Today In NOLA: 9.25.15


Happy Friday! Today in New Orleans, there are many ways to celebrate the arrival of the weekend. Catch the cult classic, Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Prytania. If you’re not too afraid, it’s the first day of the NOLA Horror Film Fest, and Zeitgeist is screening creepy Canadian film, Hellions. Dumpstaphunk and Sexual Thunder are playing at the Howlin’ Wolf. On this day in history, frequent New Orleans visitor William Faulker was born (1897), and the Superdome reopened for the first time since Federal Flood for the game against the Atlanta Falcons. During the game, Steve Gleason infamously blocked the punt that immortalized him, and gave fans a redemptive rallying point (2006). Now back to today:

 

Rocky Horror (Prytania, 12:15a.m.)

Late tonight, the Prytania is playing the 1975 cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The musical comedy narrates the evening of a newly engaged couple. When their car breaks down on a lonely road during a storm, they find shelter in the house of the… eccentric… Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

 

NOLA Horror Film Fest (Rare Form NOLA, 6:45p.m.)

Today marks the start of the 5th Annual NOLA Horror Film Fest hosted at Rare Form NOLA. Today’s lineup included shorts like The Blood of Love, Murdering Katarina and The Group. The two full-length films are Chimeres and Clinger. Tickets for a single screening are $10, and weekend passes are $75.

 

Hellions (Zeitgeist, 8p.m.)

If you didn’t get enough at the NOLA Horror Film Fest, check out Canadian film Hellions at Zeitgeist. This scary flick, created by Bruce McDonald, tells the story of a pregnant teen who is attacked by creepy trick-or-treaters.

 

Dumpstaphunk (Howlin’ Wolf, 10p.m.)

Dumpstaphunk is the A-list of the funk genre with members including Ivan Nevile, Tony Hall, and Nikki Glaspie. Nuff said. 

 

Galactic (Tips, 9p.m.)

Since Galactic's inception 20 years ago, their sound has progressed from organic New Orleans funk and jazz jam band, to a different description coined by bassist Robert Mercurio: gritty, unpolished funk. While they may be grittier than other jazz and funk bands, they remain collaborative in their writing and performing.
