Sunpie's in the House



Bruce Sunpie Barnes and the Louisiana Sunspots headline a funraising party at Republic tonight (Friday, July 18) to help construct a community center in Bywater. A Shared Initiative is a nonprofit created by the ASI Federal Credit Union and is dedicated to providing affordable housing and community development in the Upper Ninth Ward. The Clifford N. Rosenthal Community Center will be built at 3401 St. Claude Ave. (at Desire Street). As Barnes and his band play zydeco and Creole music, performance painter Frenchy will complete a painting of the group. The finished painting will be auctioned off at the end of the evening. Tickets $20 at the door. Republic NOLA (828 S. Peters St.)
