I hope everyone made it out to Where Y’at’s Party on Saturday. You missed some great music, food, fashion, and a very interesting dance-off if you did. The film Toxic Soup at the Green Project was really eye-opening too. If you missed that as well, there are a few more good movies screening this week. And, as always, there are good concerts happening after them.
I’ll be checking out the L’Auberge Hotel and Casino in Lake Charles to get a glimpse at what the brand new L’Auberge Casino in Baton Rouge will be like on Thursday night, but I can tell you what I’ll be missing here. The excellent movie featuring the King Elvis Presley is playing outside at the Mint on Thursday. King Creole will be screen outside of The Mint on Elysian Fields Avenue in the French Quarter at sundown, which should be around 8 p.m. The film is $6 for general admission. Be sure to remember your bug repellent. Later that night at 10 p.m. and for the low price of $6, crust punk outfit Appalachian Terror Unit performs with the Pallbearers, Logarda, and Oruku Saki and The Foot at Siberia.
On Friday night at 7 p.m., you can catch the latest installment of Art You Can Eat at NOMA for the admission price of the museum; $10. If you can wait until 12 a.m. for a movie, the Prytania Theater is showing the controversial novel-based Japanese thriller called Battle Royale about school children that are forced to fight to the death by the government.
I know I’m going to have a busy night on Saturday going between the concerts I’m interested in. First up, Black Breath, Martyrdod, Burning Love, Dead in the Dirt, Enabler and haarp are all playing at the Big Top on Clio Street beginning at 7 p.m. A choice must be made after that show; three great concerts will be vying for your attention. The brutal bands Excarnate, Ritual Killer, and Legions of Hoar Frost will be at Siberia at 10 p.m. The Unnaturals, profiled in the current issue of Where Y’at Magazine in Ones to Watch, will be at Le Bon Temps Roule on Magazine Street at 10 p.m. Their show is free and will be filmed. Also happening is Dax Riggs, Ponykiller and The Dropout at One Eyed Jacks at 9 p.m. Good luck deciding!
After the hectic weekend is Manic Monday. The fuzzy, psychedelic, rock and punk bands Snake Island, SS Boombox and Trampoline Team are performing at Siberia at 10 p.m.
