Today in NOLA 7.27.17


Today, the Ogden stays open late for the musical stylings of Paul Sanchez. The Orpheum offers a free screening of the Hollywood classic Singin’ in the Rain. Little Freddie King is doing his thing on Frenchmen, while Derek Brueckner showcases an exhibition and performance at the Art Klub. On this day in 2012, a fire broke out at the legendary Hubig’s Pies factory in the Marigny. After a series of disagreements and stalled efforts to re-open, the famed pie company has not opened a new location in the past five years. 

 

Ogden After Hours (Ogden Museum, 6PM)

This week, the Ogden Museum’s evening music series features New Orleans-born Paul Sanchez, a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and founding member of Cowboy Mouth. Plus, an arts activity section to occupy kids and a cash bar to occupy the adults. 

 

Singin' in the Rain (Orpheum Theater, 7PM)

The Orpheum Theater will open its doors for a free screening of the 1952 classic musical, Singin' in the Rain. The film stars Gene Kelly as Don Lockwood, a silent movie star who must deal with his studio's transition to talkies, and Debbie Reynolds as Kathy Selden, an aspiring actress. For a sample, check out the film's iconic namesake sequence

 

Derek Brueckner (Art Klub, 8PM)

To toast his stay as Artist in Resident at Art Klub, Canadian artist Derek Brueckner will showcase his "Collaborative Studio" exhibition and performance. Brueckner uses two cameras to document in real-time the interactions between the human form, mirrors, and scattered paper on the stage. This live interaction is projected back onto the performers via a live-feed. The result is a simultaneous and dizzying duplication of bodies, images of bodies, images of images, shadows, and shadows of shadows.

 

Little Freddie King (d.b.a., 10PM)

Little Freddie King is as close to authentic, old-time Delta music as you’ll get without spending six figures on an antique 78. The Mississippi-born country blues guitarist is a literal cousin to Lightnin’ Hopkins.
