BONES Dance Party feat. Ricky Powell

Templum Group, Poor Boy Productions, and Frank 151 are happy to welcome the man, the myth, the Rickster to New Orleans.

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011 BONES Dance Party will be hosting Ricky Powell upstairs at The Maison, 508 Frenchmen Street. The night starts early with THE BUG OUT!, a showing of Ricky Powell's prints (for sale) and a slideshow/lecture/could-be-stand-up by the man himself. If you are unfamiliar with Ricky Powell, here's a 101 in his own words:

"Ricky Powell, native new yorker, considers himself as an 'Individualist', who lives as an observer and commenter of culture (he takes photos, writes, does video, and pops shit at his local deli if/when anyone's around). He is currently commemorating a Silver Anniversary(Quarter Century for dummies) of taking 'Professional Photos on a hang-out tip' with his 'World Famous Slide Show'...delivering his anecdotes a la Dean Martin/ Redd Foxx styley...He has 5 photography books published (the new one published by Frank 151 is his favorite) and 10 basketball trophies, from the 70's. and still does the hustle..."

If you would like to meet the man responsible for some of the most timeless photos in Hip-Hop history and listen to the extremely funny stories behind them all, then mark the date on your forehead. And remember, do not be late! Doors open at 8p.m., The BUG OUT! Slide Show begins at 9:15 with BONES and the DMC Judges showcase thereafter. Tickets are $10. Don't miss this, New Orleans!
