Today in NOLA 7.13.17


Today, bid farewell to the Ogden's exhibit honoring NOLA's own James Michalopoulos. Dance in the aisles with Hairspray or get down to local indie band Tare. Round out the summer celebrations with Deltaphonic’s surprise home show. On this day in 1978, The Louisiana Superdome hosted The Rolling Stones. Van Halen opened for the show, followed by the Doobie Brothers. Now, more to do this Thursday. 

 

Closing Reception (Ogden Museum, 6PM)

This very special Ogden After Hours will mark the close of Waltzing the Muse: The Paintings of James Michalopoulos. Attendees will also be able to sample rum from Old New Orleans Rum as well as Ya-Ka-Min by Ms. Linda, and enjoy a gallery tour and talk by Ogden’s Collection Curator, Bradley Sumrall.

 

Tare (The Neutral Ground, 7PM)

This will be Tare’s last show, so come give this locally-loved indie gem a proper goodbye. The show will also feature Iji, an odd pop rock group from Seattle, the band New Holland, and Pears and Little Bags singer Zach Quinn doing a solo set.

 

Hairspray (Lyric Theater, 8PM)

Hairspray has always been described as being an old-fashioned musical, without being old-fashioned, which is quite fitting in a place like New Orleans. Set in 1960’s Baltimore, the musical based on the 1988 John Waters cult classic depicts the struggle of segregation the will of a community to overcome their differences and come together. The cast features Kristin Collura (from the Hairspray national tour), Emerson Steele (From Broadway’s Violet), Frankie Thams, Kali Russell, Keith Claverie, Bob Edes Jr., Polanco Jones Jr., and Sean Patterson as Edna. Get ready to dance!

 

Deltaphonic’s Midsummer Jam (DBA, 9:30PM)

If you were wondering whatever happened to Deltaphonic after the release of their album See Red, turns out they have been touring and spreading their blues-funk-rock sound to the western US of A. They’re bringing it home to NOLA for a special show before they kick off a month-long eastern tour. This special performance will feature the one and only Trent O’Neal on drums, along with some surprise guests.
