8-bit byting Anamanaguchi are playing One Eyed Jacks tonight, along with Peelander-Z and The Local Skank.

If music’s not your thing (move), or find a cinematic alternative at the CAC. Tonight, the Contemporary Arts Center, in conjunction with theirexhibit “Then and Now,” The New Orleans Film Society presents four short films that represent a generation of Louisiana filmmaking: paul Grass’s  Heavy Brass (1998), Henry Griffin’s Mutiny (1999), Benh Zeitlin’s Glory at Sea, (2008), and Andrew Bryan’s Statue, the winner of the Louisiana Shorts award at NOFF 2010.

 

New Orleans, where we make the best everything, and prove Oscar Wilde wrong, especially when he says nonsense like: "Ha! Tuesday.  How depressing."
