Today in NOLA: 6.14.16


Tonight, pop sensation Selena Gomez is in town. For those of us above the age of 25, there is also some brass, organ, trad jazz, and funk to check out (plus a book signing). Happy Birthday to keyboardist Gerald Dural, born on June 14, 1957, in Lafayette, La. Dural is the brother of Buckwheat Zydeco. Now, more to do this Tuesday.

 

Selena Gomez (Smoothie King Center, 8p.m.)

You may have been introduced to Gomez through her acting work in “Barney & Friends” and “The Wizards of Waverly Place.” After he childhood acting fame, Gomez branched out into more adult roles on the creeen and launched a career as a pop singer. You may recall her hit, “Come and Get It.”

 

Bill Clinton: New Gilded Age President (Octavia Books, 6p.m.)

Author Patrick J. Maney is heading Uptown to read and sign his critically acclaimed biography of Bill Clinton. Maney’s book paints Bubba as the progenitor of a New Gilded Age when the economy tranitioned from industrial to information and international relations moved beyond the Cold War paradigm.

 

Smoking Time Jazz Club (The Spotted Cat at 10pm.)

This large local band plays trad jazz from the 20's and 30's. The scene is a mix of old-school jazz fans and hipster swing dancers. The band visits Frenchmen every other Tuesday.

 

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.

 

Albinas Prizgintas (Trinity Episcopal Church, 6p.m.)

This master of the classical organ is one of the best in the world and offers a sound not heard in any club. The local composer and performer has not missed a Tuesday night gig since Hurricane Katrina. Prizgintas once referred to the weekly events as “nights full of mystery” that incorporate visual components into the shows as well.
