For you Wrestling Fans, there is an on-sale, on-site free and open to the public party at the Superdome on Thursday 11/16 from 5:30-8:30pm (doors at 4:30pm). The email says this is an exclusive chance to purchase WrestleMania Tickets before the general public. "Guest appearance by Charlotte Flair and hosted by Booker T and Renee Young." Autographs from The Hardy Boys, Mickie James, Heath Slater, Rhyno and Mark Henry plus live matches featuring Hideo Itami vs. No Way Jose.
I pretty much hate corporate wrestling at this point and will not be going back to WrestleMania after the disaster (don't even ask) from a few years ago. Haha

Aw man, I would love to hit up that WWE event. I'm 100% going to Mania next year. Really would love to meet Charlotte and Mark Henry. Got my pic with Ric at Pensacon earlier this year. Meeting him was definitely a life moment, been looking up to him since the 80's.

Most definitely going to this.. upon review of their fb they are playing Marksville, LA on NYE. This is a BFE casino city near Alexandria kinda. Looks like my lady and I will be going to that as well since we got shut out of WSP in ATL.
We went to the Purple Reign tribute Prince show at the Hard Rock in August and it was a ton of fun, so Prince's actual 80's band will be a perfect NYE and post Mardi Gras mood lifter for us.
Apparently GRiZ is still in town and doing a b2b with Boogie T tonight. Damn. That GRiZ show was spectacular last night. Lots of quiet time with him and Muzzy improving on experimental shit. They ended up bringing Opiou out for the 3 way collaboration too. So good.
Pines of Rome and Bela Fleck at Orpheum March 15-17 (says 15.17 so I'm assuming it's all 3 days? ? ?) José Luis Gomez conducts the LPO in a concert featuring pieces that incorporate traditional and folk melodies from around the world. We start off in Venezuela with Carreño’s Margariteña, which features famous popular Venezuelan tunes fueled by traditional Venezuelan rhythms. Sixteen-time GRAMMY Award-winning banjoist, Béla Fleck, is then welcomed to the stage to premiere his Banjo Concerto, newly commissioned by the LPO in celebration of the New Orleans Tricentennial. The concert concludes with Ottorino Respighi’s Pines of Rome, which recalls memories of children’s songs and hymns in Roman life. ---------------------------- Celebrating 40 years at Tip's
