THE

Defender Picks

 

Today in NOLA 4.15.15


It's Tax Day, but after the last return is post-marked, there is plenty happening. The Pelicans’ season comes down to tonight, DJ T-Roy is spinning reggae, Big Sam and Amanda Shaw are playing the Square, and trad-jazz is swinging on Frenchmen. On this day in 1795, the Pointee Coupee Slave Rebellion began their revolt on Julien Poydras’ plantation. Now, more to do this Wednesday. 

 

Wednesday at the Square (Lafayette Square, 5p.m.)

The immensely popular, free outdoor music series continues today in the CBD. Essentially a mini-fest replete with locals’ favorite food vendors, this week’s installment will feature trombone funkster Big Sam and fiddle prodigy Amanda Shaw. Get there early because space fills up fast.

 

DJ T-Roy (Dragon’s Den, 10p.m.)

T-Roy is the man behind the successful Thursday night reggae scene on Frenchmen, but he building his empire now. Expect lots of dancehall, a little dubstep, and some reggae classics. Also, it will be loud. If the house PA does not have enough amps, the mellow mixmaster will bring in his own supplies.

 

Pelicans v. Spurs (Smoothie King Center, 7p.m.)

The Pels season and post-season all comes down to tonight, the final game of the year. A win at home will put the birds into the playoffs. Likewise, an unlikely loss by OKC to the Timberwolves will also put NOLA through. The Spurs are not exactly resting up themselves; a win on their end would clinch the No. 2 seed in the West.\

 

New Orleans Jazz Vipers (Maison, 6p.m.)

The seven piece swingsters get the party started on Frenchmen. Trad jazz and some dancing are on tap as the group cycles through the standards.
