Today in NOLA: 6.07.16


The run of great local acts continues tonight with some staples, some experimental jazz, and the return of Caddywhompus (right before their departure for tour). On this date in Louisiana’s Civil War history, Union troops captured Baton Rouge. Now, more ways to get your week going.

 

Caddywhompus (Siberia, 9p.m.)

Caddywhompus is a word defined by adjectives like “uneven,” “crooked” and “out of whack.” In this case it alludes to their mind-bending sounds of noise pop. Sean Hart and Chris Rehm have been playing music since they were in middle school together. They rock amps and tweak pedals to the max executing a loud stage presence. These sophisticated hipsters know indie psychedelia. Check them out tonight before they head on tour.

 

Lauren S. Cardon (Octavia Books, 6p.m.)

Professor Lauren S. Cardon offers a reading and discussion from her work “FASHION AND FICTION: Self-Transformation in Twentieth-Century American Literature.” Tonight’s talk will center around the intertwined concepts of self-transformation and the American Dream.

 

Naked Orchestra (Blue Nile Upstairs, 10p.m.)

Every week, the Open Ears Music Series expands the minds of Frenchmen Street with free jazz and improvised music at the Blue Nile’s Balcony Room. This evening’s performance features Jonathan Freilich large scale project, the Naked Orchestra. Suggested admission $10.

 

Rebirth Brass Band (Maple Leaf, 10p.m.)

Come out to Oak for not one, but two sets from the double Grammy-winning brass band. Led by Derrick Tabb and Tuba Phil, the group has played worldwide, but there is no better place to see them than here, at home.

 

Stanton Moore Trio (Snug Harbor Jazz Trio, 8p.m.)

Tonight, Stanton Moore, the drummer from Galactic and one of the band’s founders, will jam with his side project the Stanton Moore Trio at Snug Harbor. Moore has collaborated with artists including Joss Stone, George Porter Jr., the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Irma Thomas and more. Tonight, he will be joined by David Torkanowsky and James Singleton to play some funk and modern jazz.

 

Gregory Agid (The Maison, 6p.m.)

The clarinetist brings his penchant for making the standards of jazz new again to Frenchmen. Aid’s sound is soulful, but deliberate, more nuanced and academic than many of the in-your-face acts playing the Street. His 2013 CD Mystery Blues garnered plenty of buzz making Agid an up and comer to watch.
