You can get your day started off right with a trip to the Farmer's Market!

Musical Movie Fun!
"Musically Speaking:" free screening of Sparkle by Sam O'Steen tonight at the Antenna Gallery (3718 St. Claude Ave.) at 7:00 pm - Sparkle was recently remade with Whitney Houston and released in 2012, this 1976 feature film with the same name as a rags-to-riches (and, for some, rags again) story of three teenage singers in Harlem who form a girl group in the late 1950's. Starring Irene Cara, Lonette McKee, and Philip Michael Thomas, and featuring original music by Curtis Mayfield, the low-budget original has since reached cult classic status since its successful mid-1970s release.
MUSICALLY SPEAKING is a series of music-themed movie and documentary screenings, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, and co-presented by Press Street, Charitable Film Network, WWOZ FM, and the N.O. African American Museum. Free admission and refreshments. Contact email@example.com
Good Music Tonight!
More fun on St. Claude Avenue! Tonight it's the Hi-Ho Songwriter Gumbo at the Hi-Ho Lounge (2239 St. Claude). Enjoy this community singer/songwriter showcase - more than an open mic, this weekly Tuesday event will provide a forum for songwriters to share their work and create community and opportunity for themselves and their peers. Each performer will have time for 3 songs and hopefully the evening will conclude with some jamming and collaboration. The show starts at 8:30 pm. Come play or just enjoy! Support you local Singer/Songwriter Scene!
There's a great musical evening on the Avenue at the The Columns (3811 St. Charles Ave.) at 8:00 p.m. tonight! Have a fancy cocktail and listen to the guitar sounds of John Rankin and Todd Duke.
Head on over to Mid-City and to Chickie Wah Wah (2828 Canal) for the bluesy, gospel and R&B sounds of Seth Walker at 8:00 pm!!
There's some fun on Frenchmen tonight too over at d.b.a. (618 Frenchmen) with the The Treme Brass Band at 10:00 pm - there's a $5 cover for the show - but you know you don't want to miss it!
Right down the street the Spotted Cat (623 Frenchmen) has a triple header with no cover - Cyndi Chen at 4:00 pm, Meschiya Lake & The Little Big Horns at 6:00 pm, and top off the evening with the Smokin' Time Jazz Club at 10:00 pm!
