Today in NOLA: 1.16.15


Was your New Years resolution to get your house in tip top shape? Today, the NOLA Home Show kicks off at the Convention Center. Dance troupe with the Krewe of Muses since 2004, the Camel Toe Lady Steppers put on a fundraiser at Publiq House. The Radiators sail into night two of their reunion at Tip's. Galactic is at One Eyed Jacks, and the Marvel Universe Live takes center stage at the Smoothie King Center. Ray Nagin gave his famous "Chocolate City" Speech on this day in 2006. Now, more details on starting the weekend. 


Today in NOLA: 8.10.14


If you’re a woman with dance moves who loves pink and orange, the Camel Toe Lady Steppers would like to meet you. Show up bright and early at Uptown’s NOLA Spaces studio for their first-ever open auditions. Alternatively, stay up late to see punk supergroup OFF! at Siberia. On this day in 1936, Louisiana clocked its highest-ever temperature: 114 degrees in Plain Dealing. It could be worse! Details tonight:


Camel Toe Lady Steppers Hold Auditions


The wait for the next Krewe of Muses march is only at its halfway point, but prep for the parades is an all-year affair. This weekend, one of the Muses' much-loved dance teams is set to host auditions for new members.


Today in New Orleans: 1.10.14


New Orleans takes off into the weekend with new plays, old battles and, as ever, Camel Toe. On this day in New Orleans history, federal troops ended the Slave Revolt of 1811. The heads of the African Americans killed were displayed on the poles of the Place D'Armes (Jackson Square). Now for more about today:


Camel Toe Lady Steppers Get Back to The Roots


Even though Carnival is underway, there's a long way to go before parades start rolling on the route. But groups aren't waiting until the end of February to begin the public revelry, and a host of parties are slated in the interim. On Friday (Jan. 10), the Camel Toe Lady Steppers marching group will grant their annual sneak peek of parade route panache at a Frenchmen St. fete.


Today's Events: 1.27.12


Today, the Sweet 610 Debutante Ball dials the 80s, the Camel Toe Lady Steppers host the best little Toe-Down in New Orleans and Crescent City Comics gets ready for Comic Con. On this day, New Orleans paid its final respects to Mahalia Jackson. The gospel queen died of heart failure and complications from diabetes at the age of 60, prompting thousands to gather and pay their respects. Keep her memory by lifting your voice with these:

Krewe of Muses 2011 Theme Revealed, and Behind the Scenes With the Women Who Make One of Carnival's Most Coveted Throws



Like the Greek goddesses they’re named for, the Krewe of Muses possess many attributes that make them stand out in the Carnival fold. There’s the negation of the classic Mardi Gras phrase, “Throw me something mister,” by virtue of their all-female membership. There’s the offbeat marching groups like the Camel Toe Lady Steppers, Pussyfooters, and the Krewe of Rolling Elvi. There’s the inclusion of a celebrity rider who doesn't derive their fame from glamour.

And, more than anything, there's the shoes.

Camel Toe Lady Steppers Keep the Frontal Wedgie in Style



Imagine walking down the street, turning a corner, and coming face to face with a band of women clad in bright colors, sequins, and wigs. They're dancing in the street and singing “HEY! HO! WE GOT CAMEL TOE!”
