Born and raised in a city with so much physical and spiritual diversity allowed Vincent to become better with his craft and appreciate New Orleans more. Whether he shoots Documentary, wildlife, portraiture, special events, Vincent's photography, "allows me to share and express my passion with the pictures I make. I was raised never to take anything for granted. So when something visually peeks my interest, I know the moment is mine to capture because it can vanish at any given time." http://www.vincentsimmonsphoto.com/ "While I can usually be found documenting the various festivals and events in New Orleans, my discover of avian photography began in fall 2016. While passing time in City Park I noticed several birds at one of the lagoons. Noticing a pattern over a few days, I returned with my camera and I was hooked. In photographing birds, it didn't take me long to understand that I was in their world and patience was key to getting the shot...and I was fine with that. I look forward to learning more about this genre of photography in the near future." - Vincent Simmons Please join us to celebrate the art of photography, with Birds of Louisiana: Vincent Simmons, January 18th through February 18th.

Bad History Month | Pope | Shame | Longface
Friday, February 9. Saturn Bar. 9PM. Booking
Though his rickety, half-acoustic songs only periodically overlap with current trends in emo, Bad History Month’s Sean Bean subscribes to the genre’s self-help model of songwriting. Like many of the genre’s guiding lights, he believes that it’s not enough to make expressive music. It has to be constructive, too. And the lesson of his latest single, from Bad History Month’s upcoming Dead and Loving It: An Introductory Exploration of Pessimysticism, is a big one: How to stop being so damn hard on yourself. “I’m tired of wasting all my time talking the same shit to myself, over and over and over and over and over,” Bean sings shakily, over a murky thump that suggests a depressive Violent Femmes. From that dour setup, the song expands and rejoices as Bean shares his revelation: He’s not nothing in the subjective sense; he’s nothing in the metaphysical sense. “The words were true, just not the way I thought,” he sings, suddenly jubilant. “Now that I know what it means to be nothing, I can finally imagine what it is to be free!” The existential particulars of his epiphany won’t speak to everybody, but there’s a larger takeaway here: If you’re going to spend so much time in your head, you might as well make it a more welcoming place.

Diet Cig | Great Grandpa | The Spook School
Friday, February 23. Hi-Ho Lounge. 9PM. $13 - $15. Booking
ON SALE FRI 11/17 AT 10AM CT http://bit.ly/DietCigNOLATix A Winter Circle Production. Diet Cig are here to have fun. They’re here to tear you away from the soul-sucking sanctity of your dumpster-fire life and replace it with pop-blessed punk jams about navigating the impending doom of adulthood when all you want is to have ice cream on your birthday. Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums) have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman's previous band for a lighter. The New York duo have since released the infectious, 2015 ‘Over Easy’ EP that introduced consistent sing-a-long lyrics with thrashing drums and strums that never held back. ‘Swear I’m Good At This’ is the first full-length from the band and accumulates their tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are. But there’s also a deeper, more powerful fuck-you among the bangers that see Diet Cig grow into an unstoppable and inspiring force. “I’m not being dramatic, I’ve just fucking had it with the things that you say you think that I should be” spits Luciano on “Link in Bio”; “I am bigger than the outside shell of my body and if you touch it without asking then you’ll be sorry” she yells on “Maid Of The Mist”. It’s the sound of a band doing things on their own terms. Wrapping up ‘Swear I’m Good At This’ on Halloween 2016, exactly two years after they finished recording ‘Over Easy’ on Halloween 2014, Diet Cig’s first, full-length LP validates the experiences of punks who aren’t always accepted first time around; the punks who throw their deuces up at the dominating bro-dudes and ignite the importance of owning everything that you are.

Gramatik followed it up with a remix of Flume’s track “Wall Fuck” (1.22M plays on SC) which he produced with young Canadian artist, Ramzoid. The track was premiered on notorious Colorado-based blog Thissongissick, reached #1 on SoundCloud’s electronic chart and also performed well on Hype Machine. Then it was time to focus on the three singles leading up to his latest EP, “Re:Coil Part I”; on “Recovery” Gramatik teamed up with old buddy Eric Krasno and the bright, melodic jam caught the attention of Billboard who snagged it for an exclusive premiere. The next single, “Voyager Twins” was a collaboration with mysterious, Armada-affiliated act, fittingly called Galactic Marvl and on the last single from new EP he joined forces with new Lowtemp signee, Balkan Bump. The single’s title “Aymo” translates to “let’s go” in the majority of ex-Yugoslavian countries, including Slovenia, where Gramatik is from originally. Appropriately, the single dropped just before Gramatik headed out on a huge fall tour across the EU, visiting 26 cities along the way. During the tour, on October 20th, he treated his fans to the release of “Re:Coil Pt. I’' EP and just like the year before when he was dropping “Epigram”, the release party for the heavily anticipated new release took place at the legendary Paris venue, Zenith. Another important milestone was awaiting on November 9th during his show in Zurich. As one of the pioneering artists embracing crypto-culture and the new blockchain-based technologies that work towards decentralization, he launched his own token, GRMTK, in collaboration with SingularDTV. This revolutionary new approach promises a convergence of network and data that will allow creators to bypass gatekeepers and intermediaries and seize control of their intellectual property. The full goal was reached within 24 hours and all together 2,3 million dollars in ETH were raised with hardly breaking a sweat, signaling that people are open to the new distribution models. Gramatik will be testing them in early 2018 when his follow-up “Re:Coil Part II” EP will be completed and ready to drop. The revolution will be tokenized!

Besides, Bianca is quick to point out that she’s the biggest joke of all. The NY Times calls her “The Joan Rivers of the Drag World,” and Joan Rivers herself called Bianca’s humor “So funny! So sharp!” Bianca’s first stand-up special, “Rolodex of Hate”, is available on Vimeo OnDemand, and her first feature film, “Hurricane Bianca”, is available on Netflix. Her second stand-up special, “Not Today Satan”, will be available on Vimeo OnDemand December 2017. “Hurricane Bianca 2: From Russia with Hate” will be released in 2018. Bianca is currently touring with her new stand-up comedy show “Blame It On Bianca Del Rio” to sold out audiences all over the world.

ON SALE FRI 11/17 at 10AM http://bit.ly/SnailMailShameNOLATix A Winter Circle Production. Snail Mail is the Baltimore based indie rock solo project of 17 year old, Lindsey Jordan. She released a six song EP titled, “Habit,” on DC punks Priests’ Sister Polygon Records in July of 2016. The record features a full band with Shawn Durham on drums and Ryan Vieira on bass. In their “Best New Track” review for the EPs opening track “Thinning”, Pitchfork describes Jordan as possessing a voice that “sounds like it’s coming from a distance, perfect for a song with lines about wanting to lie face down on the floor for a whole year and the triumph of wasting time”. In addition to her standout vocal abilities, Jordan is a classically trained guitarist of twelve years and experiments often with various guitar tunings and techniques in order to generate Snail Mail’s unique sound. Shame: Since starting out as school boys, this five-piece band has become notorious for stealing every stage with the outrageous, jaw-dropping performances that have become the Shame signature. Their riotous two-year journey has included gate-crashing a Glastonbury stage, supporting The Fat White Family, Warpaint and Slaves, performances in Europe, Austin Texas, a nomination for best new artists at the prestigious Anchor awards, headlining their own UK tour and releasing the double A-side single, Gold Hole/The Lick and follow-up, Tasteless.
