This week

Dustan Louque in Concert

doors 6:30pm, show 7pm

Dustan Louque and Margaret Hebert are back in New Orleans for one final show before hitting the road for two months for their east coast tour.

$10 - $20 suggested donation at door.

Dustan Louque got his start in Brooklyn making a loop based record out of his home studio in Williamsburg where he was surrounded by artist and had just completed his time at The Stella Adler Conservatory and chose the musical path.

After three years his debut record “So Long” was born and it quickly changed the course of things. The mixture of his Louisiana roots and the collage of beats and dub styles earned him a spot on Atlantic Records roster for two years where he began to place songs in film and television.

During the next five years he would only make records and film music and stopped touring. He worked with many musicians during this time from the old downtown scene in New York. He began collaborating with artist like Nels Cline and combining elements of folk and dub. After years of not playing live and many folks writing asking about live shows, he bought a touring van and began touring solo playing living rooms, barns and loft spaces all over the country. He is often joined by classical pianist, Margaret Hebert.

Today he is working completely independent with no label or manager and has rebuilt his business in a “farm to table” style. When not on the road, he resides in Lafayette, La.

Next week

Breathwork with Wellspring New Orleans

4pm - 5:30pm

Join Kathleen Currie of Wellspring New Orleans for a breathwork class - a form of active meditation with roots in ancient Indian pranayama (the study of the breath). As the breather breathes using a 2 stage breath with the guidance of a teacher, the hypothalmus gland releases endorphins which can feel like a flood of energy, emotion, visions, and memories. By releasing these stuck energies, the nervous system is able to release and activate a self-healing process that has a ripple effect on the entire system! These sessions are active, and end with a deep rest with some hands on touch to facilitate release. You will feel lighter, more free, and deeply relaxed after. This modality is safe for anyone, and highly transformative.

Zoe Boekbinder Grand European Tour Farewell

7:00pm - 9:30pm

Improvisation for Brave Hearts

5:30pm - 8:30pm

ErinBell leads a movement-based improvisation class designed for everyone who feels comfortable moving/moving with others, no special technique required. Occasionally there will be incorporation of voice/text. The work will be developed from a somatic base, to develop skills of sensing self/others. This class will help you improvise from your own deep-center-belly, and work will be developed from structured, goofy games. Attendees will investigate "bumpy flow" - how to stay and find curiosity-interest when the flow gets bumpy. For regular attendees we will work with an eye towards future performance. LGTBQI+ friendly space. All ages (16+) and mobilities welcome.

$7 per class, 1 in a series of 3.

September 4th, 11th, and 18th.
