Today in NOLA 3.19.17


Between Super Sunday and St. Joe's Day, there's lots to do around town during the daytime. But the fun doesn't stop there. Tonight two powerhouse female singers come to town. Following a decade-long legal battle, singer JoJo is back to play from her album "Mad Love," her first LP in ten years. Heart frontwoman Ann Wilson is taking the House of Blues stage, while Joe Krown Trio is doing their thing at Maple Leaf. The Theatre at St. Claude is playing host to an all-female retelling of Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear and Loathing," moving the drug-addled action from Las Vegas to the streets of New Orleans. On this day in 1919, "The Axeman" said he would kill anybody at 12:15 a.m. who wasn't playing jazz music inside their establishment (nobody died that night.) Now more to do this Sunday. 

 

JoJo (Republic NOLA, 7PM)

You might remember JoJo from her early 2000s teen hits like “Too Little Too Late” and “Leave (Get Out).” Following a contentious legal battle with her record label that prevented her from releasing music for a decade, JoJo is back with her "Mad Love" tour. Expect a mix of pop and R&B sounds from the powerhouse singer, who will take the stage at Republic with absolute control. 

 

Ann Wilson (House of Blues, 7PM)

Following the 2016 worldwide tour of Heart’s “Beautiful Broken” album, frontwoman Ann Wilson is taking a break from the sister-rock dynamic on this epic solo trek around the country. Expect to some of Heart’s greatest hits, as well as songs from Wilson’s solo career, iconic covers, and a selection of songs that have empowered the songstress throughout her life. 

 

Fear and Loathing on St. Claude (The Theatre at St. Claude, 8:30PM)

Requiem For A Tease teamed up with Broken Habit Productions for a femme retelling of the adventures of Hunter S. Thompson and Dr. Gonzo. “Fear and Loathing” sees their psychedelic journey moved to the streets of New Orleans. Performers include Trey Lagan, Felix Roxx, Raven, and the Tempestuous Trio Azazel Von Satan, Dahlia Dolorosa, and Melody Thick. Hang around for the pot luck after party, or enjoy the adjoining Allways Lounge Bar’s weekly live swing night. 

  

Joe Krown Trio (Maple Leaf, 10PM)

Krown is on the Hammond B3 organ, with Russell Batiste on drums and Walter “Wolfman” Washington on guitar and vocals. The trio performs this gig weekly at one of Uptown’s most classic venues.
