Today in NOLA 7.17.17


Today, get funky poolside at the Drifter or learn the benefits of herbal smoke blends. On the music front, Mags is bringing in a limited edition indie residency while always wonderful and improvised Instant Opus is back at the Hi-Ho. This day in 1948 was the final day of operation for the Gentilly streetcar line. Now, more to do this Monday. 

 

Funkin’ By The Pool (The Drifter Hotel, 4PM)

We all know that it’s gonna be a long week of Tales of the Cocktail, so prepare yourself with a healthy dose of beer and funk by the pool. Local artist Quickie Mart will be spinning disco, soul, funk, modern funk and boogie music. La Mujer Gala Food Pop Up will be present with snacks, along with $3 Oskar Blues Beer all day. Free entry with service industry pay stub.

 

Herbal Smoke Blends (Under the Waning Moon, 6PM)

Gypsi from GypsiJars is back to help you improve what you puff this summer, with a comprehensive and hands on workshop for creating your own herbal smoke blends. Learn about herbs (all legal, of course) that help with calming, mental clarity, energy, and more. All attendees will leave the calss with their own custom blend. 

 

Mondays with Julie (Mags, 8PM)

For two weeks in July, Julie Odell will be stepping in for Tasche de la Roccha’s weekly residency at this Elysian Fields watering hole. Julie’s music lands somewhere in the middle of an indie, summer-y sounding place, transporting the listening to somewhere warm with her progressive melodies and sound arrangement.

 

Instant Opus (Hi-Ho Lounge, 10PM)

As always, this improvised show on St. Claude features a collection of artists spanning the musical landscape, and the results never fail to be wondrously fun. This week features Rex Gregory, Roland Guerin, Shan Kenner and Shawn Myers. Come out and see what they create together.
