Today in NOLA 5.22.17


Today, Parkway Bakery and Tavern invites you to appear with them on a Food Network show. Beat the Monday blues with a variety of music around town, from NOLA outfits like Antoine Diel Trio at Buffa's and the Porter Trio at Maple Leaf, or the garage rock leanings of Black Lips, performing tonight at One Eyed Jacks. Twenty years ago today, then-Mayor of New Orleans Marc Morial declared it to be Eddie Bo Day. Edwin Joseph Bocage was a blues-funk singer and New Orleans pianist and was later named New Orleans’ music ambassador to Pakistan. Now, learn more about today's happenings. 

 

Food Network Filming (Parkway Bakery and Tavern. 10AM)

Bring your most television ready self and get in on this delicious opportunity at Beyonce's favorite po-boy shop. Though the details are scant, rumor has it that the show Ginormous Food will be filming at Parkway Bakery and Tavern, and customers will be able to get in the fun as the team creates an "EPIC po-boy." 

 

Antoine Diel Trio (Buffa's, 8PM)

Buffa's offers up a cure for the Monday blues with the musical talents of the Antoine Diel Trio at the group's recurring gig in the Back Room. Featuring Diel on vocals, Daniel Schroeder on guitar and Trey Bordreux on bass, it’s sure to be a relaxing night full of great music.

 

Black Lips (One Eyed Jacks, 8PM)

The Atlanta-based Black Lips have received the Lennon seal of approval for their newest album through Vice Record, Satan's Graffiti or God's Art? Sean Lennon produced their eighth studio output, and the group enlisted Lennon's legendary mother Yoko Ono for vocal work. Now almost two decades on, Black Lips are no stranger to the tour circuit, but their current U.S. tour has the group the band with a new five-person lineup. Two new members joined this year, Zumi Rosow on sax and drummer Oakley Munson, alongside Cole Alexander on vocal/rhythm guitar, Jared Swilley on vocals/bass guitar, and Jack Hines on vocals/guitar. Surfbort and DJ Jubilee will perform in support. 

 

The Porter Trio (Maple Leaf Bar, 10PM)

Bassist Porter helped form the Meters with Art Neville in the mid 1960’s, but in recent decades, the legendary funk bassist mostly performs with his Runnin’ Pardners. Porter has regularly performed at the Leaf since 1985, and tonight teams up with some of his Runnin' Pardners Terrence Houston and Michael Lemmler for an improvised show consisting of tunes from Porter's catalogue, blues, soul, and rock 'n roll.
