Today in NOLA 8.8.17


This Tuesday is a fine day to experience the sounds of the city. Meschiya Lake will play her residency on Frenchmen with the Little Big Horns. Just up the street Treme Brass Band and Johnny Sansone will perform. For the late night crowd, catch Rebirth in their regular gig at Maple Leaf. On this day in 1916, Pelicans shortstop Henry Antone “Cotton” Knaupp became the only player in the Southern Association history to complete an unassisted triple play. Now, more to do today.  

 

Meschiya Lake & the Little Big Horns (The Spotted Cat, 6PM)

For a post-work wind down, there’s no better choice to break out of those office blues than saddling up to the bar at The Spotted Cat for one of their shows. You’re not likely to mistake Meschiya Lake for any other jazz singer. With fiery hair, colorful tattoos, and a bold singing voice, this South Dakota native turned New Orleans local wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s known for a contemporary update on vintage jazz, brought to life with unique stage presence and deep appreciation for the past. Accompanied by the Little Big Horns, expect lots of big band standards and tracks from their recent “Bad Kids CLub” album.

 

Johnny Sansone (Snug Harbor, 8PM)

Jumpin' Johnny Sansone, legendary electric blues musician, is bringing the skills honed during his three decade plus career to the Snug Harbor stage. Sansone is also a member of the environmentally-focused supergroup the Voice of the Wetlands Allstars, featuring Dr. John, George Porter Jr., Monk Boudreaux, and Cyril Neville among others. He’ll play an assortment of works he wrote or performed on, alternately providing vocal, harmonica, accordion, and guitar duties. 

 

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, 10PM)

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.
