Today in NOLA 8.29.17


Today, we remember Hurricane Katrina. Twelve years ago, Hurricane Katrina came whirling out of the Gulf. We are painfully familiar with the levee breaks, flooding, death, and dislocation that followed. Across the city, we pause to remember, reopen, and rejoice at some of the rebuilding. We are also conscious of our safety during the current Hurricane Harvey, with rain that has led many New Orleanians to stay close to home. There are still a few events around town that the more adventurous resident can attend. Rebirth Brass Band will play their recurring gig at the Maple Leaf, or venture over to Frenchmen to see locals-gone-big Water Seed take the stage at Blue Nile. Pitchfork Radio kicks off their NOLA invasion with some star-studded radio broadcasts. Gasa Gasa will project back-to-back screenings of Kill Bill. Read on for details below. 

 

Pitchfork Radio in New Orleans (Republic NOLA, 12PM)

Day one of Pitchfork's two day Crescent City invasion, streaming live and open to the public from Republic NOLA. Today's broadcasts include Hurray for the Riff Raff, A$AP Ferg, a run-down of NOLA's hip hop and bounce artists, Japanese Breakfast, and legendary rock group Blondie. Stream here

 

Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2 (Gasa Gasa, 8PM)

A weather-related concert cancellation opened up room for Gasa Gasa to host a rainy night double feature. Stop by this Freret venue for back-to-back screenings of Tarantino's grindhouse-inspired martial arts movie series, played on their big screen projector and with full sound system accompaniment. For the unfamiliar, the Kill Bill series follows The Bride (Uma Thurman), a former assassin on a quest for revenge against former coworkers, including the titular Bill. 

 

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. 

 

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.
