Today's Events: 1.17.12


Today, B.B. King teaches us how to blues in Louis Armstrong Park, and Painted Palms join STRFKR at One Eyed Jack's for an evening of electronica. On this day in Louisiana history, Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman and the Duke Ellington Orchestra graced the stage of Municipal Auditorium all at once in 1945. Making a special guest appearance was Sidney Bechet, in his first New Orleans appearance in a quarter-century. Here's a couple of today's returns:

 

8:00 PM BB King - There's perhaps no one in America more associated with the blues than Mississippi native B.B. King. As a JazzFest performance in 2010 showed, there's good reason for that. He might be getting on in years, but the man born Riley B. King can still play. Tonight, he and Lucille are sure to shake the Mahalia Jackson Theatre crowd from under their feet. (Mahalia Jackson Theatre) 

 

10:00 PM STRFKR, Painted Palms - STRFKR hooks you in the name, and makes you stick around by getting you to dance to songs about death and the end of the world. Painted Palms lets the noise wash over. Think of it as an electronica bath. These two electronic based teams are quickly gaining steam, and make a stop at One Eyed Jack's tonight. (One Eyed Jack's)

 

10:00 PM Rebirth Brass Band - Discover an old favorite like it was new again. Rebirth's 3 sets remain the citywide gold standard of brass music. If you really want to see them work it out, be sure to stay til the end. (Maple Leaf Bar)
