Today in NOLA: 5.16.15


The Boogaloo is continuing today and the Divine Miss M is at the arena. The International House is celebrating Cuba and burlesque is celebrating one-hit wonders. On this day in 1929, 15 senators signed a pledge to block the impeachment of Governor Huey Long. Now, check out today’s events. 

 

Bayou Boogaloo (Bayou St. John, All Day)

The little fest that could returns this weekend. The Boogaloo boasts some big names but the emphasis is on community, sustainability, and grassroots fun. Tonight’s bill includes the New Orleans Suspects, Kristin Diable, and Woodenhead.

 

Fleur de Tease (One Eyed Jack’s, 9p.m.)

FdT is the marquis show for NOLA burlesque pioneer Trixie Minx’s outfit. The performances are large scale with high production values. Tonight’s gig is themed “One Hit Wonders” and features a collaboration with DJ Matty of Mod Dance Party fame.

 

Bette Midler (Smoothie King Arena, 8p.m.)

The Divine Miss M.

 

Picasso, Chagall, Miro, Dali (Martin Lawrence Gallery, 7p.m.)

One small gallery is the Quarter is opening a very big art show. Come for the modern masters, stay for the white wine.

 

Havana Whites (International House, 7p.m.)

Put down the pastels and put on your Gauyabera. The International House and Loa (221 Camp Street) present their annual Summer Dress transformation, this year entitled, Havana Whites today. The sensibilities will be a little less sartorial and little more social, with an emphasis on our Cuban sister city to the (way) south. According to International House’s Marketing Director Laura Gurievsky, the event showcases “the ritual transformation from formal upholstery to Summer White, [and] we honor the rich influences of the Cuban community and the connections that we share as the nation's most Caribbean city.” The event will cost $35 per person or $60 per couple. The evening features a bunch of culture stemming from both Cuba and New Orleans.
