Today in NOLA: 11.16.16


Today in NOLA, check out a couple staples of the local music scene. Or, forget your worries with some evening erotica. On this day in 1972, two black students at Southern University in Baton Rouge, members of the group Students United, were fatally shot during a confrontation with police officers. Now, more to do this Tuesday.

 

Esoterotica (Allways Lounge, 7 p.m.)
Local writers will be reading and performing original erotic writings on stage. The revolving cast will showcase works in the form of poetry, short stories, humorous monologues and possibly songs! There is NO COVER, and anyone is welcome.

 
Major Bacon (Banks Street Bar and Grill, 10pm)
Come rock out with the meaty trio comprised of Dave Renson on vocals and guitar, Eloise Davis on bass, and Bill Hjortsberg on drums. Bring your appetite for some homemade BLT’s.
 
Walter “Wolfman” Washington & the Roadmasters (d.b.a., 10p.m.)
As a young man in the 1950s and 1960s, Walter “Wolfman” Washington played in the bands of artists like Lee Dorsey and Irma Thomas. Later, he developed his singing style beside Johnny Adams, the legendary New Orleans gospel and blues singer. These days, Washington plays blues, funk, and soul with his band the Roadmasters, including a regular Wednesday night gig at d.b.a.
