Defender Picks

 

Today in NOLA 11.18.16


Tonight, get retro at Lakefront Arena with Vanilla Ice and friends or check out AD and the Birds at the other arena. If you’re looking for local music, check out some brass on Frenchmen or Colin Lake in the Quarter. On this day in 1811, five men were selected to draft a new Louisiana constitution. Now, more to do this Friday.

 
Colin Lake Band (533 Royal Street, 5:30pm)
Today, Lake headlines the popular Concerts in the Courtyard series. The music of local blues-roots singer/songwriter Colin Lake is characterized by twangy guitar, soulful vocals, and catchy beats. Following the success of 2011’s "The Ones I Love," Lake released “One Thing That’s for Sure” last year. Lake is on the way up; catch him while he’s still playing locally. ($10)
 
Pelicans vs. Portland Trail Blazers (Smoothie King Center, 6pm)
The Birds are struggling in 2016 with a 2-1- record, but Anthony Davis is on fire, posting some up some legendary numbers. Tonight, they try to turn it around against the Blazers, a team hovering only one game above the .500 mark. ($15+)
 
I Love the 90's (Lakefront Arena, 8pm)
The name pretty much says it all as far as this show is concerned. Check out all your favorite artists from a couple decades ago. Acts include Vanilla Ice, Salt n Pepa, Color Me Badd, Tone Loc, Coolio and Rob Base ($25+)

 
Brass-a-Holics (d.b.a., 10pm )
Brass-A-Holics are pumping their fusion of DC go-go and NOLA brass band pomp at their downtown home. The band was founded by former Soul Rebel Winston Turner, and they released their first album together in late 2013. Read more on I Am a Brass-A-Holic.  ($10)
