Today in NOLA: 6.19.16

There’s lots of PRIDE in the Quarter today while City Park is celebrating some island pride. If you’re looking for something harder, check out Castle at Siberia. There’s always R. Kelly at the arena also. June 19, 1865, was Emancipation Day; today, the holiday of Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom. More to see today:


Reggae Fest (Tad Gormley, 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. Gondwana headlines Sunday.


R. Kelly (Smoothie King Center, 9p.m.)

The King of R&B has been cranking out hits since the early 90’s. “I Believe I can Fly,” “Trapped in the Closet,” “Your Bidy’s Callin’,” and “If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time” are just a few of his chart topping tracks. Come here them all along with songs off of his new album “The Buffet” tonight.


Castle (Siberia, 9p.m.)

Castle has been bringing Doom Rock to the Bay Area since 2009. The band is currently on tour in advance of their forthcoming album, “Welcome to the Graveyard.”


Margie Perez (30/90, 10p.m.)

Come see the New Orleans singer/songwriter perform her own blend  of funk, blues, pop, and Latin music. Perez is signed with local company Threadhead Records. See her, “Jersey” Will on bass, and Kyle Sharamitaro on drums tonight in Frenchmen’s newest venue.
