Crimes Against Nature: A Love Story - Benefit Fundraiser for Chris (Bacchanal) and Otter (Backyard Ballroom)

Saturday, April 5
$15 buy tickets
Call 504-948-9111 to order

> official website

Special Benefit Show!

Crimes Against Nature is a new and original musical by the troupe that brought you the notorious Palanquin Diaries. Crimes is a bizarre and twisted romantic comedy featuring a co-dependant dysfunctional relationship between Happy and Gaye Daye, who happen to be cousins (and they know it) as well as clowns (and they don’t know it.) The situation goes from bad to worse, and even worse, and then surprise! Roller Skates...then worse still… Not to worry, all romantic comedies have a happy ending! The show features animation by Thomas Little and Lisa vanWambeck and an original score by Ratty Scurvics.

seeking FUN or FUNKY sellable art [27 Feb 2008|09:21am]

[ mood | artistic ]

Jazz Fest is only 7 weeks away!!

I am having another funky little art show during Jazz Fest and I need some art to promote and sell. Do you know someone? are you that someone?

Do you make fun, funky and sellable art?
I would love to see what you have!

My Artspace, Creative Outlet, is 2 blocks from the Fair Grounds and we get lots of Jazz Fest foot traffic. We will have an opening party the week before Jazz Fest and be open for viewing everyday after the festival.

I will be announcing the opening party in a later bulletin right here, so even if you don't make art you can come and see it, or take a piece home with you!!

louisiana_pix [02 Jan 2007|11:03am]

I hope that this post is ok. I tried to find an email to send to to ask permission but there wasn't one listed.

My husband and I have been traveling around La. taking pics and enjoying the beauty of our state. I've been posting them in my personal journal and I noticed that there wasn't any communities for Louisiana pictures. We created a community to share photos of what makes our state great and unique. Post any and all pictures of people, scenery, outings, events and anything that makes up this beautiful state we call home. Come join louisiana_pix and share the beauty in your part of the state.

Thank you for allowing me to post this.

MissMalaprop.com - indie finds for your uncommon life [22 Aug 2006|12:25pm]

I just wanted to let everyone know about my new blog, MissMalaprop.com - indie finds for your uncommon life.

I'm focusing on independent artists and businesses, both in New Orleans and elsewhere, as well as other New Orleans-related issues and events. I'm trying to use this blog as a way to let people everywhere know about cool independent businesses here in New Orleans...trying to show a brighter side of stuff that is happening down here as a way of getting people interested in and thinking about the current state of NOLA.

You can also read it via your LJ friends list by subscribing to malaprop_rss.

creativeNOLA now on Yahoo groups [07 Aug 2006|11:34am]

Hi everyone!

I just created a sister community for CreativeNOLA on Yahoo Groups. I think this community could be a lot more active than it is, but I also know that tons of people don't use Livejournal, but they do use and subscribe to groups on Yahoo. If you like this community and would like to see it become an even greater resource, please consider joining the new Yahoo group and please let others know about it who might be interested. I've also been looking around and haven't been able to find too many arts + NOLA related groups on Yahoo.
