Today in NOLA 9.2.17


Southern Decadence is in full swing, but there's plenty to do besides the parties around town. Check out the soon-to-be hot spot on Lake Ponchartrain for a free concert with food and drinks. Or, laugh this Labor Day weekend at the Comedy Soul Fest. Luke Winslow King plays on Frenchmen, while Bar Redux welcomes Ruby & The Rogues. On this day in 1909, New Orleans was first linked by rail to Houston. Now, more to do tonight. 

 

Sneak Peek: Lakeshore Landing (Lakeshore Landing, 3PM)

Visit the soon-to-be-opened entertainment venue on Lake Pontchartrain for a day of music, food and fun. The venue at Lakeshore Landing, a venture from the owners of Tipitina's and The Orpheum Theater, will be just part of the massive revitalization on the South Shore Harbor. Tonight will feature craft cocktails, local brews, and food trucks from hot spot all over town, with a percentage of proceeds going toward the Instruments A' Comin' program. Lakeshore Landing will also play host to a free concert by Naughty Professor and The Fortifiers. 

 

Labor Day Comedy Soul Fest (UNO Lakefront Arena, 8PM)

Singer/comedian Anthony Hamilton is teaming up with comedian Michael Blackson for a night of laughs at the Lakefront Arena. Also featuring DJ Captain Charles, Shaddy Feel Good, Tonya Boyd Cannon, and hosting duties performed by Shervey. 

 

Luke Winslow King (Three Muses, 9PM)

King rules the music scene tonight on Frenchmen. He mixes elements of traditional jazz and blues while driving an energetic rock n' roll sound. His fifth album I'm Glad Trouble Don't Last Always was released in 2016. Though King is a transplant who has adopted New Orleans as his home, he has been much influenced by the notes of Cajun country with tracks like "Levee Man." If you're out and about, catch this show and see what Mr. King is all about.  

 

Ruby & The Rogues (Bar Redux, 9PM)

New Orleans-born Ruby Rendrag leads this indie folk-rock trio, peforming vocals, guitar, and songwriting duties. Joining Ruby are her Rogues, percussionist Michael Ennis and cellist Suki Kuehn. Together, they create unique instrumental sounds that connect seamlessly and unexpectedly and have delighted crowds from Jazz Fest to the Frenchmen strip. Tonight, join this stellar trio at Bywater watering hole Bar Redux, and take in their lovely sounds on the bar's charming covered patio.
