Today in NOLA: 9.9.14


What are you having for lunch? And is it too soon to think about dinner? The 2014 Restaurant Week menus can’t satisfy your cravings, but they will help you decide where to dine tonight. Galactic drummer Stanton Moore brings his eponymous trio to Snug Harbor for the second in a series of September gigs. Plus, notable punk shows in Midcity and downtown. Here’s the Tuesday rundown:

 

We Live to Eat Restaurant Week (Participating restaurants city-wide)
You don’t need an excuse to try a new restaurant in New Orleans, but perhaps you need a nudge. Through Sunday, the talented chefs at some of the city’s finest establishments will offer special prix-fixe lunches capped at $20 and dinners for $39 or less per person so you can taste the season’s harvest without breaking the bank. Read NoDef’s full preview, and check the We Live to Eat website for the full list of restaurants and their participating menus.

 

Pears, Donovan Wolfington, Joystick, I’m Fine (Banks Street Bar, 8p.m.)
Loud-as-hell loud punks Pears are heading off on national tour and they’re starting in Midcity. Send them on their way tonight when they play with noise punks Donovan Wolfington, ska band Joystick, and upbeat emo revivalists I’m Fine at Banks Street Bar.

 

Bass Drum of Death, Bottomfeeders, Yuppie Teeth (Siberia, 10p.m.)
Oxford, Mississippi’s Bass Drum of Death are the genuine long-hair-don’t-care garage rock article. Their new album Rip This comes out soon; for a preview, check them out at Siberia tonight, with local support from punk bands Bottomfeeders and Yuppie Teeth. Tickets $8.

 

Stanton Moore Trio (Snug Harbor, 10p.m.)
On Tuesday evenings this September, Astral Project bassist James Singleton and pianist David Torkanowsky join Galactic drummer Stanton Moore on at Snug Harbor, a local favorite among the jazz venues on Frenchmen Street. Each man in this trio can boast a broad range, but this month, their sets together will be oriented towards modern jazz and funk. Tickets $15.
