Today in New Orleans: 5.22.12


Today, the New Orleans Food and Wine Experience kicks off, New Orleanians get a sneak peek of a documentary about violence in our city and one of the city's best sax men plays on Bourbon. On this day in New Orleans history, Ernie K-Doe's Mother-in-Law hit  #1 on the Billboard pop charts (1961), and five members of N.W.A. were arrested after a 50-person riot broke out at the Sheraton Hotel when the L.A. rappers were denied entry (1992). Now back to today:

 

New Orleans Food and Wine Experience (JW Marriott, 6 p.m.) The 20th anniversary of the big event kicks off with a bang, as the man who owns the Sazerac company, Bill Goldring, is honored by the festival with a $250-a-head dinner. Proceeds from the event go to Second Harvest Food Bank, along with other local food-minded organizations.

 

Calvin Johnson (Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse, 8:00 p.m.) One of New Orleans' prominent saxophone players, Johnson has played with the likes of Harry Connick Jr, Aaron Neville, Mystikal, Mannie Fresh, Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Tonight, see him strike out on his own in one of Bourbon Street's classiest clubs.

 

Shell Shocked (Louisiana Humanities Center, 6:30 p.m.) Tonight, the LHC screens a rough cut of this film about violence and its effects on children's lives, and raises money for the final edit. The screening will be preceeded by a panel discussion with the film's director, and other community members involved in youth development and crime, and a silent auction will take place throughout the evening to raise money.
