Alternative Media Expo Is Tomorrow!

Yes, it's finally here - the Alternative Media Expo is tomorrow, Saturday, March 21st. I'm busy organizing all my stuff today, so I'm going to just cut and paste from the official AME press release, to give you all the details. Hope to see y'all there!

"Tomorrow is the Alternative Media Expo, ANTIGRAVITY's yearly event that highlights all kinds of media, from 'zines and comics to handmade clothing and crafts to photography, community organizers, filmmakers, musicians and more! We'll have over 100 exhibitors at the Expo!

The Expo begins at noon at the Contemporary Arts Center, which is located at 900 Camp St. in the New Orleans CBD. The show runs until 6pm. Admission is $5 and the first 150 paid attendees get a FREE swag bag provided by the New Orleans Craft Mafia, so get there early!

This year's Special Guests are the fine folks from the Neighborhood Story Project, including members of the Nine Times Social Aid & Pleasure Club. Pass by their table and check out all the excellent books about local neighborhoods by local authors! Read ANTIGRAVITY's cover story on NSP. For a full list of Expo exhibitors, visit the AME website.

Food will be available through Cafe Bamboo and dessert by Popkitty! Coffee and drinks by the CAC's French Market Cafe.

Check out the Expo's pre- and post-parties at One Eyed Jacks:

Tonight is the Dirty Expo, Dirty Coast's annual fashion show that this year features several fashion exhibitors from the AME plus a live art show before and after the runway show, Fleur de Tease and NOLA Ninjas! Plus music by the DJs of Mod Dance Party. Cover is $10 with the first 200 paid attendees receiving discount cards for the Dirty Coast store.

Tomorrow, after the Expo, is a special concert featuring Ballzack and The Buttons! Cover is $10 and doors are for 9pm.

Thanks for supporting homegrown media in New Orleans, and we'll see you at the Expo!
