Today in NOLA 5.17.17


Today, NOMA welcomes all ages crowd and large scale puppets to the Sculpture Garden. Anders Osborne and Tank & the Bangas play an outdoor show. Get your music fix with shows at the Carver and Howlin Wolf. On this day in history, schools in Louisiana and the rest of the country were ordered desegregated with the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education ruling (1954). Here's more of today's happenings.

 

YLC Wednesday at the Square (Lafayette Square, 5PM)

Tonight, one of the most exciting YLC productions of the 12 week series will feature Anders Osborne and Tank & the Bangas. Anders Osborne is an American singer-songwriter and a proud New Orleanian, with a powerful performing style. Tank & the Bangas, the recent NPR Tiny Desk winner, have quickly been catapulted into the national spotlight, most recently performing at Jazz Fest. The event begins at 5PM and all food and drink proceeds go to benefit the YLC’s community projects.

 

The Spider Queen (NOMA Bestoff Sculpture Garden, 7PM)

Taking place in the already whimsical NOMA Bestoff Sculpture Garden, this production will feature a multi talented cast of performers directed by Big Easy Award winner, Jon Greene. The story takes many of it ques from the adventures of our childhoods, featuring masquerade, large-scale puppets and much more. Performances will all take place in one location in the sculpture garden and all begin at 7PM sharp. The first group of shows is May 17th-21st, and the second leg runs the 24th-28th. Purchasing tickets in advance is suggested, as this event will likely sell out.

 

David L. Harris (Carver Club, 8PM)

Embodying the edge of modern jazz as well as the sultriness of the blues, David L. Harris is a musician hailing from Baton Rouge. He has performed at some of the liveliest jazz festivals in the world, including The Newport Jazz Festival, The Montreal Jazz Festival and our own Jazz Fest. This time around, he will be performing at the Historic Carver Theatre and is certain to brighten up any hump day blues. 

 

Russ Wake Up Tour (The Howlin Wolf, 9:30PM)

Russ is an American hip hop recording artist, singer songwriter, and record producer. He has had multiple singles chart on the Billboard Hot 100 and just released his debut album entitled There’s Really A Wolf on May 5th. He is presently touring around the U.S. and will be bringing his unique style to The Howlin’ Wolf. There is also an option for a Meet & Greet with the artist after the performance for those interested.
