Record Raid Returns to Bywater for 15th Spin
With DJs, live music, raffles, and an after-party, Saturday’s Record Raid in the Bywater feels like it could be an anniversary celebration. It’s just that local DJ and Record Raid founder Hunter King has hosted so many of the occasional music markets, he can’t keep track anymore.
Expressionism! Whiteface! Peas!
Theatre Review: NO space’s Woyzeck at The Old Ironworks
“Fire! Blood! Booze!” That’s the promo slogan for NO space’s debut, Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck, which recently closed a one-weekend run outside The Old Ironworks.
Robot Parade & Ball Rolls in Bywater
Fans of the automated arts can bundle up with their finest cardboard boxes for today’s Robot Parade and Ball.

Record Raid Takes Bywater
Helping music lovers wax lyrical since 2009, the quarterly-ish “music flea market” known as the Record Raid gathers vendors from all over the Gulf Coast to sell their wares. On Saturday, June 29, the needle will drop for the second time this year, heading back downtown with a new summer location at the Old Ironworks (612 Piety St.) in the Bywater.
Robot Parade Moves Kinetic Creations Onto Bywater Streets
The NOPD may not have gotten the drone they were looking for in time for the Super Bowl, but a downtown art collective is ensuring that robots descend on the Crescent City today. At 4 p.m., riding, moving and even flying mechanical wonders will take to the streets of the Bywater for a Robot Parade. After gazing at fliers that inspired both intrigue and surprise that the robots would warn the humans of their invasion, NoDef caught up with robot leader H. Cole WIley as he was making sure all the cogs were in the right place.
New Orleans Giant Puppet Festival Debuts in the Bywater
It's Festival Season in New Orleans, but standing around, drinking and listening to music isn't the only order of the weekend. Down in the Bywater, the first-ever New Orleans Giant Puppet Festival offers a chance to take in some true artistry this weekend.
Open Studios, Draw-a-Thon Break Art-Public Barriers
Before weighing in on redevelopment and shopping artists' wares at the Night Market, voyeurs and the general public alike will get a chance to throw back the curtain on the creative process Saturday. From noon to 6 p.m., the second annual NOLA Open Studios will throw back the curtain on the creative process at about 20 spaces across the Greater Marigny-Bywater-9th Ward area. Saturday is also the annual Draw-a-Thon which has changed locations this year from The Green Project to the Old Ironworks building on Piety St.
Seven Against Titus
Facing the Stage
