Today in NOLA: 7.01.15


Before the holiday, check out some music. Wednesdays on the Point is getting rolling and North Carolina’s Mipsho is in town. Hometown heroes are playing a regular gig in the Treme and Uptown, it’s poetry night. On this day in 1912, Louisiana officially adopted the pelican flag. The mother pelican and her three chicks form a stylized fleur de lis. Read on for details tonight:

 

Jon Cleary (Wednesdays on the Point, 5:30p.m.)

With uncanny syncopation and a predilection for funky New Orleans grooves, one would never guess by his music that Jon Cleary hails from across the pond. Tonight, Cleary plays at the popular, outdoor, free music series on the West Bank with special guest Walter “Wolfman” Washington.

 

Mipsho (Gasa Gasa, 9p.m.)

Jacob Sharp, Joseph Terrell, Libby Rodenbough, and Wood Robinson comprise Chapel Hill string quartet Mipsho. The band’s sound is derived from the Appalachians, but their brand of Americana has a modern twist. They are coming to town in support of their new album, “Dark Holler Pop.”

 

Treme Brass Band (Candlelight Lounge, 9 p.m.)

The 6th Ward’s home band performs at the N. Robertson locale. The band projects soulful vocals and infects audiences’ with a contagious need to sing along. Even after the passing of Uncle Lionel, Benny Jones has kept up the tempo.

 

Dinky Tao Poetry (Neutral Ground Coffeehouse, 8p.m.)

Local scribes share their latest work at Uptown’s cozy, community-minded Neutral Ground Coffeehouse tonight. Jacob Dilson hosts this weekly open poetry reading hour. Is your notebook ready for public appreciation? Free!
