Today in NOLA: 6.16.16


Tonight offers no shortage of activity. The Ogden is opening their much hyped graffiti show and Seth Stainback is in Mid City. For those looking for sports, the US is playing Ecuador in the Copa America quarterfinals. Amd, for everyone else, there are blues, brass, and funk to check out. On this day in 1932, Huey Long’s new state capitol was opened during the inauguration of Governor O.K. Allen. Now, more for your Thursday.

 

Seth Stainback & Roosterfoot (Chickie Wah Wah 9p.m.)

Backed by his band, Roosterback, Seth Stainback represents the next generation of Southern singer-songwriters. He came to music like many of the greats--after living a nomadic life as a truck driver and steel worker. But, his sound was a hit and playing quickkly became his full time job. His most recent album, “Fire & Steel,” was recorded in Lafayette under the supervision of Anders Osborne.

 

USMNT v. Ecuador (8:30p.m., Seattle-FS1, Univision)

Tonight, Jurgen Klinsman’s American squad takes on the slightly favored Ecuador. The Copa America competitiion features the best of the Americas with a joint presence from CONCACAF and CONMEBOL. Today, begins the single-elimination bracket rounds that follow the group stage. The game is televised; so, head to your favorite watering holes for all of the goooooooools.

 

Little Freddie King (d.b.a., 11p.m.)

Little Freddie King is as close to authentic, old-time Delta music as you’ll get without spending six figures on an antique 78. The 74-year-old Mississippi-born country blues guitarist is a literal cousin to Lightnin’ Hopkins. Tonight he plays d.b.a., home to one of the best draft beer selections on Frenchmen. Tickets $10.

 

The Soul Rebels (Le Bon Temps, 11p.m.)

Coming up out of the 6th Ward, the Soul Rebels expanded the boundaries of modern-day brass band music's mix of funk, soul, jazz and hip-hop. Nowadays, they're one of the vanguards of the genre, and are always willing to funk up one of your favorite songs with a cover. Every Thursday, they play at Le Bon Temps Roule on Magazine St., which provides a platform to try out new material.

 

Chapter Soul (Verret’s Lounge, 9p.m.)

This side project from sousaphonist Kirk Joseph of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and sax master Calvin Johnson aims to take classic tunes and re-arrange them with heavy doses of funk. Kashonda Bailey joins them on keys, and Raymond Weber Jr. is on drums. Check out the debut album later this year.

 

Ogden After Hours (Ogden Museum, 5:30p.m.)

This week, the Ogden Museum’s evening music series features DJs Alfa Leone and Quickie Mart. The much ballyhooed Top Mob history of NOLA graffiti exhibit is also opening. Plus, an activity table to occupy kids and Miss Linda’s (the Yakamein Lady) Soul Food to cater to your dinnertime cravings. Admission $12.50 for non-members, members free.
