Galactic with Boyfriend
Sat. Dec. 31 | Galactic's 2015 LP Into the Deep (Provogue) offered a veritable smorgasbord of unexpected guests, from Mavis Staples to Macy Gray. For this 2016 sendoff, they're paired with the "Marie Antoinette"-vetted MC Boyfriend, whose strip-hop opening is an ideal last thing to see this year. At 10 p.m. at Tipitina's.
