The Music Box Village's Grand Re-Opening



New Orleans Airlift's Music Box Village has become not only one of the most important arts venues in the Bywater neighborhood, but in NOLA overall. In 2017 alone, the Village saw everything from Martin Quintron's orchestral interpretation of Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" along with top NOLA musicians and the weather-responsive analog synth Weather Warlock, to Aurora Nealand's The Monocle, to seasonal solstice parties, to Tank and the Bangas recording their entry for their now award-winning NPR Tiny Desk video. On Saturday, the team celebrated its official fall reopening. Brandon Robert was on hand to capture the night's proceedings. 

 

As the doors opened for the Village's fall public hours, attendees got the chance to experience some kinesthetic magic with musical architecture. DJ DressUp, DJ Karo, and DJ Rusty Lazer (alternate persona of Jay Pennington, co-founder of Music Box Village's partner New Orleans Airlift) took turns spinning tracks to provide the soundtrack for the evening.
