Today in NOLA 4.30.17


Stormy weather has affected day three of Jazz Fest, with festivalgoers having to wait until the afternoon to Lorde, Tom Petty & The Heartbreaker, Dr. John and the dozens more acts on the lineup today. Still, for those not up to brave Fair Grounds, there is plenty to do around town. A Lord of the Rings burlesque show will come to Eiffel Society. Blato Zlato performs their swamp Balkan tunes, while Helen Gillet will improv a soundtrack to Belgian avant garde films. Maple Leaf will host a crawfish boil and NOLA all-stars. On this day in 1803, The Louisiana Purchase Treaty was signed. Now, more to do this Sunday.

 

One Tease to Rule Them All (Eiffel Society, 7PM)

The J.R.R. Tolkien inspired burlesque show from the minds at The Society of Sin Burlesque & Variety promise the one strip show to rule them all. Dancing elves, drag queen dwarves, burlesquing balrogs are all promised to be repped at The Eiffel Society’s take on Mordor. 

 

Joe Krown Trio (Maple Leaf Bar, 7PM)

Maple Leaf hosts an epic epic to Jazz Fest, weekend one. The team will kick off a crawfish boil at 7:30PM before the Joe Krown Trio takes the stage at 8PM. Krown is on the Hammond B3 organ, with Russell Batiste on drums and Walter “Wolfman” Washington on guitar and vocals. 

 

Blato Zlato (Bar Redux, 9PM)

New Orleans-based Balkan band Blato Zlato (Bulgarian for “Swamp Gold”) will take the Bar Redux stage to promote their debut album, released earlier this year, for a post-Jazz Fest show. Traditional Balkan and Eastern European music will be performed, with Blato Zlato’s custom dark arrangements, improvisational interludes, three-part vocal harmonies and swelling instrumentals. 

 

What is a Motico?  (Zeitgeist Arts Center, 9PM)

Helen Gillet’s returning Jazz Fest after hours show will see the cellist perform an improvisational soundtrack to a Belgian avant garde film. The ensemble will be rounded out with musicians Mars Williams, Mark Southerland, and Doug Garrison at the Zeitgeist Art Gallery.
