Live music in New Orleans this week (Feb. 27-March 5, 2018)

Melissa Errico, Big Business, Noel Gallagher and Bubble Bath Records


Melissa Errico
Thu. March 1 | Melissa Errico is known for starring roles in Broadway productions of My Fair Lady and High Society, as well as releasing several albums. She sings tunes by Stephen Sondheim and others, accompanied by John McDaniel on piano. Bryan Batt joins her for a few songs. At 7:30 p.m. at NOCCA.

Big Business
Thu. March 1 | Over the course of five methodical, posterior-punting albums, Seattle's Big Business — consisting of two moonlighting Melvins and operating as if that band's less-bizarre little brother — has whittled its metallic stoner-rock attack into a javelin. 2016's Command Your Weather (Joyful Noise) is its latest. Buildings and Space Cadaver open at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Fri. March 2 | With the expected gale-force bluster and a cinematic assist from Steven Soderbergh scorer David Holmes (as producer), Oasis survivor Noel Gallagher sounds like a man itching to outrun his past on Who Built the Moon? (Sour Mash). The November release features cameos by actual Brit-rock icons Paul Weller (The Jam) and Johnny Marr (The Smiths). At 8 p.m. at Orpheum Theater.

Bubble Bath Records launch
Sat. March 3 | The New Orleans-based progressive music label offers up an immersive live sampler pack from its roster: expansive jazz outfit Max Moran & Neospectric, ethereal R&B artist Kristina Morales with the Inner Wild, and hip-hop supergroup THE GRID with rapper Nesby Phips. At 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
