Today in NOLA 9.4.17


Happy Labor Day, New Orleanians! Enjoy the last lazy days of summer with a few laidback events around town. The Allways welcomes a drag reunion, and Santos Bar invites aspiring performers to take to their stage for an open mic event. It's a survival of the funniest at The New Movement, while Instant Opus returns to the Hi-Ho. On this day in 1948, a devastating hurricane with winds up to 90 MPH hit New Orleans, creating extensively damage but thankfully no loss of life. Forecasters began naming hurricanes in 1950. Read on for details tonight below. 

 

Rainbow Hangover (Allways Lounge, 7PM)

Many of us may be recovering from Southern Decadence with an Advil or two and a long shower to rinse away the glitter and sweat. The Allways offers a remedy of a different sort with Rainbow Hangover, a reunion show featuring the Cycle 6 graduates of the New Orleans Drag Workshop. Performers include Dolly Pardon?, Danny Girl, Gayle King Kong, Napoleon Complex, and Fabigail Tchopitoulas performing hostess duties. 

 

Open Mic Night (Santos Bar, 8PM)

This free show on the lower Decatur drag is a coming together of all sorts of performance. Whether a singer, a poet, a musician, a stand-up, a mime, or otherwise, all are welcome to showcase their talents. The show will kick off at 8PM, but head over an hour early if you want to secure your spot on the line-up. 

 

Knockout: Last One Standing (The New Movement, 9PM)

The New Movement’s weekly comedy competition returns tonight. Two comedian will square off in a stand-up showdown, where the audience chooses the winner. Tonight is an epic installment of Knockout, in honor of TNM’s two year anniversary. 16 funny folks will go on stage, but only one will emerge victorious. 

 

Instant Opus (Hi-Ho Lounge, 10PM)

Instant Opus is a 100% completely improvised music series held at the Hi-Ho Lounge every Monday night. This week features trumpeter Alex Massa, jazz guitarist Chris Alford, drummer Marcello Benetti, and Nathan Lambertson taking a break from Aurora Nealand's Royal Roses to take on bass duties.
