Havin' Fun on Thursday with Concerts, Mad Men, Saving Jimmy's Music Club and More!

Fun Thursday!


It's a beautiful night to hang out at City Park and enjoy Susan Cowsill for the Twilight Garden Concert Series! Susan Cowsill writes and performs songs about life, love, hope, and hurricanes. She has been critically praised for her song-writing and singing, though she says she prefers live performances for the interaction with her audiences, each unique to the moment. Come enjoy a lovely spring night in the Garden being lead on a cathartic musical journey with Susan Cowsill, her husband, Russ Broussard (one of N.O.'s finest drummers), and Janson Lohmeyer-an exceptional keyboardist & band leader in his own right. 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 Delfayo Marsalis.  New Orleans native Delfeayo Marsalis is one of the top trombonists, composers and producers in jazz today. Known for his "technical excellence, inventive mind and frequent touches of humor..." (Leonard Feather, Los Angeles Times), he is " of the best, most imaginative and musical of the trombonists of his generation." (Philip Elwood, San Francisco Examiner). In January 2011, Delfeayo and the Marsalis family (father Ellis and brothers Branford, Wynton and Jason) earned the nation's highest jazz honor - a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award..   Be sure to head on over to the bar for this month's signature drink - The Spring Fling - *Remember with your Ogden membership all of these excellent concerts are FREE!!!

Fundraiser at Jimmy's Music Club - Do you remember hanging out Jimmy's (8200 Willow St.) as a youth?  It was one of the best music clubs in NOLA...It was the first  music club I ever went to, and I was lucky enough to see bands like - Lords of the New Church, Aztec Camera and Modern English to just name a few!  Well, Jimmy needs your help..the City of New Orleans is giving him a hard time about opening up the club (imagine that?!) and he has a mounting legal bills.  Come out tonight starting at 6:00 pm and all weekend long for an amazing line-up of bands and help save the music!!!
