Today in NOLA 7.16.17


Today, relax poolside with some hip tunes, learn how to raise your very own flock of chickens, understand the magic behind fairytales or learn about your favorite artists’ influences and processes at Bar Redux. On this day in 1920, the writer, literary critic and editor for The New York Times, was born in New Orleans. Now, more Sunday happenings. 

 

THINK DEEP (Drifter Hotel, 12PM)

Get ready to dive in to the city's hottest pool party with some of the freshest tunes in the city. The chic Drifter Hotel will be hosting an array of electronic artists including Javier Drada, Tristen Dufrene, and Paul O’Neil and Tego.

 

Raising Urban Chickens (Hollygrove Market, 1PM)

Have you ever wanted to raise chickens yourself and reap all the benefits of their uncanny companionship (and eggs!)? This is the class for you. Learn all you need to know to raise happy and healthy chickens. Learn about coops, runs, chicks, egg production, buying adult birds, egg eaters, broody hens, feed and much more.

 

The Story of Stories (Alombrados O.T.O., 7PM)

Did you happen to miss part one of this three-part investigation the first time around? Luckily, you’ve got one more chance. Join the Académie Gnostique for a reprise into the classification, origins and magical application of well known and esoteric fairy tales. The discussion panel will be led by Aleksandr Van Beber, Jamilah Reid, and Emily Schumacher and will explore oral tradition, common systems of tale classification and their use in identifying magical formulas in familiar stories.

The Singer-Songwriter Spotlight is an event that is in the vein of VH1 Storytellers. July’s host, Beth Patterson, has the guests discuss their writing process and influences.
