Today in NOLA: 4.14.16


Check out some films tonight or get your jam band on. Lafayette’s Brass Bed is also getting ready for a new album release, Kirk Joseph in playing in Central City, and some electric blues are coming to Frenchmen. On this day in 1965, Fats Domino’s “Ain’t that a Shame” was released. 

 

Patois Fest (Broad St. Theater)

New Orleans has no shortage of social issues or artistic expressions. Over the course of a few days locals will have the opportunity to witness the convergence of the two when Patois: New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival returns. 12 screenings will feature works that address social and civil rights. Topics covered include LGBTQ rights, racial activism, and street racing on the West Bank. 

 

Brass Bed (Gasa Gasa, 9p.m.)

Jonny Campos, Peter DeHart, Christiaan Mader comprise this Lafayette based indie psychedelia outfit. The group has been slowing rising with their Louisiana influenced breed of power-pop. Their new album “In The Yellow,” is slated for release tomorrow.

 

Umphrey’s McGee (Joy, 9p.m.)

A mixture of jam band improvisation and progressive rock, Umphrey’s McGee’s sound has been evolving since the band formed in 1997. The band is touring for their most recent album, Death by Stereo released in September of 2013.

 

Seth Walker (d.b.a., 10p.m.)

North Carolina bred, Austin based Seth Walker is leading the vanguard of a new generation of blues musicians. The singer-songwriter has an electric sound but classic roots. With sev3n albums under his belt as well as a few appearances on the Billboard charts, there is no doubt that he's the real deal.

 

Ogden After Hours (Ogden Museum, 5:30p.m.)

This week, the Ogden Museum’s evening music series features Sarah Quintana. Plus, an activity table to occupy kids and Miss Linda’s (the Yakamein Lady) Soul Food to cater to your dinnertime cravings. Admission $12.50 Sarah Quintana

 

Chapter Soul (Verret’s Lounge, 9p.m.)

This side project from sousaphonist Kirk Joseph of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and sax master Calvin Johnson aims to take classic tunes and re-arrange them with heavy doses of funk. Kashonda Bailey joins them on keys, and Raymond Weber Jr. is on drums. Check out the debut album later this year.
