Today, to celebrate the end of an incredible New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival music marathon, Pretty Lights has a very special celebration in store for the masses gathered in the Big Easy this afternoon. The pioneering electronic artist will host a parade through the streets of New Orleans today, ending under a bridge for a pop-up performance. The spectacle will begin at Bullet’s Sports Bar at 2441 AP Tureaud Ave. promptly at 4:30 pm, and will feature horns, a second line, and all the joyous pageantry that makes New Orleans such a magical city.The parade will head down Tureaud, and then down N Roman St before cutting across Bayou Rd and ending up under the I-10 overpass for a party with Pretty Lights providing the music. You can view the parade route below.Safe to say, with Pretty Lights at the helm and the spirit of Jazz Fest rising to its apex on the final day of the 10-day celebration, this will be quite the spectacle!Happy Jazz Fest, everybody![Cover photo via Live Edits Lab]
Comments Syracuse (16-6, 7-2 Atlantic Coast) defeated Pittsburgh for the second time this season and returns from a three-game road trip on Tuesday night. In come the Florida State Seminoles (16-5, 4-4), once a top-15 team, to the Carrier Dome. Tip is slated for 8 p.m.Here’s what our beat writers expect to happen on Tuesday night. Billy Heyen (18-4)Hot spellSyracuse 69, Florida State 65Syracuse always seems to play the Seminoles tough: An upset and court storm two years ago, and Tyus Battle’s 37 points in a loss last season. Each game FSU has lost this season has featured 32 percent or lower 3-point shooting, and the Orange hold opponents to 30.9 percent from beyond the arc. That should combine to keep the Seminoles at a low enough point total that Battle, Oshae Brissett and co. can keep SU’s winning streak alive. Charlie DiSturco (17-5)Dome court advantageSyracuse 67, Florida State 62AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s offense is becoming more fluid with each game, and that’ll continue on Tuesday night. Florida State struggles shooting the 3 ball — only 33 percent — and that’ll show against the Orange’s 2-3 zone. Battle and Elijah Hughes will bounce back with a strong performance and hand the Seminoles their fourth conference road loss in five games. Matthew Gutierrez (15-7)Tall orderSyracuse 66, Florida State 64The Seminoles can play, recently putting up 59 points against Georgia Tech’s zone and holding the Yellow Jackets to 49. Given that outcome, I anticipate a close, low-scoring game at the Carrier Dome this week. The Orange look to start February on a strong note and win their 10th game out of their last 12, and they’ll get a much better Tyus Battle in a win over FSU Tuesday night.
