Light Bright: Luna Fete Returns


LUNA Fete (Light Up NOLA Arts) debuted at Gallier Hall last year and became an instant classic. A diverse crowd ranging from families to teens in altered states packed Lafayette Square to watch a sound an light installation tell the City’s history using the Greek Revival façade of the architectural landmark as a canvas. In 2016, the show is returning, but much, much bigger.


August Alsina Takes City to Task


R&B artist and New Orleans native August Alsina is furious with city government for throwing a wrench into his plan to host a community event. Alsina took to Twitter to post videos about how he feels wronged and discriminated against by local officials, whom Alsina said put the brakes on his event partially because he is a famous, but mostly because he is black.
