Red Bull Street Kings is an energy-drink-sponsored showcase that turns up in New Orleans periodically to crown the city's best brass band. The first Street Kings event took place in 2010 under the Claiborne Avenue bridge where Stooges Brass Band took the prize. A documentary about that contest will be screened at he Prytania Theatre on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m. The evening will be hosted by Glenn David Andrews and a Q&A with the Stooges will follow the screening. Admission is free but seating is limited and tickets must be acquired here. The event is intended to draw attention to the next Street Kings competition, which takes place on October 26. More info including the application for brass bands who want to compete is available here.
