Today in NOLA 2.20.17


Celebrate Presidents' Day in NOLA by learning more about one of the most contentious political issues today with the documentary screening DAPL Lies. Or visit The Front's event “Not My President’s Day." Or, check out something entirely different at Comic Strip. On this day in 2013, FEMA discovered some of the oldest Native American archeologic artifacts south of Lake Pontchartrain including pottery shards, animal bones and clay tobacco pipes. Now, more to do this Monday.

 

Brass A Holics (Blue Nile, 10PM)

New Orleans brass meets the go-go sounds of Washington D.C., with tinges of hip hop, funk, rhythm and blues. Guaranteed to get you up and dancing! 

 

Glen David Andrews (d.b.a., 10PM)

“Jesus was born in a manger,” says Tremé-born musician Glen David Andrews. “I was born in a second line.” Andrews’ roots go as deep as anyone’s in his home city, and it’s not for nothing that he’s known as the Tremé Prince. The trombone talent and Jazzfest star brings his signature sound to a weekly Monday gig at d.b.a. tonight. ($5)

 

Not My President’s Day (The Front Gallery, 6PM)

In celebration of creative solidarity and commentary in this political climate, The Front hosts a multi-disciplinary art event with the Bad Hombres and Nasty Women Performance Network. Not My President’s Day will feature protests, improvisational performances, puppetry, and wearable art. In true New Orleans spirit, costumes are encouraged.

 

Detox to Retox (Big Easy ‘Bucha, 6:30PM)

Need a break from all the booze and king cake during this Mardi Gras season? Visit Big Easy ‘Bucha Brewery for growlers of fresh kombucha, plus locally-sourced organic meals from The Green Fork. Kicking off the event is an hour-long yoga flow class from NOLA Tribe Yoga.

 

Stop All Pipeline (Cafe Istanbul, 7PM)

Whistleblower John Bolenbaugh’s hour-long documentary DAPL Lies explores the dangers of oil pipelines to call attention to the much-debated Dakota Access Pipeline as well as over a dozen other pipelines in development in 2017.

 

Blue Velvet & Kuwaisiana & Green Gasoline (The Allways Lounge, 7PM)

The Allways Lounge has a trio of indie rockers lined up to soothe your case of the Mondays. Blue Velvet is a queer garage punk three-piece outfit, while Green Gasoline brings the power rock of decades past. In between these two bands is Kuwaisiana, an Arabic-English synth and brass group led by Kuwait-born singer +Aziz.

 

Comic Strip (Siberia, 9:30PM)

Sign up for comedy at Siberia and then stick around for burlesque performances by some of New Orleans local talent. ($5)
