After years of being trapped inside and nailed to walls, art fled outdoors under the guise of the art walk. Revel in artistic freedom with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two general-admission tickets to Strange Days in the District (a $30 value before July 1; a $40 value after July 1), sponsored by Roney & Boytim Entertainment. The event takes place in the Red River District of downtown Shreveport on Saturday, July 16 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Strange Days in the District sends guests meandering through the Red River District amid a carnival-inspired art and music extravaganza, enjoying local art, street performances, and live music and burlesque acts. Stretch spectator-legs at The New Orleans Bingo! Show, a multimedia musical game-show cabaret featuring dancers, aerialists, clowns, audience interaction, and a Brechtian cabaret band; indulge eyes in peripatetic aesthetics by visiting local artists' exhibits. Shenanigans continue with performances from Dirtfoot, an auditory conglomeration of gypsy, punk, and country music, plus the burlesque spectacles of the troupes Fleur De Tease and Bon Temps Burlesque. A rain or shine event, Strange Days in the District takes place entirely outdoors, so those attending best memorize the Farmer's Almanac moon record beforehand and pack a parasol if rain is prophesized.
