Lingua Ignota With Silver Godling (Gasa Gasa)
A sold-out show already, but worth mentioning as a testament to the power of Lingua Ignota. Local artist Silver Godling will open the event and also just released a chilling new album “Jenni” capturing the emotional turmoil of losing her sister to cancer. SOLD OUT but worth your ears. Sinners, repent now.
Glen David Andrews (BK House)
Doors: 5:30 p.m.

Tremé-native Glen David Andrews blends elements of New Orleans culture with music ranging from jazz to rock to funk. Known for his smooth and gritty voice, as well as his history playing in New Birth, Lil Rascals, and Tremé brass bands, Glen David Andrews represents the culture of New Orleans. It’s a “bring your own beverage” event and tickets are available here.

Tigers Jaw (Toulouse Theatre)
Show: 8 p.m.
A significant emo and indie rock band, Tigers Jaw will play at Toulouse Theatre Sunday with Heart Attack Man and Glitterer. Born out of the DIY circuits of the northeast and proliferated by the online cultural moment of early 2010s Tumblr, Tigers Jaw aptly captures the intersection between Fleetwood Mac and Saves The Day. The TikTok shenanigans of Heart Attack Man have made them worthy successors of Tigers Jaw’s online-emo legacy while also writing explosive and catchy pop punk. And lastly, Glitterer is the side project of ex-Tigers Jaw frontman Ned Russin that takes a more bedroom pop approach to the already lo-fi emo rock style. Tickets are available here.
400 Esplanade Avenue (in the New Orleans Jazz Museum),
New Orleans, LA 70116
