Today in NOLA 5.18.17


Today, see Tank without her Bangas. So You Think You Can Dance all stars and sibling duo Derek and Julianne Hough bring their dance styles to the Saenger. CAC brings a veterans-themed show in honor of Veterans Appreciation Month. Tip's guarantees a good show, with Reckless Kelly and Blue Water Highway in support. On this day in 1896, Plessy vs. Ferguson established the constitutionality of segregation with “separate but equal” reasoning. Now, more to do this Thursday.

 

Tarriona “Tank” Ball (Dogfish Reading Series, 7PM)

While this is not a full band performance, attendees can definitely expect the unexpected when it comes to Tank. Known as a poet with a music book, the animated Tarriona “Tank” Ball has made a name for herself through her writing and mostly recently her project with her band The Bangas. Her joyful play with words is both memorable and magical. Presented by the Dogfish Reading Series, this is one performance that is not to be missed.

 

Foreign To Myself (Contemporary Arts Center, 7:30PM)

Continuing the celebration of the Contemporary Arts Center 40th anniversary season is the latest work from the fearless experimental theatre company, Goat in The Road Productions. This richly set performance will explore the many ways veterans rnavigate the world and the difficulties of recovery. They explore this all too often occurrence following extensive research into the history and science of trauma, and through historical accounts, personal interviews, immersive sound design and much more.

 

MOVE Live on Tour (The Saenger Theatre, 8PM)

The dancing duo behind the MOVE tour are masters of their chosen craft. Derek and Julianne Hough are a multi-talented sibling duo, both having won the popular dancing competition So You Think You Can Dance multiple times. Derek is sole six-time winner of the competition. His counterpart has two wins under her belt and has transitioned into acting, with starring turns in the Footloose remake, the Nicholas Sparks weepie Safe Haven, and most recently as Sandy in NBC's live version of Grease

 

Reckless Kelly (Tipitinas, 8PM)

With a band name that has its roots in the old ways of the lawless frontier, Reckless Kelly is redefining what country can be. They are Grammy Award winning artists hailing from all over, but based in Austin. They celebrated their 20thAnniversary last year with their release of their back-to-basics album, Sunset Motel. They have earned a very steadfast and loyal following through their combinations of roots, rock, and country.
