Today in NOLA: 2.10.16


It’s all over until February 28th next year! Ash Wednesday tends to be subdued in New Orleans, but if you do feel like getting out, the Pelicans are back in town, the Leaf is hosting world music night, and National Book Award Finalist Emily St. John is reading in the Garden District. On this day in 1763, the Treaty of Paris handed the Louisiana colony over to Spain. Now, more to do this Monday.  

 

Pelicans v. Jazz (Smoothie King Center, 7p.m.)

The King Cake Baby costume and the Mardi Gras unis packed away until next year, but the Pelicans are still coming home. After snapping a four game losing streak last night, the Birds are looking to rack up another win before the all star break. However, the challenge will be steep when the woeful 19-32 Pels attempt to end Quin Snyder’s red hot Jazz’s seven game win streak.

 

Station Eleven (Garden District, 6p.m.)

Author Emily St. John Mandel’s post apocalyptic novel was a finalist for both a National Book Award Finalist and a PEN/Faulkner Award. The story follows the The Traveling Symphony a group of survivors in the dystopian aftermath as the y encounter a mysterious “prophet.”

 

World Music Wednesday (Maple Leaf, 8p.m.)

This week Cole Williams takes the stage. Cole, a Brooklyn transplant, made a name for herself in NOLA’s spoken word scene, but her work explores numerous sociological themes through several different mediums. As the name implies, music will be front and center today.
