Today in NOLA: 6.05.16

There’s lots of music (plus Oyster Fest) to catch before the weekend finishes. She Wants Revenge, Gogol Bordello, Chicano Batman, and Ginuwine are all supplementing the normal Sunday acts. On this day in 1953, Louis Armstrong started working on the film "The Glen Miller Story." Now, more Sunday happenings.


Oyster Fest (Woldenburg Park, All Day)

Ask a bar full of locals whether they like there oysters charbroiled, chargrilled, fried, or raw, and you’ll busy for the next two hours hearing opposing views. However, all sides will be represented this weekend when fest season continues on with the annual New Orleans Oyster Festival. Today includes performances by Tank & the Bangas, Colin Lake, Mia Borders, the Mulligan Brothers, and the Honey Island Swamp Band, not to mention the famous shucking contest.


She Wants Revenge (HOB, 9p.m.)

Established Los Angeles DJs Justin Warfield and Adam "Adam 12" Bravin formed this electro-pop duo in 2003. Their throwback sound and industry connections quickly propelled their self-titled debut album to wide play in 2006. They are currently touring in celebration of that release’s anniversary. Fans love their Joy Division inspired sound and the comparisons to Depeche Mode are hard to ignore.


Gogol Bordello (Joy, 8p.m.)

Gogol Bordello is a “punk-gypsy” outfit out of NYC’s Lower East Side. The group’s mix of punk, klezmer, dub, and of course, gypsy music along with their over-the-top stage shows has earned them a devoted cult following. The group is one of the top live bands out there and the show is worth the $34-42 price of admission.


Chicano Batman (OEJ, 8p.m.)

This latino quartet from Los Angeles, CA plays Brazilian tropicalia mixed with psychedelia. Live shows feature the band in tailored suits with ruffled-tuxedo shirts. They are currently playing lots of hits fromt their most recent album, “Cycles of Existential Rhyme.”


Ginuwine (Republic, 9p.m.)

You know Ginuwine from “Pony.” That’s right,“Jump on it, ride it, my pony.” The 90’s R&B sensation is now in the midst of a nostalgic comeback tour. After meeting Missy Elliot, the Swing Mob allumn went on to release hits like “Only When Ur Lonely,” “Differences,” “So Anxious,” and “I’m in Love.”


Meschiya Lake & The Little Big Horns (Chickie Wah Wah, 8p.m.)

You’re not likely to mistake Meschiya Lake for any other jazz singer. With fiery hair, colorful tattoos, and a bold singing voice, this South Dakota native turned New Orleans local wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s known for a contemporary update on vintage jazz, brought to life with unique stage presence and deep appreciation for the past. Accompanied by the Little Big Horns, expect lots of big band standards and tracks from their recent “Bad Kids CLub” album.


Hot 8 Brass Band (Howlin’ Wolf Den, 10p.m.)

Bennie Pete, the Hot 8’s venerable founder and leader, is currently taking a break to tackle serious health problems, and the band has had to put its tour schedule on hold. However, the rest of the guys will keep the spirit going with playlists that include pop cover tunes as well as local classics. Come by for an intimate experience with the brass band locals love.
