The trees along St. Charles are beaded and bejeweled, the faces in the bars are be-glittered, and the costumes are getting be-glue-gunned. That can only mean Mardi Gras is in full swing down here in our fair Crescent city…
We recently got our hands on a really dope slow motion camera, that we proceeded to “test scientifically” (read: fool around with fervently). The result: an extra special Fat Tuesday multimedia postcard, just for you. Starring Grand Courtistas Nathan Harrison & Michael Gottwald.
Bon Mardi Gras, from the Cour Treize!
Court 13 is proud to report that Toby Lou killed it this past Friday at his Valentine’s Day edition of the Weekly Revue. Seriously. We were dying.
There was laughter. There were tears. There was dancing. There were testimonies of some of the most inane and uncomfortable erotic experiences we’ve ever heard. There was penetration into the minds & souls of all in attendance. Once again Toby Lou has held us close to his deep, dark heart and left us trembling with hilarity and floor shaking applause. If you missed it, you missed out. Stay tuned for the next edition of the Weekly Revue!
Many thanks to Roselyn & David, our love-experienced couple in residence, for sharing their beautiful music and the history of their experiences as an interracial couple together over fifty years. Thanks to the mariachi making majesty of Los Gatos Negros. Thanks to Gingerlicious and Clay Mazing for their titillating dance/acro/burlesque routine. (Catch Cirque d’Licious at the Hi Ho this Friday, 10 pm!) Most of all, much love to all those in attendance who shared a slice of their Valentine’s day with us.
Are you madly in love? Have you been married for 25+ years? Would you share your story with an audience?
Court 13 and The Weekly Revue are auditioning long-term couples to share their story of steadfast love on stage for a special Valentine’s Day show. The Weekly Revue is a variety show hosted by Toby Lou, featuring local acts of extraordinary and applause-worthy talent.
The auditions are TODAY, Friday, February 7th from 2-7pm; however, if you can’t make it today, we will be accepting calls through next week!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 504-233-4496 to sign up! View the flyer here.
We’ve got new neighbors here at Court 13 headquarters. Just a few blocks away, a new independent film theater & crowdfunding think tank INDYWOOD has set up camp at an old Wash Dry Fold laundromat. They kicked off their locally-focused film series this weekend with a program including Louisiana wetlands documentary “Water Like Stone” and a collection of Court 13 shorts including Ray Tintori’s “Death to the Tinman” and Court favorite “I Get Wet”. We were honored to be on the bill, and proud to report that it was a success! They’ve got an epic February film line-up, including some Les Blank classics and the Ross Brothers’ revel-rousing “Tchoupitoulas”. Don’t miss the boat on this one, folks.
Indywood is the brain child of mad scientist, brother-sister team Haley & Will Sampson. They’ve got a big vision for independent cinema in New Orleans, and their energy and creativity is heartwarming in the midst of this “polar vortex” currently looming over the city. We’re thrilled to have them as our neighbors, and probably headed over soon to borrow a cup of sugar and talk film gossip.
