Happy Thursday with a Garden Concert, Gal Holiday at the "O" and Shaggy Fest!

Happy Thursday!

Julio and Cesar
It's a great night to hang out at City Park and enjoy Julio and Cesar for the Twilight Garden Concert Series! Originally from Guatemala, Julio and Cesar Herrera have been in New Orleans for over 30 years.  They describe their music as constantly evolving, attributing this, in part, to their exposure from an early age to many cultures. 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.

Gal Holiday
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 Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Review. Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue is a country swing band from New Orleans that incorporates original material with the best of country, rockabilly and western swing classics. Singer, Vanessa Newman's vocal range glides seamlessly from a dreamy Patsy Cline to a gritty, hard-edged Johnny Cash, with a twang of country reverence for Merle Haggard and Bob Wills.
*Be sure to head on over to the bar for this month's signature drink - Summer Cooler -- A rejuvenating blend of vodka, apricot nectar, basil-infused simple syrup, lemon juice and soda water.. And remember with your Ogden membership all of these excellent concerts are FREE!

And you can't forget it's SHAGGY'S BIRTHDAY BASH at d.b.a. on Frenchmen Street tonight at 9:00...Come celebrate with Shaggy and friends - Jon Cleary, Walter Wolfman Washington, Ivan Neville, Nikki Glaspie, John Gros, John Fohl, Billy Iuso, Casandra Faulconer, Corey Henry, Joe Lawlor, Jermal Watson, Colin Lake, West Bank Mike Doussan, Pete Murano, The UPSTARTS, Jimmy Carpenter, Irene Sage, Andrew Block and many more!!!
