Louis Armstrong Jazz Camp Benefit Concert & Jazz Camp

Comments Off on Louis Armstrong Jazz Camp Benefit Concert & Jazz Camp

Support Satchmo’s legacy at the Louis Armstrong Jazz Camp benefit concert held Thursday at Republic. Jazz Camp, a selective, three-week long summer program, chooses a promising group of young people to train in brass, percussion, vocal music and more each year. These students often go on to careers as musicians and performing artists. This week’s benefit will feature performances by jazz camp faculty; information for the event tantalizingly notes that the performance is for “adults only.” Remember, before rock and roll was the “devil’s music,” there was jazz. Thursday, 7 PM. $50.

Local instrumental rock sensations Smiley With A Knife kick off a new tour Friday with a performance at the Dragon’s Den. The band headlines a late-night show with the Other Planets and Nigredo, in the first show of a tour promoting their new album, Long Now, due out next month. The band is part of a small group of New Orleans rockers that cultivate an instrumental, post-rock sound, to the delight of record-store snobs and casual listeners alike. Friday, 10:30 PM.

Capture an intimate moment at Lost Love Lounge before it gets too hip: this new(ish) Marigny bar is sure to be the next big thing among the aspiring-gutterpunk-and-wannabe-Hemingway set. The dim rouge décor, an informal lending library, and a jukebox full of soul favorites all earn high marks for sophistication and coolness, while the limited Vietnamese menu served out of the back of the building is an inspired change from typical bar fare. Open every day.

The NOLA Fringe Fest is going to the Big Apple – with your help! The New Orleans’s Fringe Festival’s hit “Love in the Time of Swine Flu” has been accepted as part of the 14th Annual Finge NYC Fest. To help fund the trip to New York City, Stupid Time Machine will host an Extremely Classy Night of Laughter at the Theatre at Canal Place. The evening will include live music, stand-up comedy, a silent auction including local artist Jon Guillaume’s “It’s a Little Crude” print, and selected sketches from “Love in the Time of Swine Flu.” Located in the Shops at Canal Place. Saturday, July 24, 7:30 PM.

LAGNIAPPE –  Alright all you legal-eagles out there, here’s a great benefit concert to go to this week, the 2nd Annual Legal-Palooza at the House of Blues! This exciting concert will feature the musical talent of The N’awlins Johnny’s, Mia Borders, and Cou-Zan Band. Partnered with United Way, this event is looking to grow from last year’s success. Proceeds go to Legal Aid Bureau. Located in the Parish Room in the HOB. 229 Decatur Street. Thursday, July 22. Doors open at 6 PM. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.

If you’re looking to get out of the city and take a tour of a cool establishment we recommend going to the Abita Springs Brewery in Abita Springs, LA. Besides being able to see how your favorite beer is produced it’s only an hour away and it makes for a great drive with visiting friends or family. Take along a designated driver and then have fun and drink up!
