A Savage Garden
NOLA nightlife for the next 7 days and more!
A late but very happy spring solstice to you all, we hope you’re feeling as fresh and rejuvenated as we are (at least that’s what we’re telling ourselves), and ready to throw yourself at some amazing shows this week. Before we get to those, we have a couple of features!:
Savage Garden: Lily Savage was the greatest drag queen you’ve (likely) never heard of. After her creator, Paul O’Grady (pictured) passed this week, we examine why she was so successful, and long before RuPaul hit screens.
Caged Heat: This week sees the start of the Overlook Film Festival, with Nic Cage in attendance for the world premier of Renfield. We preview the four-day schedule! (from our sister publication, Out All Day).
INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF PUNCAKES IS NEW ORLEANS’ ONLY LIVE PUN CONTEST! IT RETURNS TO THE HIHO LOUNGE THIS FRIDAY (3/31) AT 8PM! COME AND CHEER ON THE PUNTESTANTS, AND SEE THE CITY’S BEST COMICS BETWEEN ROUNDS. TICKETS AND MORE INFO HERE!
We have 60ish burlesque/drag and variety shows for you to peruse this week, with old-school Essence of Glamor, the Night of 1000 Betty Boops and a Dolly Parton Tribute show among the dazzling amount of options. Your seven-day diary here!
Whatever you’re doing, have a great week. We’ll see you next time, and for now, as always, much love to you and yours.
