Today in NOLA: 6.18.16


Reggae is rocking City Park today and the Fairgrounds are hosting a brass band throwdown. Two classic dance parties will keep locals moving after hours. As lagniappe, The Bulemics, Bantam Foxes, and Mainline are also gigging.  On this day in 1921, Louisiana ratified a new constitution. It lasted until 1974. Details for tonight:

 

Reggae Fest (Tad Gromley, All Day)

Last year, five friends realized that despite New Orleans’ position as the north-most city in the Caribbean, there is no longer a fest for the music and culture. Enter the Roots Reggae Culture Festival which just dropped the lineup for two days of jammin’ in June. The event is set for this weekend in City Park. An ambitious schedule promises lots of rebel music, mellow moods, and no roadblocks. Third World headlines Saturday.

 

Brass Band Throwdown (Fairgrounds, 7p.m.-11p.m.)

The fest is over, but there is still live music at the track. The Fairgrounds are hosting a brass band throwdown. Track President Tim Bryant explained, “Brass Bands are a mainstay of the rich musical history in the New Orleans culture and we look forward to hosting some of the best bands the city has to offer at one of the city’s truly historic and traditional gathering places." The Soul Rebels, Treme Brass, and Pocket Aces will all be playing tonight.

 

Mainline (Blue Nile, 10p.m.)

This Nola 8-piece soul-funk band will jam this evening with members of The Soul Rebels at d.b.a. Mainline has played with artists including Trombone Shorty, 50 Cent and Eric Krasno. The band consists of Edward Lee, Erion Williams, Julian Gosin, Paul Robertson, Edward Jackson, Charles James, Danny Abel and Jermal Watson.  

 

Bantam Foxes (Gasa Gasa, 9p.m.)

This indie band of brothers (and a friend) has seen their music on MTV as well as licensed for use on the Discovery's many networks. Bantam Foxes are a quintessential college band gone national. Though the trio bills themselves as garage rock, they're a multifaceted group that draws as much from the hiss and fuzz of a laid back jam session as the stringent composition work they perfected at Loyola. Tonight, A Living Soundtrack shares the bill.

 

The Bulemics (Siberia, 9p.m.)

A few months ago, The Bulemics released “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” their first new album in 12 years. However, the Austin based punk/hardcore/rap band maintains a massive vult following. Check out the godfathers of a genre.

 

Kompression (Dragon’s Den, 10p.m.)

Tonight, Kompression is celebrating six years of keeping local feet dancing to electronic music at this monthly dance party. San Francisco’s Butane and Chicago’s Joshua IZ will be spinning. Plus, local residents Herb Christopher, Ryan Deffes, and Unicorn Fukr will of course be on hand as well.

 

DJ Soul Sister presents HUSTLE! (Hi-Ho Lounge, 11p.m.)

Now, in it’s 11th year, DJ Soul Sister’s celebration of rare grooves has switched locations once, but the music remains the same. Soul Sister has taken her legendary weekly dance party up to the greener pastures of St. Claude. Fans of the HUSTLE will appreciate the additional room on the Hi Ho dance floor as Soul Sister spins old and new school grooves until 3am.
