Siberia's Chadfest has come to a chaotic end and the Music Box will be dismantled soon, but that won't stop the music from entertaining the hungry masses of New Orleans. There's quite a few shows coming this week; one even lasting over ten hours. You should be able to find something that satisfies.
Siberia has two metal shows in two nights this week. On Wednesday, Heartless, Dead in the Dirt, North, Fat Stupid Ugly People and others take the stage at 10 p.m. for $7. And on Thursday night, In the Casket, Necrotic Priapism, Suspended Obscurity and Ryan McKern perform at 10 p.m. for just $5.
The very talented cellist Helen Gillet is having a release party for her album new self-titled album at Allways Lounge on Friday night at 10 p.m. The show features Helen doing her solo show, which really seems like a full band when she uses all of her pedals. And for this show only, you can get a $10 discount on the album.
Throughout the weekend, Harrah's Casino is hosting the Immersed In Ink Tattoo Convention Friday through Sunday. Not only can you get a new piece of skin art or a piercing here, you can see human suspension, a stunt show, burlesque, and the Half Pint Brawlers midget wrestling. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $20, and there will be a lot of entertainment.
There's a few musical endeavors happening on Saturday. Happening first is the WTUL Punkfest at the Big Top on Clio Street. Beginning at 2 p.m. and going on for nearly twelve hours, you can catch your favorite punk and hardcore bands like Disappointed Parents, Sheeple, Fat Camp, The Split Lips and tons more. The fest is $10 and open to all ages. If you want a change of venue during the evening, I suggest Bas Clas and Brother Dege at Maple Leaf Bar on Oak Street at 10 p.m.
The tunes keep rolling into next week. On Monday night, The Sword returns to The Parish at The House of Blues with Red Fang and Honky for $25 at 9 p.m. New Orleans Bingo Show and Preservation Hall Jazz Band frontman Clint Maegdan performs a solo set of experimental music at Circle Bar in Lee Circle at 10 p.m. on Tuesday night.
