  • Thom Yorke of Radiohead. The band performs April 3 in New Orleans.
Following its acclaimed ninth album A Moon Shaped Pool in 2016, Radiohead will perform nine shows in the U.S., including two headlining spots at 2017's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. Radiohead also performs in New Orleans for the first time since 2003, when the band headlined the UNO Lakefront Arena after the release of Hail to the Thief.

The band performs April 3 at the Smoothie King Center. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 20; sales are limited to four tickets per order.

A Moon Shaped Pool, Radiohead's first album since 2011's The King of Limbs, relies on minimal ambient washes and acoustic, orchestral arrangements, walking a thin line between bleak desolation and a gorgeous melancholy.

Wade Supreme Court decision that guaranteed the constitutional right to abortion services. To mark the occasion, Paul Oswell's Thursday night comedy show Jan. 19 becomes "Night Church v. Roe v. Wade," a benefit for New Orleans Abortion Fund (NOAF).

There’s no shortage of small, independent films vying for audience attention throughout the year. Even little-known film festivals are flooded with hundreds (or thousands) of well-intentioned but essentially ordinary entries. Rare indie films that manage to break through the clutter typically possess two distinguishing qualities: characters that are in some way different from those we’ve seen on screen before, and the uncanny ability to make virtues of limited resources and modest scale.
