In partnership with the New Orleans Film Society, on August 18, 2015 the Ogden Museum of Southern Art will screen the film City of Memory, in observation of the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

City of Memory, explores the ways in which the cataclysmic events in the wake of Hurricane Katrina became imprinted on the memory of visual artists who lived through them. The film documents the unique ability of New Orleans’ artists to react when faced with catastrophe. From what looked like the death of a great American city emerged a generation of artists whose energy might prove a source of renewal for the rest of the world.

Ogden After Hours presents Eric Deaton

DATE
Thu, Aug 20, 2015
TIME
6:00pm - 8:00pm

Eric Deaton moved from North Carolina to Mississippi straight out of high school and entered a higher education program of moonshine-fueled hill country blues at the world-renowned Junior Kimbrough's juke joint in the mid to late '90's. Apprenticing under the late trance-blues masters Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside (and various other members of their extended families), Eric was thoroughly immersed in the North Mississippi blues tradition.

He played, lived and toured with other Mississippi blues artists such as T-Model Ford, Paul 'Wine' Jones, and Big Bad Smitty. Eric's sound is firmly rooted in the electric juke joint style, with dashes of influence from early Funkadelic, East Indian sitar drones, and a nod to the blues' West African roots. Deaton never really plays any song exactly the same way twice. The crowd gets a unique experience at every concert. “Blues is really a background for improvising. It’s definitely not a songwriter’s art,” he says.

Formed in 2014, the Write Brothers are Spencer Bohren, Jim McCormick, Alex McMurray and Paul Sanchez, four of New Orleans’ finest songwriters who have traveled very different roads to becoming critically and commercially acclaimed tunesmiths and performers. With over a century’s worth of experience between them, the Write Brothers have rendered songs in the genres of rock, folk, blues, country, and rhythm and blues. These four distinct voices find common ground in their love of songwriting and of performing. Their debut album, First Flight (Threadhead Records), is available now.
