You can’t keep a good krewe down. The Krewe of Orpheus’ second annual 13th Night party — the group’s official kickoff of the Carnival season — naturally falls on the 13th night after Christmas: Saturday, Jan. 7 — the same time as the Saints’ first-round playoff game against the Detroit Lions. In true New Orleans style, instead of perceiving the playoff as competition, Orpheus is making it a feature of its party, setting up a big screen as well as smaller screens around the venue.

The 13th Night party is from 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) to midnight at Generations Hall (310 Andrew Higgins Drive) and features live music by the Gashouse Gorillaz and a special performance by the 610 Stompers. Refreshments include an open bar, a raw bar by Acme Oyster House and a variety of dishes from other local restaurants.

The print  Number One Tiger Fan by George Rodrigue will be auctioned during the party.

A live auction features artist George Rodrigue’s Blue Dog print Number One Tiger Fan, which has been signed by Rodrigue and LSU coach Les Miles. The event benefits the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts, a nonprofit organization that promotes the importance of visual arts to students and funds and develops arts programs.

The Orpheus party is open to the public. Tickets are $65 per person at the door.
