Antigravity Magazine, the New Orleans Craft Mafia, and Twisted Hair Salon are joining forces to make their respective birthdays ultra-special this year, throwing a Triple Threat Birthday Bash on Thursday, June 18, from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm. June 2009 marks an anniversary deserving of celebration for all three businesses: five years for Antigravity, four years for the New Orleans Craft Mafia, and seven for Twisted Hair Salon!

The event will have a party atmosphere with free snacks including wraps donated by Louisiana Pizza Kitchen (Uptown), homemade birthday cake, free beer, and a signature alcoholic drink created specifically for the event by PopKitty, aka Twisted stylist Nicole Schmitt. Leo McGovern, the founder and editor-in-chief of Antigravity Magazine, will be spinning tunes under his DJ moniker, dj facialhair.

There will be models mingling with guests throughout the event for a laidback, informal fashion show. They will be showing off hairstyles created by Twisted’s talented stylists Schmitt, Chris Bergeaux, and Jeremy Nicholas, plus salon owner Shannah Green. The models will also be displaying handmade clothing, accessories, and jewelry created by the New Orleans Craft Mafia.

Members of the New Orleans Craft Mafia – including art by mags!, Bayou Salvage, Flambeaux Design Company, greenKangaroo, Kristina Renee Jewelry, and Unique Products – will be displaying their funky handmade wares for sale throughout Twisted Hair Salon’s spacious studio. In addition to wearable items like those featured on the models, there will also be home décor, household goods, and art for sale at the event. Miss Malaprop, fashion columnist at Antigravity Magazine and a founding member of the New Orleans Craft Mafia, will be selling handmade and eco-friendly items on consignment from artists across the country.

There will be door prizes given away throughout the evening, comprised of donations from all three businesses.

ABOUT THE PARTICIPANTS:

ANTIGRAVITY MAGAZINE
Antigravity is celebrating its fifth year of covering the alternative and underground culture of New Orleans. Since its beginnings in 2004, AG has hosted a number of indie media conventions called The Alternative Media Expo, expanded its circulation from 5,000 to 10,000 and missed only two months of publishing—September and October 2005. ANTIGRAVITY is opening an office in Uptown New Orleans during the summer of 2009, further proving that it’s possible to cover New Orleans’ non-mainstream culture without major financial backing or outside ownership—only intestinal fortitude and commitment necessary.
