Space Luau!: A Review

Art Official Party-0424

Saturn Bar hosted the launch party for “art/official” last Saturday, November 12th. Finger complete with sharpie mustache, guests joined a dance party mixed by Aaron Saltzman, Justen Cheney and DJ Yrs Truly. The event intended to promote art/official, a new blog supporting and sharing New Orleans music events, musicians, and more.

Attendance rivaled that of Saturn Bar’s regular Mod Dance Parties, even with the technical difficulties that disrupted the overall continuity of the dance party. Saltzman made his DJ debut, introducing the crowd to new sounds as well as using throwbacks such as “I’m Blue” by Eiffel 65. DJ Yrs Truly satiated the dance floor with sweaty bodies and hot mixes in between Satlzman’s costume changes. While a computer crash prohibited the dance party to extend into the early morning hours, the launch party was an overall success.
