The Makers’ Ball

Be our guest at a massive, New Orleans-style get-down at a prime venue—the Dragon’s Den—located at the foot of party central for locals, Frenchmen Street. Multiple popular DJs of different genres will take over three stages for a full night of rocking, rolling, leaning, swaying, and bouncing.

Deejay Karo (Future Dub) will get the party started in the main bar, playing downbeat reggae and dub. DJ Matty of Mod Dance Party & DJ Pasta of Alligator Chomp Chomp will spin swamp pop in the courtyard. Jeff Pagano and the Furniture Music Ensemble’s avant-pop will open upstairs with their visuals & lights show from 9-10:30, leaving the dance floor to vinyl maven Joey Buttons of Disko Obscura until midnight when the Latin Night open group takes over.

Should you get peckish, duly extravagant carb-monger The Big Cheezy will be slinging amplified grilled cheese in the courtyard. And should you get restless, several of the top music venues in the city are located within spitting distance on Frenchmen, promising an all-night street party in the glorious air of early October.

This musical spectacular is hosted by AIGA New Orleans and New Orleans DNA. Follow using hashtag #makersball.
