Today in Nola 11.26.2014


In 1903 the City Park Board of Commissioners approved a New York businessmen’s proposal to build an ostrich farm near City Park’s shooting range. This evening, Garden District Book Shop hosts an author with many secrets. The Shiek returns, and local bands Flow Tribe, Gravity A and more bust out to a Beastie Boys tribute of “Licensed to Ill.” 

 

 

 

Frank Warren: The World of Post Secret (Garden District Book Shop, 6p.m.)

PostSecret is a forum that collects secrets on the interwebs. Created by Frank Warren, people mail in post cards they’ve designed themselves revealing their dirty laundry. A selected few are exhibited on the PostSecret website every Sunday. On Nov 22, one digital message revealed, “I’ve had an affair with two married pastors.” Another read, “After you left, I dreamt that you came back…to kill me.” This graphic collection of deepest, darkest memories has the ability to make you laugh or cry, either way, secrets, secrets are fun.  The hardcover is available for $29.99 + Frank Warren's signature. 

 

 

Johnny Sansone ft. John Fohl (Chickie Wah Wah,9p.m.)

Chicago style blues with hints of Cajun color from an accordion’s lungs. Born in Orange, New Jersey, he grew up to his father playing the saxophone, but he was drawn to the harmonica and guitar. John Fohl,who played guitar with Dr. John for 11 years, performs at various local venues, The Maple Leaf, Dos Jefe’s, Publiq House and Snug Harbor. Mid city residents looking to wind up before they wind down after Thanksgiving can head to this show and be in bed before midnight. 

 

Tin Men (d.b.a., 7p.m.)

The Tin Men are sousaphonist Matt Perrine, guitarist and singer Alex McMurray, and Washboard Chaz (you’ll guess what he plays). Together, the three describe themselves as the world’s premiere washboard-sousaphone-guitar trio. It’s not hard to be the best when you’re the only, but trust us—these guys are the real deal. Catch them this and every Wednesday evening at d.b.a. on Frenchmen.

 

Soul Project (Blue Nile, 8p.m.) & Lagniappe Brass Band (Blue Nile, 11p.m.)

This six man band meets all your brass hearted needs. Members of the band have been performing together for more than a decade paving a road for themselves in the New Orleans music scene. They boast two saxophonists (Phil Morin/David Ludman), drums (Colin Davis), keys (Jeremy Habegger), bass (Will Repholz), as well as guitar and lead vocals (Jon Cristian Duque). Keep kickin’ it at Blue Nile with another energy boosting demonstration of the art of the brass band. Lagniappe gives audiences little something extra to take home. 

 

 

Michael O’Hara & the Rock Angels (House of Blues, 9p.m.)

Once upon a time, Michael O’Hara has blazed a music trail through New Orleans since the 1980s. He left New Orleans for the pacific shores of another L.A. and hasn’t played in New Orleans since. He will resurrect the Shiek once more on the eve of Thanksgiving. 

 

 

Sabotage: A New Orleans Tribute to the Beastie Boys (Publiq House, 10p.m.)

Flow Tribe, Gravity A, Jealous Monk and M@ Peoples bow down to the power of the Beastie Boys in a tribute set on the classic album “Licensed to Ill.” Leading the pack of funkasaurus rex will be Jermaine Quiz (Jealous Monk), M@ Peoples (M@ Peoples Collective), and KC O’Rourke (Flow Tribe). They aim to channel the Beastie Boys' “explosive take on hip hop,” says Quiz.
