Following news of the death of Carrie Fisher, the actress who starred as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus announced it will hold a second-line parade in tribute to her. The event is planned for 4 p.m.-11 p.m. Friday starting at the krewe den at Castillo Blanco Art Studios. The krewe currently is seeking permits for the parade.

Fisher is best known for playing Princess Leia in several Star Wars installments, including The Force Awakens in 2015, but she also appeared in When Harry Met Sally and 30 Rock, and many other films and TV shows. She published novels and memoirs and spoke about coping with bipolar disorder. She died in Los Angeles after suffering heart problems on a flight returning from London. She was 60.

Candlelight Lounge fundraiser happening today

Posted By on Sat, Nov 26, 2016 at 11:40 AM

Candlelight_Lounge_Fundraiser.jpeg

The Candlelight Lounge, that beloved impenetrable cinderblock on Robertson Street in Treme, has seen the good, the bad and the ugly for over 30 years. It stands alone bearing witness to the great music genes that live in the historic bloodline of the oldest Black neighborhood in the country — or it used to be before the ‘transition’ aka gentrification took over the hood post Katrina. The Candlelight is the last live music bar in what was once the musical hub of the city. Long gone are landmarks like the Caledonia, Little People’s, Joe’s Cozy Corner, Treme Music Hall which nurtured legendary greats like the Dirty Dozen, Treme Brass Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Lil Rascals, New Birth, Tuba Fats, Trombone Shorty and James "Satchmo of the Ghetto aka "12" Andrews. And although many of the musical acts still perform in some form or fashion, all of the aforementioned music clubs have permanently shuttered their doors with the exception of the Candlelight (Little People’s opens periodically to neighborhood folks but don’t have live music).

The bar’s owner, Ms. Leona ‘Chine’ Grandison, has somehow managed to hold on, refusing to let it go by the wayside or sell it — and there have been many offers — ambling through the years without air conditioning, heat or a functioning kitchen. She hopes a combination of the fundraiser concert happening today and online outreach through the bar’s GoFundMe page will get her the $80K she needs to do the very necessary renovations to the bar.
