Today in NOLA 8.1.17


It's a fine day for music in New Orleans this Tuesday. Rebirth Brass Band will play their recurring gig at the Maple Leaf, while electro-pop star Nite Jewel performs Gasa Gasa. Over on Frenchmen, check out Treme Brass Band at d.b.a. and then mosey up the street to Blue Nile to see locals-gone-big Water Seed. On this day in 1968, Jimi Hendrix performed at City Park. The concert cost $4 advanced sale or $5 at the gate. Though you can't see the Voodoo Child himself, read on for more musical happenings in city. 

 

Water Seed (Blue Nile, 9PM)

In the midst of a nationwide tour celebrating their album We Are Stars, Water Seed returns to their Tuesday night residency at Blue Nile for a special appearance. Inspired by Sly & the Family Stone and Earth, Wind & Fire, with interstellar touches in the spirit of classic Bowie, this NOLA funk outfit has developed its own distinct sound around town. 

 

Nite Jewel (Gasa Gasa, 9PM)

Los Angeles-based Nite Jewel will bring her electro-pop sounds to Gasa Gasa tonight, in support of her fourth album, Real High. From the R&B tinged ode to Janet Jackson and Mary J. Blige in the form of "Real High" to the breathy summer jam "2 Good 2 Be True," Nite Jewel's sound is a diverse synthesization of influences that no other artist is doing on the scene. Romantic synth-funk singer Harriet Brown and visual artist & musician Geneva Jacuzzi will perform in support. 

 

Treme Brass Band (d.b.a, 9PM)

Check out the New Orleans tradition, the Treme Brass Band, tonight at d.b.a.. The band, which continues to make music after the loss of the iconic Uncle Lionel Batiste in 2012, has played for audiences all around the world. They’ve been featured in the HBO show “Treme” as well as Spike Lee’s documentary “When The Levees Broke.’

 

Rebirth Brass Band (Maple Leaf Bar, 10:30PM)

Come out to Oak for not one, but two sets from the double Grammy-winning brass band. Led by Derrick Tabb and Tuba Phil, the group has played worldwide, but there is no better place to see them than here, at home.
