This week is packed with music, especially Saturday, and you can’t see them all. But you should try to make a few, and here are some samples of a few of the shows happening around town.
Tonight, the experimental band Darsombra performs with locals Microshards at Siberia at 10 p.m. for $6. The Green Screen at The Green Project is hosting a special feature this month that includes short films about the state of the Gulf of Mexico. The screening is free and begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday night. After those films, you can check out the crazy rock band Green Jello at Hangar 13 with Wreckage Revival, Anaujiram, and D.R.E.A.D. at 10 p.m.
Saturday will begin with the Collective World Art Community’s 2nd Annual Mad Scientist Ball at the Big Top at 8 p.m. for $10. The theme is “Artwork, Absinthe & Alchemy.” Loa Bar’s Alan Walter will guide partygoers in crafting cocktails, and food will be provided by Rotolo’s, Whole Foods, and Parkway Bakery and Tavern. There will also be live music, a costume contest, a raffle and more. The Slow Danger Brass Band performs with The Tintypes and Jayson Knox at Evangeline II at 1753 St. Charles Avenue at 8 p.m. for free. Our latest Ones to Watch band She’s Still Dead performs with Eagle Claw, The Snake and Pony Show for $7 at Siberia at 10 p.m. Come listen and see if my description of them was accurate. Rockabilly outfit The Bedlamville Triflers perform at One Eyed Jacks at 10 p.m., and Gravy Flavored Kisses is at Blue Nile Balcony at 10 p.m. for free.
So if you still have energy after everything on Saturday, you can catch doom band Samothrace on Sunday at Siberia with Pilgrim and locals Hawg Jaw and Mars at 10 p.m. for $7. And there’s more on Monday; Ice Cold Comedy presents the Bits and Jiggles Show which has comedy, burlesque, and free ice cream provided by New Orleans Ice Cream Company, and begins at Siberia at 9 p.m. for free.
