Stop Smiling Release Party: Commence Smiling


" width=

White linen’s not just for the bourgeois Julia Street crowd anymore: It’s also the bourge-y attire of choice for Lower Garden District scenesters. Tonight, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. at his Coliseum Square home (1013 Race St.), local cinematographer Daryn DeLuco -- who photographed the excellent post-K film Low and Behold -- hosts a release party for Stop Smiling magazine’s “20 Interviews” issue, which features chats with David Lynch, R. Crumb and others. The soignee shindig boasts oddly alluring freebies such as Jim Beam cocktails mixed by national “intoxicologist” Kirk F. Estopinal (three more days of Whiskey Awareness Month, after all), a cotton candy machine (!), truffles from D.I.R.T. (an organic chocolatier), spinning by DJs Joey Button and Drew Stubbs, and the first official nonofficial gig by New Orleans' newest pop group Generationals -- half of the beloved, bygone Eames Era -- as a member of Park the Van’s ever-expanding roster. Check out songs from the band’s forthcoming debut Con Law (two-word review: it’s fantastic), chat up some New York City smarty-pants, wash down some fresh-spun carnival candy with a sweet old-fashioned and wonder whether the Crescent City arts district just got gerrymandered.
