Jazz Fest After Hours: 4.25.15


Whether you braved the rain at the Fest today or rested up during daylight, there are so many acts tonight, that it is like an entire second festival. Trombone Shorty is hosting an all-star Bash, The Meter Men are playing with Phish’s Paige McConnell. Galactic is at Tips. Dumpstaphunk, Mississippi Rail Company, the London Souls, and Colin Lake are just a few of the acts rounding out the evening. Click on though for a full roundup.


Jazz Fest After Hours: 4.24.15


The fest at the Fair Grounds closes around sunset, but New Orleans is not a city known for an early curfew (or any curfew for that matter). After dark, the Revivalists, Lettuce, the Meter Men, Warren Haynes, and a dozen more are all getting going. Check out all of tonight’s happenings below.


Jazz Fest (Eve) After Hours: 4.23.15


The Fest has not yet begun. The late night shows have. Over the next two weeks, there will be plenty of power pairing and celebrity sit-ins. Tonight is not a bad start though. Dr. John, Stanton Moore, Band of Heathens, Jon Cleary, and the Soul Rebels are just a few of the late night choices. A full guide to tonight’s music options follows.

Hey Kittens! GUESS WHAT! Bella Blue’s Blue Book Cabaret is back and better than ever at two new (for us) venues. You can now catch Bella and her band of sexy misfits at two locations: Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at the Bourbon Street Pub, and Thursday and Sunday at Gravier Street Social. Come check out our new digs! The stages are lovely, the crowds have been raucous, and Gravier Street Social will be featuring drinks styled and named by the entertainers. Check out all the happenings in front of the velvet curtain.

Hiya Kittens!

Lot's of exciting things happening! The Blue Book has found some new stages to adorn…..but more about that next week.


State of Undress: Burlesque & Drag Listings 3.04-3.08


By Angie Z.

Hiya, Kittens! The nighttime fog in the city has me feeling nothing short of voluptuary. Here are your opportunities this week to experience the many forms of lasciviousness all across the carnal crescent. 


State of Undress: Burlesque & Drag 2.19-2.22


By Angie Z

Hey all! I'm a bit late this week, because, well, you know. I thoroughly enjoyed  Mardis Gras. Alas, the weather did not allow for the amount of flesh that we all prefer. Lucky for you, I am here to provide you with information for all the opportunities in town to see half naked and/or debaucherously clothed entertainment indoors. We promise to keep it HOT. I will be at the Blue Book on Friday, and as a suspect in Clue on Saturday. Stay warm, kittens, and I hope to see you out!


State of Undress: Burlesque & Drag Listings 2.10-2.15


By Angie Z

Hey all! It's Angie Z, your sparkle-pants liaison, with your listings for the week. Don’t spend all of your energy catching beads. After the parades there are lots of shows. Whether you are looking for burlesque or drag or both, New Orleans is putting on a show for Mardi Gras.


State of Undress: Burlesque & Drag Listings 2.3-.2..08


By Angie Z.

Hey Kittens! Here are your chances to catch your favorite showpeople in action this week. Along with your regularly scheduled entertainment, this week's goodies include a special guest teacher at The New Orleans School of Burlesque, Miss Peekaboo Pointe. (Photo by  Ben Trivett.) I'd also like to say "Hail, Queen Trixie!" Our very own burlesque lady, Trixie Minx, rode as "Empress of The Insane and Captain of New Orleans" in this last weekend's krewedelusion parade.  This was a perfect kickoff to my first Mardis Gras in New Orleans, and a wide, high-heeled step for all burlesquekind. 


STATE OF UNDRESS: BURLESQUE 1.28-2.3


Greetings everyone, from Angie Z (hey, that's me)! NOLA's newest jazz-singing, burlesque dancing, recent transplant from South Florida. After visiting as often as I could and falling madly in love with your city, cabaret scene and beguiling inhabitants, I finally decided to make New Orleans my home. I'm tickled to present to you, every week, a cornucopia of opportunities to get your very own fix. You may even happen to see my face (among other things) on one of these fabulous stages. 
xoxo,
Angie Z
