Today in NOLA 9.1.17


Southern Decadence is offering some can't-miss events this Friday (NoDef's run-down here), though the fun doesn't stop there. It's a great night for music, as rapper Boyfriend plays The Joy and Sylan Esso takes the stage at The Civic with Flock of Dimes. Tip's welcomes Big Sam's Funky Nation and Miss Mojo for a free show. HOB throws a party for the King of Feelings, Drake. On this day in 1932, the Clio streetcar — the first streetcar to cross Canal Street — ran for the final time from Canal up to Clio to Magnolia Streets, before returning on Erato and Carondelet Streets. Now, more to do today. 

 

Boyfriend's 5th Annual Birthday Extravaganza (Joy Theater, 8PM)

Sex-positive rapper Boyfriend hosts a birthday party for the ages. Special guests include burlesque performers Fleur de Tease and Kitten n' Lou, musicians Madame Gandhi, Maggie Koerner, Tasche de la Rocha, Alexis M Marceaux, Tif Lamson, Robin Barnes, Ladies of Passion, and dance troupes Camel Toe Lady Steppers. Boyfriend strongly encourages all attendees to wear lingerie to the show, so stop by the Boyfriend pop-up shop on Royal Street to score some goods (including undies, plus, music, glitter, and more). 

 

Sylvan Esso (Civic Theatre, 8:30PM)

Singer Amelia Meath and producer Nick Sanborn make up indie pop duo Sylan Esso. Tonight, they take the stage to promote their sophomore album What Now, which was released earlier this year. Featuring Flock of Dimes in support. 

 

Labor Drake (House of Blues, 9PM)

You got everything, you got everything? Then make you're on the list for tonight's celebration of the Canadian King at HOB. Whether you want to theorize about his relationships with RiRi and Nicki, or have some Degrassi conspiracies you've been holding onto for the last 15 years, find likeminded people tonight. Just want to dance and drink? There'll be folks that say, "Girl that's all that we do.

 

Foundation Free Fridays (Tipitina's, 10PM)

After getting his start with Stooges Brass Band and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, "Big Sam" Williams struck out with his eponymous Big Sam’s Funky Nation. The band is bold, tight, brass-forward, and unafraid to innovate. Tonight they are joined by Miss Mojo for tonight's installment of Tipitina's Foundation Free Fridays.
