Defender Picks

 

Today in NOLA: 9.6.14


It’s time to let your judgment go as Shotgun Cinema screens Stop Making Sense tonight. Tulane inaugurates a new stadium and ignites regional rivalries with a home game against Georgia Tech. Plus, Ty Segall performs in the French Quarter, Little Freddie King plays on Frenchmen, and two top-quality local theatre productions continue their opening weekend. Have a rockin’ Saturday night:

 

Tulane vs. Georgia Tech (Yulman Stadium, 3p.m.)

Can’t wait for tomorrow’s Saints season opener? This afternoon, Tulane fans get fired up for the Green Wave’s first game in their new uptown stadium. Tickets are sold out, and traffic is going to be a snarl—check here for info on parking, road closures, and more.

 

Panorama Jazz Band (Spotted Cat, 6 p.m.)

New Orleans is packed full of jazz bands, but few of them bring the breadth of influence of Panorama Jazz Band. The group pride themselves on international inspiration, particularly from Eastern Europe and the Caribbean. Catch them at the Spotted Cat early this evening.

 

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike (Le Petit Theatre, 8p.m.)

Christopher Durang’s Tony-winning comedy transplants Chekhovian figures to present-day Pennsylvania. Ron Gural directs the show’s first New Orleans production. Tickets start at $35.

 

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (NOCCA Nims Black Box Theatre, 8p.m.)

The NOLA Project celebrates the launch of its 10th anniversary season with Dale Wasserman’s adaptation of the Ken Kesey novel. Award-winning director Mark Routhier leads the production. Tickets $30.

 

Stop Making Sense (Studio3 Warehouse, 9p.m.)

Stop Making Sense, Director Jonathan Demme’s Talking Heads concert film, is beloved by fans. For its 30th birthday, the film is getting a limited theatrical release. Bring your big suits to the Studio3 space in Midcity, where New Orleans’ Shotgun Cinema presents a pop-up screening. Tickets $10.

 

Ty Segall (One Eyed Jacks, 9p.m.)

Hyper-prolific garage rock darling Ty Segall is in town to promote his glammy new album Manipulator and mold over your brain with guitar fuzz. He plays at One Eyed Jacks tonight with Wand, newly signed to his record label, and local punks Babes. Tickets $16.

 

Little Freddie King (d.b.a., 11p.m.)

Little Freddie King is as close to authentic, old-time Delta music as you’ll get without spending six figures on an antique 78. The 74-year-old Mississippi-born country blues guitarist is a literal cousin to Lightnin’ Hopkins. Tonight he plays d.b.a., home to one of the best draft beer selections on Frenchmen. Tickets $10.
