Enjoy Your Thursday with Concerts, Jaguars, a Speakeasy and Lots of Music!

It's a lovely Thursday!

It's a beautiful night to hang out at City Park and enjoy Tom McDermott and Aurora Nealand for the Twilight Garden Concert Series! Aurora Nealand, an established bandleader, composer, and musical improviser, will join Tom McDermott, one of New Orleans most versatile piano players, and a regular of the Twilight Series. The gates open up at 5:00 pm and the performance starts at 6:00 pm in the City Park Botanical Garden Pavilion of the Two Sisters...There is an admission charge, but hey, it's helping the Park out...$10 for adults and $3 for children.

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 has Cedric Burnside.  Grandson of late North Mississippi Hill Country Blues legend R.L. Burnside, Cedric Burnside has emerged as a multi-talented blues musician in his own right. Cedric was born and raised in Holly Springs, Mississippi. He began touring and playing drums with his grandfather's band at the age of 13.   Be sure to head on over to the bar for this month's signature drink - The Irish O-Ale - *Remember with your Ogden membership all of these excellent concerts are FREE!!!

Tonight, from 5:30 to 8:30P, please join International House and loa bar to honor Malcolm Sayer and the legendary E-Type Jaguar he designed. Special guests include Britain’s own Bullrun founder Andrew Duncan and members of the Gulf Coast Jaguar Club on this the E-Type’s 52nd birthday. A bevy of vintage XKE’s will grace the hotel streetscape, protected by Queen’s Guards, and set to the Rolling Stones’ and Beatles’ best beats.
