Los Campesinos + Johnny Foreigner at Republic New Orleans

Advance Tickets are $13, Door Tickets: $15 . 18+ . Tickets can be purchased online here.

Salsa and S.I.N. Night at LePhare
It’s a double dose of music and dance at LePhare, every Tuesday night! Starting at 8pm, the club offers a salsa night, with complimentary lessons by Gumbo Salsa. And after you’ve shaken your proverbial groove thing, stick around for Soviet Industry Night (S.I.N.)–be sure to sample the specialty beers, like Baltika 3 and Obolon! LePhare itself is a classy club with a well-stocked bar and posh decor–so go see, be seen, and dance til you drop!
