Here’s a round-up of the notable shows in New Orleans for the week of Jan. 14-20, 2016.
10 p.m. Thursday-Saturday
Tipitina’s, 501 Napoleon Ave.
Tickets: $60, Thursday; or $70, Friday. Tickets for Saturday are sold out.
After 33 years as one of New Orleans’ best-loved bands, the Radiators said goodbye with a trio of farewell concerts at Tipitina’s in June 2011. But goodbyes don’t necessarily last forever. In early 2013, the Radiators regrouped for the first of what has become an annual series of reunion concerts each January. Their latest temporary regrouping takes over Tipitina’s this weekend. At press time, tickets were still available for the Thursday and Friday shows; Saturday is already sold out.
Eliades Ochoa and Barbarito Torres
8 p.m. Friday
House of Blues, 225 Decatur St.
Cuban musicians Eliades Ochoa and Barbarito Torres came to fame beyond their homeland via the hit 1997 album “Buena Vista Social Club” and subsequent documentary film. Ochoa, a guitarist and singer, is featured on that album’s “El Carretero,” a traditional guajira, or country lament, as well as “El Cuarto de Tula,” which includes a solo by Torres, a virtuoso on the laud, a traditional Cuban variation on the lute. Before joining the Buena Vista Social Club project, Torres was a prominent member of the Afro Cuban All Stars. He and Ochoa are on the road together, showcasing the traditional sounds of Cuba.
8 and 10 p.m. Saturday
Snug Harbor, 626 Frenchmen St.
On more than a dozen albums and scores of original compositions, much-acclaimed jazz vocalist Carmen Lundy has demonstrated an ability to both wholly inhabit heartbreak ballads and swing out on uptempo, post-bop romps. Indicative of her skill set, she played the lead in a European tour of Duke Ellington’s Broadway musical “Sophisticated Ladies,” and starred as Billie Holiday in an off-Broadway production. Along the way, she has collaborated with the likes of Mulgrew Miller, Marian McPartland, Steve Turre, Kenny Barron, Bruce Hornsby and many more. For her two sets at Snug Harbor, her band will include Grammy-nominated drummer Jamison Ross, plus pianist Victor Gould, bassist Kenny Davis and vibraphonist Warren Wolf.
8 p.m. Saturday
Republic New Orleans, 828 South Peters St.
Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 day of show.
Hellyeah is a decade-old hard rock supergroup anchored by Pantera and Damageplan drummer Vinnie Paul, Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray and Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell. On their latest album, “Blood For Blood,” they ditch the party songs of past efforts in favor of heavier fare marked by Gray’s bellow, Paul’s pile-driving drums, and Maxwell’s ultra-heavy riffage. They stay heavy, if not as fast as usual, on such songs as “Hush,” which is intended as a cathartic anthem for victims of domestic abuse.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
8 p.m. Sunday
Civic Theater, 510 O’Keefe Ave.
Tickets: Free, but sold out.
The Seattle rapper Macklemore and his production partner Ryan Lewis concocted one of hip-hop’s most surprising independent success stories. Their 2012 album “The Heist” yielded two No. 1 singles, “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us”; it also earned a Grammy as the year’s best rap album. Additionally, their song “Same Love” became an anthem for same-sex marriage proponents. They’ve taken their time crafting the follow-up to “The Heist,” although the old-school hip-hop single “Downtown,” which they performed at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, bodes well. Meanwhile, they’ve embarked on a tour of historic theaters. Their Sunday night show at the Civic Theater – built in 1906 — is a promotional event for Verizon’s mobile video streaming app, Go90. Tickets were free; not surprisingly, all were snapped up quickly. These reserved tickets must be picked up at the venue on the night of the show; go to www.civicnola.com for instructions and restrictions.
City and Colour
8 p.m. Monday
House of Blues, 225 Decatur St.
City and Colour is the band name employed by Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green (Dallas is a city, green a “colour”). He surrounds himself with a roster of like-minded musicians to bring his songs to life. In October, Green released his fifth full-length album as City and Colour, “If I Should Go Before You.” Highlights include the mid-tempo single “Lover Come Back,” which is colored by elements of country and soul. On Jan. 11, City and Colour made its American late-night TV debut by performing “Lover Come Back” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” On Monday, City and Colour headlines the House of Blues; Greyhounds is also on the bill.
