Next month, Washington, D.C.'s The Kennedy Center will host cabaret sideshow performers The New Orleans Bingo! Show, with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Lafayette's GIVERS, bounce queen Big Freedia, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, among others, for "an aesthetic tour through the city of New Orleans."

Other performers include burlesque act Fleur De Tease, cellist Helen Gillet, the Mystic Ponies Aerial Troupe, anarchic noisemakers the Noisician Coalition, and Young Fellaz Brass Band.

The performance is 8:30 p.m., Saturday, April 13. Ticket info is here.

It follows another big guns New Orleans showcase — the Preservation Hall Jazz Band's sold-out 50th anniversary performances at Carnegie Hall last year, with Louisiana acts including GIVERS, Allen Toussaint and Trombone Shorty.
