Today in NOLA 3.14.17


Today, come on down for The Saenger's live staging of The Price is Right. Tubby & Coo's is hosting a Pi Day party, while local singer-songwriter Mia Borders brings her funky-cool stylings to Chickie Wah Wah. Ryan Adams takes the Orpheum stage to share his latest heartbreaks off of his newest album Prisoner. On this day in 1870, Algiers was annexed as part of New Orleans. Check out more this Tuesday. 

 

Pi Day (Tubby & Coo's Mid-City Book Shop, 5PM)

Math enthusiasts unite! Tubby & Coo’s is hosting a Pi Day celebration in honor of 3.14, the date honoring the mathematical constant number relating to the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. There will be trivia games, artwork, and of course lots and lots of pie. 

  

The Price is Right Live (The Saenger Theatre, 7:30PM)

People of New Orleans, come on down! The Saenger is hosting a traveling stage show version of T.V.’s longest running game show, The Price is Right. Contestants can compete for prizes by playing classic contests like the Big Wheel, Plinko, and the Showcase for chances to win cash, home appliances, even — say it with us now — a brand new car. 

 

Ryan Adams (Orpheum Theater, 8PM)

Indie rock troubadour. Whiskeytown frontman. Former Mr. Mandy Moore. Ryan Adams has worn lots of hats throughout his career. The Taylor Swift enthusiast (he recorded a song-for-song cover album of the pop star’s 1989 album) is promoting his latest effort, a country-tinged breakup album entitled Prisoner, tonight at the Orpheum.

 

Mia Borders (Chickie Wah Wah, 9PM)

Local singer-songwriter Mia Borders is celebrated for her soulful voice and deep funky melodies. Borders has been prolific in her music career for over a decade, releasing new tunes every year since 2006. Her newest LP, 2016’s Fever Dreams is a melting pot of influences mirroring her hometown of New Orleans.
