Today in New Orleans 12.3.13


The multi-talented gender bending Charles Busch is in New Orleans tonight, performing as part of NOCCA’s Broadway series. Beginning at 5 p.m., Pat O’s is celebrating their 80th birthday with a block party. On this day in 1861, Union troops landed on Ship Island. Now, more to do this Tuesday. 

 

Screening of 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' (Prytania Theater, 5:30 p.m.)

Dillard, Xavier, Tulane, and Loyola have come together with Coca Cola to invite the public to a free screening. The film follows the revolutionary South African anti-apartheid activist, who served as president from 1994-1999. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the film begins at 6:30 p.m. 

 

Charles Busch (Café Istanbul, 8 p.m.)

Broadway at NOCCA presents the drag legend, author of the Broadway play The Allergist’s Wife and veteran performer. See Busch transformed into Miriam Passman, the vivacious red haired beauty who will be joined by Varla Jean Merman for a comedic cabaret performance.

 

 Pat O'Brien's Block Party (St. Peter and Bourbon, 5p.m.)

Pat O’s is stopping traffic tonight. It’s the famous bar’s 80 th birthday, and they’re closing off the street at 5 p.m. The Bucktown Allstars go on stage at 7:30 p.m., and Santa Clause may make a special appearance, and there are half price hurricanes all night.

 

Franklin Avenue Baptist Choir (St. Louis Cathedral, 6 p.m.)

The concerts continue tonight in Jackson Square. 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 the season. Tonight’s entertainment features the joyful noise from St. Roch, as the Franklin Ave. Baptist Choir lifts up the exalted space.

 

Netherfriends (Circle Bar, 10 p.m.)

Shawn Rosenblatt is Netherfriends. The Philadelphia native has been songwriting from an early age, leading him to eventually create a rap-free, indie hip-hop album. Jordan Prince opens, and cover is $5.
