Tis' The Season

2016 Carnival Parade Schedule



In most years, the day after of the Epiphany is a little early to worry about parade schedules, but Mardi Gras comes early in 2015. So, the floats will be rolling in a couple of weeks. Even with a fairly fixed schedule, the dozens of options (combined with the seasonal libations) can make it all a little confusing. So, NoDef offers our annaul guide to the Carnival parades.

Krewe of Muses, 'Ready to Wear You Out': Art Review


by Cheryl Castjohn

The Muses smiled upon New Orleans Thursday night, gracing the artistic minded revelers of our city with inspiration to last all year. The exhibition was a performance, marked by bittersweet temporality. Garnering the cooperation of women in all walks of professional life, the rousing theme “Ready to Wear You Out” emerged as a battle-cry from these lascivious ladies.

Today in New Orleans: 2.27.14


The parades are here all weekend, and Muses is rolling tonight. Psychedelic electronica band Papadosio is at Tip’s, and the New Orleans Suspects are performing a free post-parade show in the Warehouse District. On this day in 1827, New Orleans kicked off her first ever Mardi Gras. Now, more to do on Muses Thursday.
