Today's Events: 1.11.12


Today, Wu-Tang Clan swarm the Howlin' Wolf, Neil Hamburger makes awkward jokes at La Nuit Comedy Theater and R. Luke Dubois lectures about his Marigny Parade at Tulane. On this day in Louisiana history, bayou bluesman Slim Harpo was born in Lobdell (1924) and Tuba Fats died (2004). In 1965, black football players boycotted the AFL All-Star Game that was held here. Now, check out the things that will make today memorable:

 

7:30 PM: R. Luke Dubois - Back at the beginning of Prospect.2, Dubois lead a march through the Marigny whereby four marching bands converged at one, glorious Washington Square Park. Tonight, Dubois takes to the Newcomb Art Gallery stage to discuss his Prospect contribution, and the nexus of composition, performance art and sound design that he occupies. (Newcomb Art Gallery)

 

8:30 PM: Neil Hamburger - You won't be sure whether to feel sorry for him, or laugh. But, either way, this Portland-based comedian is pure spectacle. Expect the holy trinity of celebrity needling, self depecration, and, of course, long, awkward pauses. (La Nuit Comedy Theater)

 

10:00 PM: Wu-Tang Clan  - RZA. GZA. Method Man. Chef Raekwon. Ghostface Killah. Inspectah Deck. U-God. Masta Killa. Cappadonna. The Shaolin masters take the stage at the Howlin' Wolf, marking the New Orleans stop on their long-awaited return to form. The East Coast revolutionaries come back from the old school to show the new jacks how it's done. Protect ya neck. (Howlin' Wolf)
