St. Claude Arts District Second Saturday Arts Walk at LA46 (Marigny)
So once-a-month I host a little live music shindig called LIVE at LA46 where I invite everyone including film industry friends, music friends, fashion friends, photography friends, animal-loving friends and everyone else! Coming up on Saturday, December 12th at 7pm during December's upcoming Second Saturday St. Claude Arts District Night at LA46 will be a special HOLIDAY SHOW with HELEN GILLET along with champagne cocktails, wine, appetizers, cheese and more for a charitable donation of $10. - promising this will be an evening you will not soon forget.
Helen Gillet will join us again to perform her unique and amazing solo act that combines real-time cello, loops and vocals in a beautiful pastiche of sound at our "Live at LA46" to finish up the year. In 2014 The Gambit Big Easy Awards voted her Best Female Performer for 2014 and Downbeat Magazine nominated her a Rising Star. A native of the french speaking side of Belgium, Gillet has also lived and studied in Singapore, Chicago, Madison (WI), and now New Orleans, her home for the past 12 or so years. She performs an eclectic range of punk, folk, jazz, funk, rock and classical concerts worldwide. She has four self-released albums: "Newton Circus" (2009) by her French chanson band Wazozo; an instrumental jazz album "Running of the Bells" (2011) by The Helen Gillet Trio which received a four star review in Downbeat's October 2011 issue; "Helen Gillet" a solo album (2012) which combines Gillet's singing, cello improvisation using loop pedal, electronics and piano and her most current recording project: "Ferdinand" a live duo album with bassist James Singleton (2013).
This evening, we are asking for a charitable donation of $10. - tis the season to give to benefit NOLA's Ark Cats - fosters & adoptions for cats & kittens. Sip and shop from 7pm to 8pm while enjoying champagne cocktails along with wine, appetizers, cheese and more. Seating is available at 7pm, performance begins at 8pm for an hour, and the evening concludes at 10pm or when ever Helen Gillet feels like it. We suggest you arrive early because last December, the crowd for Helen Gillet filled the shop! LA46 Vintage Market & General Store located at 2232 St. Claude Avenue in the Marigny (New Orleans) next to the Allways Lounge, across the street from Siberia and catty-corner from the Hi-Ho Lounge - near the old Schwegmann's at Elysian Fields.
Generally open Monday - Saturday 11am to 7pm (Sometimes open later and also on Sundays! And if we're not open, it's because we're out procuring great things for you!)
