THE

Defender Picks

 

Today in NOLA: 6.13.14


This evening, soak in artistic discussion at NOMA, then have your pick of brass bands and bounce artists from uptown to downtown. On this day in 1964, Louis Armstrong hit the top of the album chart with Hello, Dolly!. Find those dancing shoes and get ready for more tonight.

 

Friday Nights at NOMA (New Orleans Museum of Art, 5 - 9 p.m.)
NOMA’s weekly arts gathering features local artist Ayo Scott, offering commentary on Rising Up: Hale Woodruff’s Murals for Talladega College. The Woodruff paintings, a landmark piece of African-American muralism, are on view at NOMA through September 14. Musicians Dorian Rush and Harry Mayronne play mellow blues and hot jazz. Free admission, cash bar.

 

The Dance of Reality (Zeitgeist, 7 p.m.)
The first film from avant-garde director Alejandro Jodorowsky in 23 years premieres tonight at the Zeitgest. The Dance of Reality is a surrealist autobiography of Jodorowsky’s childhood in Tocopilla, Chile. Stick around for the 9:30p.m. screening of El Topo, the 1970 Jodorosky film that became the first midnight cult flick. Tickets $8, or see both films for $14.

 

Foundation Free Fridays: Brass Band Blowout (Tipitina’s, 10 p.m.)
This week’s Foundation Free Fridays show features a brass triple bill with the Treme Brass Band, Original Pinettes Brass Band, and New Breed Brass Band. Catch them all at Tipitina’s for free-ninety-nine. Bar sales benefit the Tipitina’s Foundation.

 
BRASSstravaganza (Howlin’ Wolf, 10 p.m.)
Horns also rule at Howlin’ Wolf tonight, with sets from Most Wanted Brass Band, Original Pinettes Brass Band, Free Agents Brass Band, and Legacy Brass Band. Yes, you read that correctly—the Pinettes are booked uptown and downtown tonight. $10 cover.

 

Amateur Bounce Night (Siberia, 10 p.m.)
Get ready to shake off the week with Katey Red, who presents a dozen bounce performers from late until late at Siberia tonight. Check a few of them out in advance, with tracks by Killy Keys, Josephine Donald, and the mesmerizing double entendre of Magnolia Rhome’s “Hunny Bun." Open mic for rappers. $5 cover before 11p.m.; $7 cover after.
