Today in NOLA: 6.11.16


Today in NOLA, the Creole Tomato Fest opens with food and music. In the evening, OEJ hosts (another) Prince tribute, a Star Trek metal band is visiting, Tab Benoit is covering Sting, and Kirk Franklin is bringing some gospel downtown. Plus, check out DJ Soul Sister or Corey Henry. On this day in Louisiana music history, Fats Domino’s “Ain’t That a Shame” made number one on the R&B charts in 1955. Now, for more on this Saturday’s events.

 

Creole Tomato Festival (French Market, 11a.m. - 7p.m.)

The French Market’s Creole Tomato Festival kicks off today, with more than 15 restaurant vendors offering up variations on the local delicacy. Saturday’s music lineup includes Cha Wa, Paul Sanchez, Raw Oyster Cult, and more. A Harvard study found that an antioxidant in tomatoes can help lower risk of stroke. Plus, it’s best absorbed with fat! A true New Orleans superfood. Free admission.

 

Prince Tribute Review (OEJ, 8p.m.)

A classic NOLA performance is being revived to honor the Purple One. If you’ve seen Fleur de Tease before, then you know what to expect: a bevy of burlesque beauties and some special friends. What sets this show apart is the addition of a live band, Michael Patrick Welch’s The White Beach (neé Bitch), who roar through some of Prince’s greatest hits with enough sex and soul to make His Purple Majesty proud.

 

Pavel Chekov (Saturn Bar, 9p.m.)

This hardcore/”warpcore” metal band from Texas is inspired by “Star Trek.” Plus, they actually play good music and do some very interesting things with guitar harmony. Need we say more?

 

The Fuzz (Maple Leaf, 11p.m.)

Tab Benoit is  Benoit is simply one of the bayou’s best bluesmen. Tonight, he teams ups with  Corey Duplechin, Steve Junot and Todd Adams to cover some of their favorite tracks from The Police.

 

Corey Henry (d.b.a., 11p.m.)

Treme trombonist Henry has some pretty impressive roots. His grandfather is drummer Chester Jones, and his uncle, snare drummer Benny Jones, leads the Treme Brass Band. And, it shows. Henry is quickly ascending to the local funk throne. His latest album “Lapeitah” is worth a trip to the merch table.

 

Kirk Franklin (Orpheum, 8p.m.)

Kirk Franklin is one of the top contemporary gospel musicians out there. He leads several choirs, but his solo work is just as inspiring. His albums are pretty impressive also. He’s got seven Grammys to prove it. Tonight, here all of the hits from “Hero” and “The Fight of my Life.”

 

DJ Soul Sister presents HUSTLE! (Hi-Ho Lounge, 11p.m.)

Now, in it’s 11th year, DJ Soul Sister’s celebration of rare grooves has switched locations once, but the music remains the same. Soul Sister has taken her legendary weekly dance party up to the greener pastures of St. Claude. Fans of the HUSTLE will appreciate the additional room on the Hi Ho dance floor as Soul Sister spins old and new school grooves until 3am.
