As I have said for the past couple of days: Jazz Fest is nearly upon us, and you don’t need me telling you what’s going on at the fairgrounds, or about the countless musical offerings around the city in conjunction with the festival. Instead, for the next few days (and next weekend), I am going to highlight some of the other things going on around town.
Starting last Thursday, and continuing through this Thursday, is the New Orleans Film Festival‘s Film-O-Rama at Prytania. “A week of films that can’t been seen anywhere else in New Orleans.” Here is today’s schedule:
Saturday, April 24
12:00PM The Third Man
5:00PM The Wild Child
10:00PM The Ghost Writer
And I know I wasn’t gonna post about music, but tonight is Patti Smith at Tipitina’s, 9pm, $25. That’s not to be missed. BTW, did you hear her interview on Fresh Air recently? God, I already loved her, and now love her more.
