Today in NOLA: 6.06.16


The start of this week is a perfect night to catch up on music from your favorite local artists. If you prefer a touring act, The Sheepdogs are in town. On this day in 1814, Jean Lafitte’s brother, the pirate and blacksmith Pierre Lafitte, was arrested. Arrgh! More from tonight:

 

The Sheepdogs (Gasa Gasa, 9p.m.)

Lead singer and guitarist Ewan Currie, bass guitarist Ryan Gullen, drummer Sam Corbett, guitarist Jimmy Bowskill, and Shamus Currie, and Ewan Currie on trombone, keyboards, and tambourine are the Sheepdogs. Over the course of five albums, the guys have been playing old fashioned, guitar driven, blues-inspired, rock n’ roll.

 

Glen David Andrews (d.b.a., 10p.m.)

“Jesus was born in a manger,” says Tremé-born musician Glen David Andrews. “I was born in a second line.” Andrews’ roots go as deep as anyone’s in his home city, and it’s not for nothing that he’s known as the Tremé Prince. The trombone talent and Jazzfest star brings his signature sound to a weekly Monday gig at d.b.a. tonight.

 

King James & the Special Men (Sidney’s, 10p.m.)

For half of a decade, King James & the Special Men played at BJ’s and built themselves a reputation as one of the prime working rhythm and blues purveyors around downtown New Orleans. Notable ranging from locals to Jimmy Page were known to sit in on the regular sessions. Now, they are switching venues, but the sound (and the free red beans) remain the same.

 

Brass-A-Holics (Blue Nile, 11p.m.)

Brass-A-Holics are pumping their go-go and brass band pomp at their downtown home. The band was founded by former Soul Rebel Winston Turner, and they released their first album together in late 2013. Read more on I Am a Brass-A-Holic.
