Today in NOLA: 9.7.14


Who Dat! The Saints are back for real, playing their season opener against the Atlanta Falcons. If pigskin’s not your bag, catch the Sunday matinee of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest or join the NOLA Social Ride at the Country Club this afternoon. Tonight, James Singleton leads his quartet at Snug Harbor and the Hot 8 Brass Band play on without their leader at the Howlin’ Wolf. See the details:

 

Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons (Georgia Dome, 12p.m.)
This away game is the Saints’ first regular game of the 2014 season. Will you be making the trip out to the Georgia Dome, firing up the barbeque at home, or meeting friends at a favorite neighborhood bar? Who Dat!

 

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (NOCCA Nims Black Box Theatre, 2p.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.

 

NOLA Social Ride Does the Country Club (Armstrong Park, 3:30p.m.)
New Orleans’ local bike club slow their roll and stop for a dip in the pool at the Country Club this afternoon. Meet them in Armstrong Park for a friendly cruise through the French Quarter and Marigny, followed by a visit to the Bywater’s chilled-out, clothing-optional pool bar.

 

The Moth (Cafe Istanbul, 7p.m.)
Like moths to a flame, people gather for a good story. The Moth is a live storytelling hour (and syndicated public radio show) that hosts monthly slam events in cities across the country. This month’s theme is Pride. Think back on the greatest lesson of hubris you ever learned, rehearse it, and get ready to wow an audience—or just let yourself be regaled.

 

James Singleton Quartet (Snug Harbor, 8 & 10p.m.)
Bassist and composer James Singleton is a member of Astral Project and one of the most accomplished regulars on the New Orleans jazz scene. He’s also got in-performance facial expressions to rival any rock star’s “guitar face.” His James Singleton Quartet brings their innovative, contemporary sound to Snug Harbor for two sets this Thursday night. Tickets $15.

 

Hot 8 Brass Band (Howlin Wolf Den, 10p.m.)
Bennie Pete, the Hot 8’s venerable founder and leader, is currently taking a break to tackle serious health problems, and the band has had to put its tour schedule on hold. However, the rest of the guys will keep the spirit going at their regular Sunday night gig in the Den at the Howlin’ Wolf. Come by for an intimate experience with the brass band locals love. Tickets $10.
