A Gluten-Free Success

The art/official dance commanders are simply ecstatic after last Friday’s “Gluten-Free Jurassic Hoe-Down.” Though the name was confusing, “What’s gluten?” and “So does that mean there won’t be beer?” were two popular questions, we’ll continue the tradition of using bad inside jokes as catchy names for our parties.

This was our second night of packing The Saturn Bar to the brim with 250 people (or more if any of ya’ll snuck in or forged those mustaches), so we’re really happy to have officially established the only dance party in New Orleans where most people, instead of standing around talking about what music they’d rather be hearing, are actually dancing.

Here at art/official we’ve been to literally thousands of shows and dance parties and never have we seen a crowd so diverse—from Bywater musicians and poets to adventurous college students—unrepentantly, uh, “get loose” with one another. We don’t expect that to change anytime soon.

But most importantly, we want your comments. Shoot us an email at artofcl@gmail.com to tell us what you want to see at the next party on Feb. 25. We’re already getting more bartenders.

Lots of love,
