Today in NOLA: 6.17.16


A couple of gals from Nashville are bringing their own take on country to the Quarter tonight while Seth Stainback wraps up his run in Mid City. Plus, Kermit, Tab, Christian Scott, and the New Orleans Suspects are all taking the stage. On this day in 1868, Lake Charles held its first town election. Details for tonight:

 

Birdcloud (HOB, 9p.m.)
Nashville’s Jasmine Kazet and Makenzie Greenare just two Nashville girls playin’ country about the “real America.” Except these string-strummers are a bit more honest about what they see. They have mooned, drank, and debauched their way across this land and their lyrics tell the story. For example, critics love “Saving Myself for Jesus,” the story of a girl that will engage in all types of sex, except vaginal sex on account of her religous leanings.

 

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.

 

New Orleans Suspects (Maple Leaf, 11p.m.)

A collection of artists from some of the city’s best bands, the New Orleans super group is performing a free post-parade show, and it doesn’t begin until the trash crews start picking up debris. The band is composed of “Mean” Willie Green on drums, Reggie Scanlan on bass, Jake Eckert on guitar, Jeff Watkins on the saxophone, and C.R. Gruver on the keys.  

 

Christian Scott (Maple Leaf, 11p.m.)

NOLA native Christian Scott has an impressive background, playing wiht his uncle DOnal Harrison as a teen and then attending NOCCA. The trumpeter went on to a storied career including a Grammy nomination for his “Rewind That” album.

 

Tab Benoit (Rock n’ Bowl, 9:30p.m.)

Benoit is one of the city’s leading bluesman. The singer-songwriter’s work on the Fender Telecaster Thinline has garnered him numerous awards and his work to save the wetlands has earned him the love of locals. However, you need to hear this master to undertand.

 

Kermit Ruffins & the Barbecue Swingers (Blue Nile 7p.m.)

All aboard! NOLA current heir to the Armstrong persona is playing his weekly gig on Frenchmen. The Street is a bit more crowded and the time has gotten a little earlier, but the music remains the same. Expect a healthy dose of standards, some NOLA favorites, and a lot of personality. We partyin’.
