Today in NOLA 3.20.17


Tonight, explore the poetic beauty of the New Orleans cityscape with Beau Boudreaux. The Blue House hosts their inaugural film in a free screening series, while "Hedwig & the Angry Inch" is back at the Allways Lounge. Indie rock bands Big Thief and Mothers will take the stage at Gasa Gasa. On this day in 1853, Harriet Beecher Stowe published the seminal Uncle Tom's Cabin. Now, more Monday happenings. 

 

Book Signing: Rapunzel's Braid (Garden District Book Shop, 6PM)

Local poet Beau Boudreaux will be at the Garden District Book Shop tonight to discuss and sign his new book, “Rapunzel’s Braid.” The book is his second work of poetry, and many of his pieces explore the beauty of New Orleans. 

 

Film Screening: Close-Up (The Blue House, 7PM)

Tonight marks the inaugural screening of the Blue House Cine Club. A spotlight on Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami kicks off the free bi-weekly film series, with his radical 1990 film “Close-Up.” A fiction-documentary hybrid, the film explores the issues of identity and performance through the lens of a real-life case of a young man arrested for impersonating filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf. 

 

Hedwig & the Angry Inch (The AllWays Lounge & Theatre, 8PM)

The life and times of the genderqueer rock star is back at the Allways, following a successful staging of the musical earlier this year.  ($15)

 

Big Thief / Mothers / Kalvin (Gasa Gasa, 9PM)

Adrianne Lenker (guitar/vocals), Buck Meek (guitar), Max Oleartchik (bass), and James Krivchenia (drums) make up Brooklyn rock group Big Thief. They will play alongside Mothers, the Athens, GA group led by vocalist Kristine Leschper.  Matthew Anderegg, Drew Kirby, and Chris Goggans make up the rest of the group. With support from Kalvin, Gasa Gasa has curated a lineup of the most compelling acts in the independent rock scene nationwide. ($10)
