Club before they disband at Manicure Record Shop.
