Today, Harvest the Music yields Trombone Shorty and the Stooges, The Weir closes at Deutches House, and Dr. Caligari screens at Antenna Gallery. In related news, October 12 has seen America’s first insane asylum open for ‘Person of Insane and Disordered Minds’ in Virginia (1773), Columbus Day first celebrated in NY (1792), the first Oktoberfest held, in Munich, Germany (1810), Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy published (1979),  Robert E. Lee’s death (1870), and National Free Thought Day. Think whatcha wanna with these:



5:00PM: Harvest the Music- Only three weeks remain in this fall fest, so get it while you can. And get it while its Trombone Shorty and the Stooges; all proceeds benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana, who work to fight hunger across southern Louisiana. Music, Art, Food, the great downtown outdoors, what more could fall/y’all want? (Lafayette Square)



7:30PM: The Weir- Head out to Metairie for the first play from the Rising Shiners, a new company that performs theatre in found spaces. Read Helen Jaksch's review of the Irish play here (Deutches Haus)



9:00PM: Dr. Caligari- Not to be confused with The Cabinet Of…twenty years after the silent film, Stephen Sayadian made this ‘sequel’ turned into a cult classic about the granddaughter (Madeleine Reynal) of the original Dr. Caligari. The plot is centered around the disturbed doctor’s illegal experiments conducted on the patients living in her asylum. Come enjoy this ‘Midnight Movie’ material at a reasonable hour (Antenna Gallery)


*And Wednesday's weeklies: FONPL’s book sale at the Latter Library Carriage House, Westwego Farmers and Fisheries Market at 484 Sala ave, Tom McDermott and Meschiya Lake at Chickie Wah Wah, Aurora Nealand at Mimi’s, the Tin Men at DBA, and Treme Brass Band at Candlelight.
