There are a handful of days in your life that seem to leave you forever changed. When you graduate. Get married. Have a kid (or four). And of course - your first concert. Remember yours? I remember mine: Night Ranger! On their “Midnight Madness” tour opening for an Ozzy-less Black Sabbath at the Civic Center in Beaumont, Texas. It’s a lot to process, I know. I was 9 years old and in 4th grade, and we didn’t get to stay for Black Sabbath. Klint Rhodes’ parents took Klint and me, but earlier in the day there was a record – as in LP – signing at the neighbgorhood record store Sound Castle. We missed getting our LPs signed but caught a glimpse of Night Ranger up close. That night at the show it was, well, amazing. They played all the songs a 9-year-old me would want to hear. There was even a sea of lighters lit up during “Sister Christian.” During which Clint’s dad leaned back and asked the guy behind us “Son, what’s with all the lighters?” Good stuff. And guess what? Night Ranger are still doing it! This Saturday they’re opening for Journey and Foreigner at the New Orleans arena. And it’s even almost the same line-up. In fact if you look at their website you would swear that Will Farrell were in the band, but it’s drummer Kelly Keagy. Alas, no cowbell.

A couple who want to demolish their historic Henry Clay Avenue home and replace it with a new house found an unsympathetic audience at City Hall on Tuesday, and their plans will now carry an unfavorable recommendation when they appear before the New Orleans City Council.
