Need a little art, culture and music? You gotta go to the show at the Ogden Southern Museum of Art (925 Camp St.) - better known as Ogden after Hours. Tonight the Ogden presents Ernie Vincent - New Orleans own Funk'n Blues living legend Ernie Vincent is mounting a powerful resurgence in the Crescent City as of late.
