Today in NOLA: 6.15.16


Kentucky’s White Reaper is visiting Freret tonight and HISB is playing a free show on the West Bank. Around the rest of town, some NOLA darlings are playing regualr shows. On this day in 1910, Louisiana created Evangeline Parish, naming it after Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem about a young Acadian woman. More tonight:

 

Wednesdays at the Point (Algiers Point, 5:30p.m.)

The season at the Square is over, but things are heating up on the West Bank. The free concert series at Algiers Point is hitting its stride this week as the Honey Island Swamp Band bring their unique breed of bayoua americana music to the outdoor series. So, hop on the ferry to check out some food, some crafts, and lots of music.

 

White Reaper (Gasa Gasa, 9p.m.)

Louisville’s Tony Esposito, Ryan Hater, Nick Wilkerson, and Sam Wilkerson are White Reaper. The Kentucky garage punk keeps it simple and keeps it rawk with basic chord progressions and amps at 11. The group is touring to push their debut album, “White Reaper Rides Again.”

 

New Breed Brass Band (Blue Nile, 11p.m.)

Ready to get down? Trombone Shorty’s proteges are ready to play some funky takes on New Orleans brass classics.

 

Meschiya Lake & The Little Big Horns (Chickie Wah Wah, 8p.m.)

You’re not likely to mistake Meschiya Lake for any other jazz singer. With fiery hair, colorful tattoos, and a bold singing voice, this South Dakota native turned New Orleans local wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s known for a contemporary update on vintage jazz, brought to life with unique stage presence and deep appreciation for the past. Accompanied by the Little Big Horns, expect lots of big band standards and tracks from their recent “Bad Kids CLub” album.

 

Tin Men (d.b.a., 7p.m.)

The Tin Men are sousaphonist Matt Perrine, guitarist and singer Alex McMurray, and Washboard Chaz (you’ll guess what he plays). Together, the three describe themselves as the world’s premiere washboard-sousaphone-guitar trio. It’s not hard to be the best when you’re the only, but trust us—these guys are the real deal. Catch them this and every Wednesday evening at d.b.a. on Frenchmen.
