Today in NOLA 8.5.17


Today, celebrate International Sailor Moon Day with Kawaii NOLA and Krewe du Moon. Contemporary Arts Center hosts the annual White Linen Night, while the Ogden kicks off the statewide exhibition on contemporary art. The great Wanda Jackson will take the stage at Tip's. On this day in 1984, NOLA-born rhythm and blues pianist Tuts Washington passed away while performing at the World's Fair in New Orleans. Now, more to do this Saturday. 

 

Sailor Moon Day (Kawaii NOLA, 1PM)

Moon Prism Power, make up! Today, Kawaii NOLA opens its doors for a party in celebration of International Sailor Moon Day for a party in collab with Krewe du Moon, a dance subkrewe of the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus with a penchant for Sailor Moon cosplay. Be sure to come dressed as your favorite Sailor Soldier, as the best-dressed attendees will have the chance to receive one of the krewe’s prized throws, which include sailor scout garters, Sailor V masks, perler bows, scout symbol coasters, and crocheted tiaras and moon wands. 

 

Whitney White Linen Night (CAC, 5:30PM)

The biggest night of the year for the Warehouse District art scene begins at the CAC and stretches all the way down Julia Street as galleries throw their doors open for the white-clad public. The 300-700 blocks will also feature cuisine and cocktails from over two dozen restaurants, plus live music. The opening reception for Ephemera Obscura, a new show featuring 34 local artists, lasts from 5:30PM-9:30PM, while the Official Afterparty will run 9PM-midnight and feature live sets from DJ RQ Away. Admission to the CAC $10; free admission at galleries throughout the Arts District; numerous food and drink vendors on hand.

 

Louisiana Contemporary (Ogden Museum 5:30PM)

The Ogden Museum of Southern Art’s inaugural Louisiana Contemporary is upon us, as the annual event returns in conjunction with the Whitney White Linen Night. Now in its fifth year, the statewide, juried exhibition highlights contemporary artists from across the Boot. 

 

Wanda Jackson (Tipitina's, 8:30PM)

Wanda Jackson is a living legend. From pioneering what would become the rock & roll genre to dating the King, the acknowledged First Lady of Rockabilly is one of the most successful artists of all time. She's been touring for over half a century, so she's bound to put on a stellar show as she takes the stage at Tip's.
