A number of St. Claude Avenue establishments will parody New Orleans’ White and Dirty Linen Nights with a funky art crawl of their own.
Filthy Linen Night, as the event is dubbed, will take place throughout the Bywater on Saturday, August 20. The event will feature gallery exhibits, street art, live graffiti, art contests, live music and more before closing out with a party at Castillo Blanco, where revelers can expect to see the Krewe of Chewbacchus’ fire-breathing Mecha-Gator.
Participaing businesses include The Art Garage (where the crawl kicks off), North Robertson Open Studios, LA46, Treasure Tattoo, St. Roch Market, Dancing Grounds. These stops will be marked with “Filthy Flags.” Pedciaps will also be on hand to take people up and down the steet to the various locations.
Live music will be performed by Pink Slip. Additionally, there will be desert from Frozen NOLA and crepes from The Crepe Cart, as well as food from trucks like Fete au Fete and Taylor Made Wings on the Go. Beer will be provided by Pabst Blue Ribbon and Small Town Brewery, while (free) cocktails will be provided by Old New Orleans Rum.
Filthy Linen Night will begin at 6pm and go until midnight…ish.
