Today's Events: 10.13.11


Today, Glen David Andrews keeps the Ogden open late, A Midsummer Night's Dream continues at NOMA, and the Rusty Nail hosts an evening of Yacht Bounce. But before there was Yacht Bounce, Who’s Afraid of Virgina Woolf opened on Broadway (1962), Egypt voted to elect Hosni Mubarak to be the new president (1981), the JonBenet Ramsey grand jury was dismissed after 13 months, due to lack of evidence (1999) Lenny Bruce (1925) and Paul Simon (1941) were born, and Ed Sullivan died (1974). Here’s to making October 13 more exciting:

 

 

6:00PM: Ogden After Hours: Glen David Andrews- Today’s After Hours feature a local music legend who’s never taken a music lesson; GDA makes a museum visit to grace the member and non-member crowd with his lifetime brass chops. Playing alongside street musicians since he first blew a horn, Andrews finds himself playing one venue after the next, traveling the world, appearing on HBO, and he still has time for early gigs on Camp. Yeah you right, Glen; Keith Spera signs Groove Interrupted: Loss, Renewal and the Music of New Orleans" simultaneously, in the museum store (Ogden Museum of Southern Art)

 

7:00PM: A Midsummer Night’s Dream- Back by popular demand! After a three-night stint in May (and a Fitzmorris review) The NOLA Project returns to City Park for two more midsummer nights. Come enjoy a cheese plate, sip some wine, and enjoy some postmodern Shakespeare in the park (NOMA)

 

10:30PM: Yacht Bounce Dance Party- Smooth rock bounce is back, and there’s no better way to groove to this viral mashup genre than mixed live by DJ Tony Skratchere and Tygah Woods. Break down the 1970s samples with contemporary bounce favorites, dress like a sailor (or don’t), and head to the ever-fostering of alternative lifestyles and pastimes, the Rusty Nail, for a luxurious ride (Rusty Nail)

 
*And the weekly Thursday threshold: Stooges at Hi-Ho, Soul Rebels at Les Bon Temps, Kermit at Vaughns, and Alex McMurray at Saturn Bar.
