Today in NOLA 5.19.17


Today, Bayou Boogaloo kicks off in Mid-City. Go back to the 90’s with the Prytania’s midnight showing of Twin Peaks’ movie ahead of this weekend’s revival, or go experience the “Total Package” at the arena as NKOTB, Boyz II Men, and Paula Abdul all take the stage. Drag classic Priscilla, Queen of the Desert will be screened at NOMA’s Sculpture Garden. On this day in 1949, Elisha Archibald Manning III (better known as Archie) was born. Manning played for the Saints from 1971 to 1982 and sired two sons, Peyton and Eli. More on activities today after the jump.

 

Bayou Boogaloo (Bayou St. John, 5PM)

The annual free gathering of music, food, and art on the banks of the Bayou St. John returns for a 12th year, offering New Orleanians the culmination of all springtime festival activities. Today will feature Tank & the Bangas, Zigaboo Modeliste & His Funk Revue, John the Martyr, Alfred Banks, Caesar Brothers’ Funkbox feat. Big Chief Juan Pardo, and Art Klub’s Silent Jam Experience. 

 

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (NOMA, 5PM)

Tonight, NOMA’s Sculpture Garden will play host to a screening of the Australian adventures of two drag queens and a transgender woman as they journey across the outback in their trusty truck named Priscilla. Starring Guy Pearce, Hugo Weaving, and Terence Stamp. 

 

New Kids On The Block (Smoothie King Center, 7:30PM)

The “right stuff” is here as NKOTB returns to New Orleans for the first time in two years. The Total Package tour is an epic celebration of everything that made the pre-Y2K years great, with 80’s/90’s classics from Donnie Wahlberg and the boys, the strangely Putin-approved Boyz II Men, and pop singer Paula Abdul. No word if MC Skat Kat will make an appearance. 

 

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (Prytania Theatre, 12AM) 

Celebrate the revival of Twin Peaks with a midnight showing of the prequel film, Fire Walk with Me. For the uninformed, the original television series follows FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle Maclachlan), an enthusiast for criminal justice and damn good coffee, in his investigation of the murder of high school student Laura Palmer. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, released a year after the show ended in 1991, explores the last week of the homecoming queen’s life.
