From NOLA With Love (Cafe Istanbul, 6PM)
New Orleanians know how to band together in the face of tragedy. Tonight, raise funds for Houston with part one of a two-part musical benefit (stay tuned for part two in October). The lineup rivals any major festival in the city, featuring the Dirty Rain Revelers, Sam Price and the True Believers, Los Poboycitos, Smoke n Bones, Margie Perez, Brent Johnson and the Call Up feat. Alvin Youngblood Hart, One Love Brass Band, Tom Worrell, and The Tin Men.
Esoterotica (AllWays Lounge, 7PM)
It is the second September installment of this recurring sapiosexual meeting of the minds. Tonight will feature erotic collabs from a variety of writers, poets, and sensually-minded performers. Esoterotica will also host a benefit for those affected by Hurricane Irene, in the form of used books, CDs, DVDs, and more for sale.
New Moon Women's Circle (Rosalie Apothecary, 7PM)
Spiritually-minded ladies (all female gender/queer/trans-identified people) are invited to celebrate the Autumnal Equinox at Rosalie's regular New Moon Circle. Bring a tea cup, paper and pen, and tarot deck if you so choose to draw intentions, meditate, and open hearts ahead of the fall season.
