Today in NOLA 8.2.17


Today, learn what in your pantry and fridge can lead you on a road to better health. Early noughties icons Icubus and Jimmy Eat World play Champions Square, while Walter "Wolfman" Washington will swing by Frenchmen. Bywater's Bar Redux screens a noir parody in the form of Leslie Nielsen's Police Squad. On this day 40 years ago, the New Orleans Saints had their first ever game. The team lost to the Los Angeles Rams. Now, more to do this Wednesday. 

 

Kitchen Medicine: The Root of Health (Rosalie Apothecary, 7PM)

Rosalie Apothecary will lead a new edition of their majorly successful Heart of Herbalism series. This kick-off class will explore preventative medicine found in common pantry herbs and fridge foods. Attendees will go home with their own custom made Fire Cider. 

 

Incubus (Champions Square, 7PM)

Gen X rock band Incubus will take the stage at Champions Square tonight with openers Jimmy Eat World in a show guaranteed to bring on all the early 2000s feels. The band, led by frontman Brandon Boyd, is best known for blending turn-of-the-century metal with jazz, hip hop, and electronica in songs like “Nice to Know You,” “Drive,” and “Wish You Were Here.” 

 

Police Squad (Bar Redux, 9PM)

Bar Redux is teaming with the New Orleans Film Noir Society for a night of noir parody. Police Squad was an early experiment in television. The show presented a 1980s spoof on police procedurals starring Leslie Nielsen as Frank Drebin, a continuation of his character from the Naked Gun movies. If you’re ever wondered where Angie Tribeca or NTSF:SD:SUV got their respective starts, witness the origins of the procedural parody. 

 

Walter “Wolfman” Washington (d.b.a., 10PM)

As a young man in the 1950s and 1960s, Walter “Wolfman” Washington played in the bands of artists like Lee Dorsey and Irma Thomas. Later, he developed his singing style beside Johnny Adams, the legendary New Orleans gospel and blues singer. These days, Washington plays blues, funk, and soul with his band the Roadmasters. Tonight, he's swinging by Frenchmen to play d.b.a.
