Today in NOLA: 6.03.16


The humidity is rising, but so is the volume today. Mystikal, Debauche, and Ike Stubbleflield are all setting their amps to 11 this evening. Plus, check out an art opening, the Stooges, or Colin Lake. On this day in history, men working at the Mint lost their title as federal employees after Louisiana seceded from the Union (1861), and Gov. Henry W. Allen delivered his farewell address at the end of the Civil War (1865). Don't lose today before checking these out:

 

Books/Catalysts (Foundation Gallery, 6p.m.-9p.m.)

Curator Jon Coffelt opens his exhibit of  book art. Artists include Pinky Bass, Doug Boulas, Dana Jo Cooley, Wayne McNeil, Buzz Spector, and Travis Childers. Including a selection from the Private Book Arts Collection. Ed Ruscha, Yoko Ono, Marcel Broodthaers, Joan Lyons, Mare Blocker, Charles Ray, Donald Baechler, Dieter Roth, Davi Det Hompson, David Sandlin, Denise Carbone, Susan E King, Mary Ann Sampson, Lew Thomas, and Miranda Maher.

 

Stooges (Blue Nile, 11 p.m.)

They made their name on the streets, but over the last several years the Stooges Brass Band have also become a force in the clubs with some help from Mannie Fresh. After a few years of name changes (The Most Wanted) the guys are bringing their unique blend of jazz, funk, soul and hip-hop back under their original name.

 

Colin Lake (Chickie Wah Wah, 9p.m.)

The music of local blues-roots singer/songwriter Colin Lake is characterized by twangy guitar, soulful vocals, and catchy beats. Following the success of 2011’s "The Ones I Love," Lake released “One Thing That’s for Sure” last year. Lake is on the way up; catch him while he’s still playing locally.

 

Ike Stubblefield (d.b.a., 10p.m.)

B3 legend Ike Stubblefield’s amazing career includes gigs with everyone from Marvin Gaye to B.B. King. Tonight, he is joined by New Orleans’ own June Yamagishi on guitars and Jermal Watson on drums. The three musicians know each other well; so, expect a high energy, Jazz Fest style jam during the off-season.

 

Debauche (Maple Leaf, 10p.m.)

Debauche are New Orlean’s only Russian mafia band. What does it take to be a Russian mafia band? For starters: quick-paced Slavic tunes, high energy, propensity for vodka, and a sense of humor. After a break, the band is currently at work on a new album to follow up 2011’s Cossacks on Prozac.

 

Mystikal (Tip’s, 10p.m.)

New Orleans native Mystikal is known for his unique style of rapping, with varying speeds and a mix of singing and screaming. The rapper is making a stop in his hometown during his U.S. tour. Despite legal troubles and a switch from No Limit to Cash Money, Mystikal’s sheer talent is propelling him forward.
