Today in NOLA: 6.13.16


Steve Gunn is visiting Uptown tonight, but across the city, there is plenty of opportunity to check out NOLA jazz, indie rock, end even some comedy. 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.

 

Steve Gunn (Gasa Gasa, 9p.m.)

Singer-songwriter Steve Gunn is once again touring on his own after making a name for himself as a member of Kurt Vile’s Violators. His brand of folk-rock is reflective and rooted deep in Dylan-esque characters. Over a dozen studio albums speak to Gunn’s staying power.

 

Comic Strip (Siberia, 9p.m.)

Sign up for comedy at Siberia and then stick around for Burlesque performances by some of New Orleans local talent. $5 admission

 

Alexis & the Samurai (Chickie Wah Wah, 8p.m.)

The young Indie Folk/Pop duo just picked up a regular downtown gig. Head to Mid City and see Alexis Marceaux on the guitar/aux percussion/vocals, plus Sam Craft takes on the keyboard, the violin, the guitar, and more. You may know both musicians from other projects such as Sweet Crude, but they are a force unto themselves.

 

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 have switched venues, but the sound (and the free red beans) remain the same.

 

Aurora Nealand & The Royal Roses (Maison, 7p.m.)

After nearly a decade in New Orleans, singer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Aurora Nealand is an established and versatile voice in the city’s musical community. Nealand is also a member of Panorama Jazz Band and Why Are We Building Such A Big Ship, but The Royal Roses are her traditional jazz group. Informed by groups like the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the New Orleans Moonshiners, they bring a fresh take to the trad sound.

 

Jazz Vipers (Spotted Cat, 10p.m.)

The seven piece swingsters keeps the party going on Frenchmen. Trad jazz and some dancing are on tap as the group cycles through the standards.
